Johnson posted two catches for 21 yards and no touchdowns in three games with Seattle last season. In the postseason, he added three receptions for 39 yards in Seattle’s Wild-Card game loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Johnson signed with the Seahawks in 2021 as an undrafted free agent out of South Dakota State. He signed a reserve/future contract with the team in January.
