Professional career[edit]

Seattle Seahawks[edit]

Johnson was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent following the end of the 2011 NFL lockout.[1] He made the 53-man active roster as a reserve safety behind Kam Chancellor.[2]

The Seahawks placed him on injured reserve on December 11, 2013, causing him to miss the last three games of the regular, as well as, the team's win in Super Bowl XLVIII.[3]

On March 7, 2014, Johnson re-signed with the Seahawks on a one-year contract.[4]

Washington Redskins[edit]

On March 16, 2015, Johnson signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Washington Redskins.[5] By the end of training camp, he was beat out of the starting strong safety position by Duke Ihenacho.[6] In the Week 6 game against the New York Jets, he blocked a punt in the endzone, which was recovered by wide receiver Rashad Ross for a touchdown.[7][8]
