Johnson, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills back in 2014. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,283,732 contract and set to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season.
The Bills waived him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Buffalo cut him loose from injured reserve a few weeks later.
In 2015, Johnson appeared in 10 games for the Bills and recorded six tackles and a fumble recovery.
