Bills Release DB Dontae Johnson


The Buffalo Bills officially released DB Dontae Johnson on Tuesday.

Johnson, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,620,544 contract with the 49ers before signing on with the Seahawks this offseason.

Johnson also met with the Vikings during free agency, but ultimately agreed to a deal with Seattle.

The Seahawks placed Johnson on injured reserve with a groin strain at the start of the regular season before releasing him last month. He signed on with the Bills soon after.

In 2017, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 77 tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown and seven pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 118 cornerback out of 120 qualifying players.
