Johnson was waived by the Giants on Sunday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.
Johnson missed time during training camp with a knee injury, which likely didn't help the Texas product's chances. The 25-year-old missed the 2022 campaign due to a torn Achilles, but he appeared in 12 contests with the team in 2021. He'll now seek a new opportunity elsewhere.

Johnson (knee) will practice Monday, Bob Brookover of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Johnson has been out of action since suffering a knee injury during a preseason loss to the Lions on Aug. 11. He'll now work to make the best of his remaining time to make the team's final 53-man roster, although the 25-year-old is likely facing an uphill battle to do so.
Johnson (knee) will be inactive for Friday's game against the Panthers, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Johnson injured his knee during last week's 21-16 loss to Detroit and will now sit out New York's second preseason tilt. The 25-year-old will now look to get healthy ahead of the team's preseason finale versus the Jets next Saturday.
Johnson has been declared out for the remainder of Friday's preseason game in Detroit due to a knee injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
According to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, Johnson was able to take a knee next to his wide receiver coach and did not appear to be in much distress, so there is reason for optimism going forward. He failed to bring in his only target prior to leaving the game. The 25-year-old is competing against a crowded receiver room for a depth role with the team this season.
Johnson (Achilles) was participating in the Giants' mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.
Johnson tore his Achilles last August, causing him to miss all of last season but is now back on the field. The 2019 fifth-round pick caught 11 passes for 105 yards for the Giants in 2021 and will now compete for a roster spot in what's become a crowded receiver room heading into the upcoming campaign
Johnson (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's resumed running on turf and expects to be ready to go for the start of the 2023 season, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Johnson had been an early standout during training camp this past summer and might have pushed for a top-three role in the Giants' wideout corps before sustaining a season-ending torn right Achilles' tendon in an Aug. 24 practice, getting surgery shortly thereafter. The wideout may not be able to achieve full medical clearance in advance of OTAs this spring, but if he continues to make positive progress in the months to come, he could be close to 100 percent for the start of 2023 training camp.
