Johnson came up as a potential trade candidate for the Texans last year, so this isn’t a big surprise. 

Houston used the No. 3 overall pick on LSU CB Derek Stingley Jr, who figures to be a day-one starter for the Texans. 

Johnson, 24, was selected in the second round of the 2019 draft by the Texans. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $5,204,652 contract that included $2,536,775 guaranteed.

Johnson stands to make a base salary of $1,206,021 for the 2022 season.

In 2021, Johnson appeared in 14 games for the Texans and recorded 55 tackles, three interceptions and six pass deflections.
