Johnson, 23, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of LSU back in May of 2014. He lasted just over a year in Miami before he was waived and later signed to the Redskins’ practice squad at the start of the 2015 season.
The Redskins brought Johnson back on a future/reserve contract before cutting him loose shortly after this year’s draft. The Patriots signed him to a contract a few days later and he managed to make the 53-man roster but was unfortunately cut loose a few weeks into the season.
New England called him up to their active roster a few weeks ago before cutting him on Tuesday.
This season, Johnson has appeared in four games and recorded eight tackles and no sacks for the Patriots.
