Johnson, 24, signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State following the 2019 NFL Draft. He signed a three-year $1.755 million contract but was waived coming out of the preseason.

Johnson signed to the Bills practice squad a few days later and had brief stints with the Texans and Panthers before signing with the Chargers’ practice squad in October of last year. 

Los Angeles re-signed him to a futures contract this offseason but was among their final roster cuts coming out of training camp. He signed to the Chargers’ practice squad shortly afterward. 

During his three-year college career, Johnson caught 80 passes for 1,288 yards and 12 touchdowns in 27 games.
