- Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported earlier in the day that the Redskins were working out Johnson.
Johnson, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Saints back in 2013. He spent just over a year in New Orleans before he was waived at the start of the season.
The Patriots later signed him to future/reserve contracts in each of the next two seasons before releasing him coming out of the preseason before adding him to their practice squad for a few days.
In 2015, Johnson appeared in one game for New England and recorded just one tackle.
