CB Danny Johnson re-signs with Washington

Danny back!

NFL: Washington Football Team at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Football Team declined the option to tender RFA CB Danny Johnson before free agency started. Johnson has been a depth player in the secondary, but a much bigger help on special teams. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2018.

Danny Johnson was allowed to test the waters in free agency, but will now return to Washington on a 1-year deal. If he had received the lowest tender(original round), the team would have had the right of first refusal if another team tried to sign him. He would have returned on a 1-year deal worth $2.13 million like WR Cam Sims. Johnson will likely be given a minimum contract, or slightly above to return home.
