Chiefs Sign Veteran S Jeron Johnson

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Chiefs are signing veteran S Jeron Johnson to a contract on Friday.

Rapoport mentions that with franchise S Eric Berry skipping training camp, the Chiefs wanted to bolster their depth at the position.

Johnson was clearly on their radar, as they brought him in for a workout back in March.

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.

However, 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.
