Los Angeles was down to three healthy corners on the roster, so Johnson provides some immediate help.
Johnson, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,620,544 contract with the 49ers before signing on with the Seahawks in 2018.
After brief stints with the Bills and Cardinals in 2018, Johnson signed on with the Chiefs this offseason. Kansas City released him in May and Johnson returned to the 49ers, only to be let go during final roster cuts.
In 2017, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 77 tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown and seven pass defenses.
