Johnson was an undrafted free agent signed by the Commanders in 2018. He’s been in Washington since he was signed initially. Johnson recorded one interception, nine passes defended, and 29 total tackles last season.
The Commanders are locking in for a defense this offseason. The defense was an elite unit for the team last year. However, the offense couldn’t produce enough points to make the playoffs. We’ll see if Johnson can help the team make the playoffs in 2023.
