The Texans will reportedly also take on all of Johnson’s salary because... sure, why not?
After losing the starting job to Kenyan Drake, it was only a matter of time before Arizona shipped Johnson somewhere.
Despite playing in 13 games last season, Johnson finished with only 715 yards from scrimmage for six touchdowns.
