Johnson, 28, was taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Cardinals. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.992 million contract when he agreed to a three-year, $39 million extension worth up to $45 million.

The Cardinals traded Johnson to the Texans this offseason as part of the DeAndre Hopkins deal. 

Johnson stands to make base salaries of $10,200,000 and $7,950,000 over the final two years of the deal.

In 2020, Johnson has appeared in eight games for the Texans and rushed for 408 yards on 103 carries (4 YPC) to go along with 16 receptions for 161 yards receiving and four total touchdowns.
