The Cleveland Browns announced Saturday that they’ve officially signed CB Kevin Johnson to a one-year contract.
Johnson, 27, is a former first-round pick out of Wake Forest by the Texans in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $10.04 million rookie contract when the Texans picked up his fifth-year option in 2018.
Johnson was owed $9.1 million under his fifth-year option, but the Texans made the decision to release him last year and he eventually signed on with the Bills.
In 2019, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and recorded 34 tackles, one sack, and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 22 cornerback out of 113 qualifying players.
