NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that safety Jeron Johnson has signed a two-year, $4 million contract with Washington. Johnson comes to the Redskins after four seasons as a reserve safety and special teams standout for the reigning NFC champions.
Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan knows Johnson well from his four-year run in Seattle's personnel department from 2010 to 2014.
Johnson made just one start in Seattle playing behind Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. Johnson's days as a reserve could come to an end in Washington with both Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather no longer in the picture.
