Johnson has announced his retirement from the NFL, according to his personal Instagram account.
Johnson decided to call it quits on his 32nd birthday, retiring from the NFL after eight seasons. He most recently racked up 38 tackles (25 solo) and one pass defensed in 14 games with the Titans throughout the 2016 season. Prior to that, he spent seven years with the Cardinals, totaling 382 tackles (306 solo), one sack, 31 passes defensed, 15 interceptions and three touchdowns during his career.

Johnson missed each of the Titans' last two games with a neck injury. Now back at practice -- and participating without limitation -- he appears set to play this weekend against the Packers.
Johnson (neck) is currently expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Packers, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Johnson has been sidelined the previous two weeks as he has dealt with a neck injury. The team appears optimistic regarding a potential return Sunday. Daimion Stafford would presumably be in line for another start at free safety if Johnson experiences any setbacks.

Johnson figures to be replaced in the starting lineup at free safety by Kevin Byard, with Johnson's next opportunity to return coming in Week 10 versus the Packers.

Johnson practiced in full Wednesday, so there is little reason to believe that he will not be available for Week 9's matchup against the Chargers. Keep an eye on his status as the week rolls on.

Johnson (neck) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.
Johnson wasn't able to practice throughout the week due to the neck issue, and therefore will be unable to play in the Titans' Week 8 matchup. Kevin Byard figures to get the start at free safety in Johnson's absence.
Johnson has signed a one-year deal with the Titans, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.
Despite missing two games last year due to an ankle injury, Johnson put up solid numbers at safety for the Cardinals, amassing 61 tackles (50 solo) and five interceptions. With the Cardinals appearing disinterested in re-signing their safety during the offseason due to age concerns, the 30-year-old safety will likely battle with former fourth-round pick Marqueston Huff for the starting free safety spot in what amounts to a "prove-it" type deal.
Johnson is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Sidelined in Weeks 15 and 16 due to an ankle injury, Johnson still amassed 61 tackles (50 solo), five interceptions, and one fumble recovery during the regular season. In his return in the season finale, he received just 39 of 72 defensive snaps, but the Cardinals' bye week allowed the safety to log every one of those snaps in their two playoff tilts. Johnson has called the Arizona desert his home since he was drafted in 2009. However, his age (30) may cause the front office to balk in contract negotiations in favor of fresher legs.
Johnson managed three tackles (two solo) during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
Making his first appearance since Week 14, Johnson logged only 39 of 72 defensive snaps, which suggests that he may still be tending to an injured ankle. The Cardinals have a bye week at their disposal to recover before taking the field in the divisional round on Jan. 16. At that point, Johnson should be able to handle a full workload at strong safety, though newcomer D.J. Swearinger will be around to fill in any cracks on the back end of the defense.

Johnson has come full circle from the ankle injury suffered in Week 14, meaning he'll likely take over his normal spot in the starting lineup at strong safety.

Coach Bruce Arians suggested that the chances are good that Johnson -- who practiced in a limited fashion Friday -- will suit up this weekend, but in such scenario, it's unclear how much playing time the safety would be in line for in the Cardinals' season finale.

Absent for the second game in a row, Johnson will join Tyrann Mathieu (torn ACL) on the sideline. The Cardinals will certainly trot out Tony Jefferson in one of the starting safety spots, but the other one may be a patchwork effort, as Deone Bucannon has been working at inside linebacker for much of the season.

Johnson practiced Friday for the first time since Dec. 9, giving him a chance to return to action Sunday after sitting out last week's victory over the Eagles.
Head coach Bruce Arians expects Johnson (ankle) to return to practice Wednesday, the Arizona Republic reports.
Johnson hasn't stepped on the practice field for almost two weeks as he tended to an ankle injury, leaving Tony Jefferson to man strong safety Sunday at Philadelphia. The secondary suffered a blow, though, with Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL. Johnson's activity level Wednesday will set the tone for Week 16, and if ready to suit up, he should serve next to Jefferson at safety.

Johnson has been tending to an ankle injury for nearly two weeks, and despite taking the field in the Cardinals' last game on Thursday, Dec. 10, he was unable to practice in the meantime. The absence will require a reshuffle of the secondary, though Tony Jefferson will log almost every snap at strong safety rather than his season-long mark of 65 percent.
Johnson (ankle) will be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's contest versus the Eagles.
Johnson did not practice this week, but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game. While his ultimate status won't be determined until prior to Sunday's 8:30 ET kickoff, Johnson's 58 tackles and five interceptions certainly make him valuable to IDP owners. If Johnson is unable to play, Tony Jefferson would figure to fill his vacant strong safety position.
Johnson (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Despite dealing with an ankle injury last week, he made at least a limited showing in each practice leading up to Thursday's game against the Vikings. An absence to kick off Week 15 prep could be a precautionary measure, but he'll have chances Thursday and Friday to prove his health.

Johnson is among a group of five defensive backs with five interceptions on the season, which is two behind the NFL's leader, Reggie Nelson. With Teddy Bridgewater helming an Adrian Peterson-dominant offense, Johnson may have to wait another week to augment his current pick total.
