At birth, Johnson weighed 15 pounds and 14 ounces, making him the largest baby ever born in the state of Louisiana.
Johnson played college football at Louisiana State University from 2004 to 2008. He finished his career starting 38 of 52 games for the Tigers and was a member of their 2007 national championship team.
Johnson was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. According to The Sporting News, Johnson was regarded as "somewhat of a 'tweener because he is almost too tall to play guard in most teams' schemes, but at the same time he lacks the athleticism to play tackle effectively in the NFL."
On September 3, 2010, Johnson was cut from the Arizona Cardinals in order to make the 53 man limit for the 2011 season. He was later placed on the team's practice squad.
He signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Bears on December 7, 2010. He was waived by Chicago on July 30, 2011.
