Sticks in Seattle after 2022 season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-16

Johnson signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Johnson was elevated from the practice squad for the fourth time this season ahead of Saturday's loss to San Francisco in the wild-card round. The 24-year-old, who stepped up as Seattle's de-facto No. 3 wideout over the final three games with Marquise Godwin (shoulder) out, snagged all three of his targets for a season-high 39 yards during this playoff tilt. He then reverted to the practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log, and he'll now ink his second reserve/future contract with the Seahawks in as many seasons. This productive showing to end the year should give Johnson a solid base to build on heading into the 2023 campaign.

Three grabs in wild-card loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-14

Johnson caught all three of his targets for 39 yards in Saturday's 41-23 wild-card loss to the 49ers.

The undrafted rookie out of South Dakota State emerged as Seattle's No. 3 wideout late in the regular season after Marquise Goodwin (shoulder) got hurt, and Johnson wound up posting the best numbers of his career in his playoff debut, even if his production was modest. The Seahawks have some questions to answer in the offseason regarding their offense, starting with whether to bring back Geno Smith at quarterback, but no matter who's under center there won't likely be much volume available in the passing game behind the top duo of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Elevated for wild-card matchup

Seattle elevated Johnson to the active roster from the practice squad Friday for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Johnson has been elevated for a third straight week. Over his previous two appearances, he totaled two receptions on four targets for 21 yards across 54 offensive snaps. He figures to garner a similar role during the playoff matchup against San Francisco.

Moves back to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-09

Johnson reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Johnson was elevated from the practice squad for the second week in a row ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale win against the Rams. The 5-foot-10 receiver wound up playing the most significant role of his young career, as his 29 offensive snaps ranked third on the team behind DK Metcalf (58) and Tyler Lockett (55) but ahead of Dareke Young (17) and Laquon Treadwell (five). Johnson also finished with Seattle's fourth-most receiving yards (21) while hauling both of his targets Week 18, so he may have earned himself an active roster spot heading into Saturday's wild-card tilt against the 49ers.

Snares two passes

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-09

Johnson caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win versus the Rams.

This was Johnson's third game of the season, and he managed to work as the No. 3 receiver behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, logging a 41 percent snap share and hauling in his first passes of the year. It's unclear if he'll be used the same way during the playoffs, but Marquise Goodwin (shoulder) will miss at least two more games. Thus, the No. 3 role remains up for grabs heading into Saturday's matchup versus the 49ers.

Moved up to active roster Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-07

The Seahawks elevated Johnson from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Johnson will be elevated from the practice for the third time this season and the second game in a row. The 24-year-old wideout did not haul in either of his two targets while playing 25 offensive snaps against the Jets in Week 17, though it's possible he could once again see some significant playing time with Tyler Lockett nursing a shin injury heading into the regular-season finale. Should Lockett be ruled inactive 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:25 pm E.T. kickoff, then Johnson should compete with Laquon Treadwell, Dareke Young and Penny Hart for targets behind No. 1 wideout DK Metcalf.

Sent back to practice squad

Johnson reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Johnson saw two targets in Sunday's win over the Jets, but he failed to cash in on either opportunity. He saw 26 snaps on offensive, which was the fourth most of the team's receiver corps, while Tyler Lockett dealt with a leg injury that limited him to just 23.

Elevated to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2022-12-31

Johnson was elevated from the Seahawks' practice squad to their active roster Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Johnson was previously elevated ahead of the Week 8 win over the Giants, but he saw only one offensive snap in that contest. His elevation comes on the same day Marquise Goodwin (shoulder) was placed on IR, so it's likely Johnson will be active next week as well. That said, Tyler Lockett (hand) has indicated that he expects to play against the Jets on Sunday, which would decrease the likelihood of Johnson seeing significant snaps on offense.
