Titans Reach Deal With Veteran CB Kevin Johnson


NASHVILLE – The Titans have agreed to terms on a deal with defensive back Kevin Johnson.

Johnson, a first-round pick (16th overall) of the Houston Texans in the 2015 NFL Draft, will add more competition while competing for a spot in a new-look secondary.

Johnson has worked a good deal in the slot in the NFL.

In his six-year NFL career with the Texans (2015-2018), Bills (2019) and Browns (2020), Johnson has played in 65 games, with 25 starts. He has recorded 188 tackles with an interception and 22 passes defensed, along with a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

Johnson (6-0, 185) worked primarily in the slot last season while playing in 13 games, with six starts, for the Browns. He recorded 34 tackles with three passes defense, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a half-sack.

In four seasons with the Texans, Johnson totaled 128 tackles, 14 passes defensed and an interception. In 2019 with the Bills, Johnson started one game and saw action in every game for the first time since his rookie season with the Texans. He also started Buffalo's lone playoff game in the AFC Wild Card in 2019, when he tallied 23 tackles, five passes defensed and his first career sack during the regular season.

During his collegiate career at Wake Forest, Johnson appeared in 47 games with 41 starts and recorded 191 tackles, seven interceptions and 35 pass breakups.
