Johnson, now 33 years old, was named a CFL East All-Star in 2015 and was a serviceable weapon in the Alouettes' secondary last season, recording 59 tackles, six sacks, and three interceptions.

Over the course of 11 seasons, Johnson has suited up for the Roughriders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Ottawa RedBlacks, and Alouettes.
