Kansas City is still without star safety Eric Berry as they wait for him to ink his one-year franchise tender. At minimum, Johnson can give the Chiefs an extra safety in practice as they wait for Berry to report.

After serving as a backup DB and a special-teamer for several years in Seattle, Johnson signed with Washington last year and appeared poised to get the opportunity to player more. However, things didn’t work out in D.C., and Johnson was cut earlier this month.

Johnson visited the Chiefs in late March, but left without a deal. Now, he’ll get his chance to make the team. For a look at the Chiefs’ safety depth chart, check out their page on Roster Resource.
