Browns' Kevin Johnson: Packs bags for Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Browns on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Johnson's deal includes up to $6 million with incentives. The 2015 first-round pick performed admirably as Buffalo's No. 3 cornerback last season, and he stands to handle a similar rotational role in the Browns' secondary. Johnson also showcased an ability to contribute on special teams with the Bills.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Free agency looms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Johnson served as the No. 3 cornerback for the Bills this season, logging 341 snaps on defense and recording 36 tackles, five passes defensed and a sack. Johnson is a 2015 first-rounder, but injuries have seemingly zapped him of some athleticism and his role for whatever team wants him will be more of a No. 2 or No. 3 corner and special teams player. The Bills will probably be in the mix to retain his services, assuming the cost isn't too high.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Highest weekly snap count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had a season-high four tackles and was on the field for 52 percent of the defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

The Bills are beginning to show some impatience with Levi Wallace's coverage lapses, so the veteran Johnson served as the co-starter at CB2 with Wallace throughout Week 11. Neither player has much fantasy value if he's sharing time with the other, but if one can wrestle a clear-cut starting role, there are tackles to be had since teams have started shying away from the Bills' stud corner, Tre'Davious White.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Another full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson will be ready to resume his role as a depth cornerback and won't see much action unless something happens to one of the three healthy corners ahead of him. Oddly enough, the Bills don't have a single player listed as questionable or doubtful for Sunday's tilt in Cleveland, quite rare for a Week 10 game not following a bye week.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Johnson didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, but he doesn't appear to be limited by the issue any longer. Expect the 2015 first-round pick to play his usual depth role in Buffalo's secondary during Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Sitting out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson has played all eight games this season and averaged 17.8 defensive snaps and 15.7 on special teams. He's recorded 13 tackles, a sack and two pass breakups in the process. If Johnson's unable to play Sunday against the Browns, Taron Johnson, Dean Marlowe and Siran Neal would likely all log additional defensive reps.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) is absent from Wednesday's injury report.

Johnson received X-rays after Sunday's loss to Philadelphia, but he appears to have escaped without any notable injuries. All signs point to the 2015 first-round pick playing his usual rotational role versus Washington in Week 9.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) was seen going into the X-ray room following Sunday's game against the Eagles, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear how Johnson suffered the injury or what he's even dealing with, but the fact that he needed to get X-rays suggests it could be more than just a minor issue.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Ready for action Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (neck) will play in Sunday's matchup against the Eagles.

Johnson only logged limited practice time during the week, so this news solidifies his health heading into the game. The 2015 first-round pick primarily works in a reserve role, so he'll likely continue on that path barring injuries during the game.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Question mark for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (neck) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson works in a reserve role, while the return of slot corner Taron Johnson has pushed him even further down the depth chart. However, in a possible tight game between two decent teams, we imagine having Johnson's experience and depth would help make a strong defense even stronger.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson, who suffered a stinger during Sunday's win over Miami, was limited during Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

That bodes well considering the veteran reserve corner has two more practices to amp up his participation in advance of Sunday's game against the Eagles. Johnson has served the Bills well in a reserve role, though his limited snap count has only yielded 10 tackles and two passes defended to date.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Dealing with stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is dealing with a stinger following Sunday's win over the Dolphins, Sal Capaccio of WGR reports.

Johnson only played 26 snaps (10 defensive) in Sunday's win, his lowest total since Week 1. Look for more information on his status to come once the team releases its practice report Wednesday.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Plays 39 snaps in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson logged 39 snaps in a win over the Bengals on Sunday, finishing the game with three tackles (two solo) and a sack.

Johnson continues to make waves in a limited role on a talented Bills defense. For a second straight week, he finished with 25 snaps on defense. As solid as he has been through three weeks, Johnson faces a tall order in his team's upcoming Week 4 matchup, a home contest against the division-rival Patriots.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Clear No. 3 corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is the only listed backup to both outside cornerbacks -- Tre'Davious White and Levi Wallace -- on the team's first unofficial depth chart, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

This is where things have been trending, as the Bills will primarily use other depth cornerbacks out of the slot. That may curtail Johnson's playing time to begin the season, but if anything were to happen to either White or Wallace he'd be looking at a full starter's workload.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Solid footing at No. 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has been pegged by the coaching staff as the No. 3 cornerback for the regular season, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

That's the good news, as the first-round pick of the Texans in 2015 has secured a spot on the team with an excellent summer, one that the Bills feel leaves them in good hands should anything happen to starters Tre'Davious White or Levi Wallace. The bad is that Johnson is no longer practicing in the slot; the thought being that someone else will man that spot while Johnson serves as valuable insurance on the outside. That could curtail his playing time until injury strikes one of the aforementioned two starters, or if the Bills start to use Johnson more as a replacement for the still inexperienced Wallace.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Clear-cut No. 3 corner?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson's teammate EJ Gaines will miss the next several weeks due to a groin injury, leaving Johnson in position to seal the third corner role behind starters Tre'Davious White and Levi Wallace, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson is no slouch of a player as a first-rounder from 2015 who had some success before injuries set back his career, so he may have won this job anyway. He's having a strong summer and would be able to step into a pure starter's role should anything happen to White or Wallace. Johnson could even overtake the latter at some point this season if he keeps up the strong work.

Bills' Kevin Johnson: Facing competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will face competition for a starting cornerback spot in 2019 after the Bills signed E.J. Gaines on Monday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Johnson signed with the Bills earlier this month after being waived by the Texans. The No. 16 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, he's coming off three injury-plagued seasons in which he suited up for just 19 games, including only one game in 2018. The physical cornerback will square off with Levi Wallace and the newly-acquired Gaines for the No. 2 job this offseason.

Kevin Johnson: Set to play for Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has agreed to terms with the Bills, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Johnson, who was recently let go by the Texans, has had trouble staying healthy over the past few seasons, but if he can stay on the field for any length of time, the No. 16 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft will provide a nice boost to Buffalo's cornerback depth.

Kevin Johnson: Waived by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was waived by the Texans on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Johnson was owed over $9 million in 2019, an unpalatable salary for a player who was projected to serve as a backup. Since that sum was only guaranteed for injury until the start of the league year, it can be assumed that Johnson's release signals he's back to full health after landing on injured reserve last September due to a concussion.

Texans' Kevin Johnson: Texans looking to move on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has been made available for trade by the Texans and could be released, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Johnson is coming off three injury-plagued seasons in which he played only 19 games, including only one game in 2018. The Texans picked up his $9.07 million option for 2019 last spring, but the money is not yet fully guaranteed. Given his contract and injury history, finding a trade partner is likely to be challenging.
