WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

Josh Johnson is signing with the Broncos.

Johnson should step in as the backup to Russell Wilson barring another move, and it’d be nice to see him solidified in Denver after bouncing around to so many teams throughout his career. The veteran played well in a start last season for the Ravens.

The Ravens are signing Josh Johnson.

Johnson was on the Jets practice squad and saw action for them this season, but Baltimore is adding him to the active roster with Lamar Jackson (ankle) hurting. Johnson is a veteran with experience, so he's as strong fit in case he's thrust into action for the Ravens.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Jets released Josh Johnson.

Johnson probably joined the Jets too late to have a good chance at making the final roster as a backup quarterback. But the veteran always seems to find a way to contribute to a team, and he should be picked up soon if he wants to continue his playing career.

The Jets are signing Josh Johnson.

Johnson was released by the 49ers in June, but he's found a new landing spot with New York having a very wide open depth chart at quarterback. While the veteran has only made eight career starts, he's been around since 2009 and will bring a stable presence for No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson to learn from.

The 49ers have released Josh Johnson.

San Francisco has Josh Rosen and Nate Sudfeld behind Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, so they are pretty well set at quarterback heading into the summer. Johnson turned 35 last month and will hope to get another shot elsewhere ahead of training camp.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The 49ers signed Josh Johnson to their practice squad.

Johnson is a mobile quarterback that can give San Francisco good looks in practice ahead of upcoming matchups against Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, and Russell Wilson. The 49ers seem to feel good about both Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard, so Johnson would probably need an injury to eventually make starts.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Lions are releasing Josh Johnson, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Detroit had three quarterbacks on the roster, but they will now go with just David Blough behind Matthew Stafford. Johnson should resurface soon, especially with all the injuries at quarterback through two weeks.

Josh Johnson is signing with the Lions, according to Mike Garafolo.

Johnson had a chance to sign with the Ravens recently, but he decided to wait for a better opportunity, and it looks like he got it in Detroit—where he should be considered the favorite to backup Matthew Stafford. The veteran provided solid play for the Redskins at the end of last season.

Josh Johnson can't get much going in Week 17.

Johnson was 12/27 for 91 yards and one interception along with three carries for four yards against the Eagles, who did an excellent job against the mobile quarterback in a shutout win. Johnson didn't put up big numbers for the Redskins with a 3:4 TD/INT riot in four games, but he did an admirably job filling in and helping the team compete down the stretch. Johnson is now set to play in the AAF football league, but NFL teams might be interested in him too.

Josh Johnson throws one touchdown in Redskins' Week 16 loss.

Johnson was 13/23 for 153 yards, one touchdown, and one interception along with four carries for 22 yards in the Saturday afternoon loss to the Titans. While the numbers aren't exceptional, Johnson played another strong game and played a lot better than the numbers indicate. The veteran quarterback showed poise throughout the game, making nice plays to keep drives going. The touchdown was in the second quarter on a seven-yard swing pass to Michael Floyd. And the interceptions weren't really on him, as they both came at the end of the game; the first one was on a third-down pass down the field where Josh Doctson stopped running his route; and the second was on a last-second pass attempt down the field that was returned for a pick-six. Johnson finishes up the regular season next Sunday against the Eagles.

Josh Johnson, Redskins keep playoff hopes alive with 16-13 victory over the Jaguars.

Johnson was 16/25 for 151 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions, also adding nine carries for 49 yards. The Redskins were down 13-6 entering the fourth quarter, but Johnson led a ten-play, 68-yard touchdown drive to tie things up, and then another eight-play drive to set up Dustin Hopkins' game-winning field goal as time expired. Washington is not 7-7 and could potentially sneak into the postseason with wins over Tennessee and Philadelphia over the next two weeks. Johnson will use his legs next Saturday against the Titans, but he won't be a strong option in two-quarterback leagues.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

Josh Johnson comes in relief of Mark Sanchez in 40-16 loss.

Johnson was 11/16 for 195 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, also adding seven carries for 45 yards and another score. The Redskins are going to stick with Johnson in Week 15 against the Jaguars, but it's obviously not a great spot to consider using the veteran, though his mobility should hopefully give Washington's offense a chance.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Redskins officially signed quarterback Josh Johnson.

Washington wanted someone with at least some familiarity with the coaching staff, and Johnson was with Jay Gruden in Tampa Bay in 2008. Johnson was set to play for the newly-established Alliance of American Football league, but he was released from his contract and has been allowed to sign back in the NFL. Johnson will backup Mark Sanchez, so he's obviously not a fantasy option.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Raiders cut Josh Johnson, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

The veteran quarterback was signed earlier this offseason by the Raiders, but the team is going with E.J. Manuel and Connor Cook behind Derek Carr for now. Given Johnson's history with Jon Gruden, it's possible he's brought back into the mix at some point.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Raiders signed quarterback Josh Johnson.

Johnson is a veteran quarterback that Jon Gruden actually drafted when he was with Tampa Bay in 2008. It's cool to see, and a good sign for him as a player, that Gruden likes him enough to want him on his team again ten years later. He'll probably compete with Connor Cook for the backup job behind Derek Carr.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Texans released quarterback Josh Johnson.

Houston had to make room for the recently-claimed Andre Ellington. There might be a chance the Texans bring him back, but other teams will be interested at some point if not.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Texans signed quarterback Josh Johnson.

Johnson was last with the Giants, and the Texans are bringing him in as the third guy behind Tom Savage and T.J. Yates. Johnson does have a lot of athleticism and could be someone the Texans go to if they need an eventual spark on offense.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

The Giants have waived quarterback Josh Johnson, according to Ian Rapoport.

This means Geno Smith has won the Giants' backup quarterback job. Johnson shouldn't take long to resurface as a backup on someone else's roster.

Josh Johnson plays great in Giants' final preseason game.

Johnson did well to match Geno Smith, who went 10/11 for 111 yards and a touchdown, by going 11/14 for 135 yards and a touchdown. The problem is the Giants probably won't be keeping four quarterbacks, which might leave Johnson as the odd man out with the Giants. Final cuts are Saturday at 4:00 PM ET, and Johnson likely wouldn't have much trouble finding another team if he is released.

Josh Johnson | Broncos QB

Josh Johnson starts first preseason game for the Giants.

Johnson drew the start over Geno Smith with Eli Manning not playing, and he went 5/10 for 31 yards against the Steelers. It's probably going to be a battle between Johnson and Smith for the backup job (and a roster spot) behind Eli Manning. Smith threw an interception, but was able to do more than Johnson besides that. Still, look for Johnson to remain the number two heading into the second preseason game in two Mondays against Cleveland.

Quarterback Josh Johnson is signing with the Giants, according to his agent Doug Hendrickson.

It's a two-year deal. Johnson will likely back up Eli Manning in New York.
