This is the first reported interest in Johnson since he became available just a few days before the start of free agency.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Johnson to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.
Johnson, 27, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State back in 2011. He spent four years in Seattle before signing a two-year, $2.5 million with the Redskins last year.
Washington elected to cut him loose in a move that freed up $1,068,750 in available cap space.
In 2015, Johnson appeared in 14 games and recorded 27 tackles. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 195 total snaps last year.
