Johnson was waived by the Chargers on Thursday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.
Johnson was waived to make room for Kyle Wilson on the 53-man roster. After being promoted to the active roster in mid-November, Johnson played four games with the Chargers and racked up three tackles. He'll now be subjected to league waivers, and be free to search for a depth role elsewhere if he goes unclaimed.
Johnson takes the roster spot vacated by Denzel Perryman (knee), who was placed on injured reserve. Johnson spent a short amount of time with the Cowboys in 2017, and is now slated to provide depth at the linebacker position for the Chargers.
