Johnson, 28, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State back in 2011. He spent four years in Seattle before signing a two-year, $2.5 million with the Redskins last year.

However, Washington elected to cut him loose back in March. Johnson later signed on with the Chiefs in August but was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

He has worked out for the Bills, Ravens, and Giants since becoming a free agent.

In 2015, Johnson appeared in 14 games and recorded 27 tackles. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 195 total snaps last year.

Williams, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bills back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.630 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $675,000 this season before being waived in recent weeks.

Buffalo, unfortunately, decided to cut him to make room for S James Ihedigbo on their active roster.

In 2016, Williams has appeared in nine games and recorded four tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
