The Detroit Lions announced Saturday that they’ve signed DT Toby Johnson to their practice squad.
Johnson, 26, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia back in May of 2015. He was waived coming out of the preseason and had brief stints with the Jaguars and Bears before joining the Vikings towards the end of the season.
Minnesota elected to bring Johnson back on a futures deal in 2016 and he was on and off of their practice squad during the season. The Vikings cut him loose back in May and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Panthers.
Unfortunately, Carolina waived Johnson coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Johnson appeared in two games for the Vikings and recorded two tackles.
