Johnson was unable to claim a roster spot as a linebacker in the Saints' 3-4 defensive system, and is now a free agent after he was waived by the team in August.


Johnson will compete for a roster spot, and potentially a starting position, at outside linebacker with the Saints. Johnson, out of tiny Tarleton State, could hold decent fantasy value if he is able to secure a starting position.
