The Houston Texans have declared WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR DeAndrew White, OT Jeff Allen, RB Jordan Todman, QB Josh Johnson, OL Kendall Lamm, DE LaTroy Lewis inactive for Week 17.

  Texans | Josh Johnson back with Houston    Wed Dec 27, 12:34 PM

The Houston Texans re-signed QB Josh Johnson on Wednesday, Dec. 27. S Corey Moore (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Both Texans quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Taylor Heinicke missed time in Week 16 getting examined for concussions. Yates came back in the game, but Heinicke was diagnosed with a concussion and did not return. Johnson was with the Texans for a couple of weeks back in November and now he's back in Houston to give the team depth at the position behind Yates.

  Texans | Josh Johnon released    Tue Nov 21, 05:41 PM

Houston Texans QB Josh Johnson was released Tuesday, Nov. 21, according to Johnson's agent.

  Texans | Houston signs Josh Johnson    Tue Nov 7, 04:03 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Giants) was signed by the Houston Texans Tuesday, Nov. 7, according to a source. QB Matt McGloin was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: McGloin looked good in college at Penn State under Texans coach Bill O'Brien, but he's not been a fit in the pro game...with or without O'Brien. Johnson has bounced around to several teams during his pro career, but he's an athletic passer with some regular season experience.

  Colts | Indy works out four quarterbacks    Tue Oct 31, 12:18 PM

Free-agent QBs Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, Josh Johnson and Connor Shaw worked out for the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: It's not a good sign for Andrew Luck's recovery if the team is looking at free agent QBs. Luck has already been declared out for Week 9 and there continues to be a growing possibility that we don't see him at all in 2017.

New York Giants QB Josh Johnson will be the starting quarterback in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: No need to get Eli Manning out there. Johnson is competing to be the primary backup behind Manning, and his competition is the likes of rookie Davis Webb and veteran Geno Smith.

Footballguys view: Perkins is just a developmental back at this point, behind Orleans Darkwa in the pecking order. Rashad Jennings is the clear lead back heading into the season opener.

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Ravens) signed an undisclosed deal Monday, Sept. 5, with the New York Giants. LB Jasper Brinkley was released.

  Ravens | Josh Johnson to Ravens    Mon May 16, 11:16 AM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Bills) signed with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, May 16, on an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Johnson is a bit of an odd fit at backup QB for the Ravens. Like former Ravens QB Tyrod Taylor, Johnson is an athletic passer who can make plays on the run. Johnson has been a journeyman for years in the NFL, and he's likely just a camp arm for the Ravens.

Footballguys view: Karlos Williams will start at RB with no McCoy, but Mike Gilleslee should also see a lot of work and rookie Nick O'Leary will see a lot of work at tight end with Clay out.

  Bills | EJ Manuel to remain backup in Buffalo    Fri Nov 13, 08:55 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said QB EJ Manuel is still the team's second-string quarterback, even though he was inactive for Week 10's game against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: According to Ryan, QB Josh Johnson served as the backup to QB Tyrod Taylor because the Bills had a short week to prepare for the game and Johnson had a better grasp of the game plan as a result of being able to spend more time with offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

  Jets | Ryan Mallett not an option for Jets    Mon Nov 2, 01:10 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Mallett (Texans) will not be an option for the New York Jets as they look to add another quarterback.

Footballguys view: Mallett is not a good option for any team...no matter how desperate the situation. We'd be shocked if he gets added by any team anytime soon. Buffalo Bills QB Josh Johnson might make some sense if he becomes available, since he has a working knowledge of the playbook.

  Bills | Unlikely to sign Ryan Mallett    Wed Oct 28, 12:32 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Mallett (Texans) could have a suitor in the Buffalo Bills, but it's unlikely that they'd sign him. QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is expected to be back after the bye week, and Buffalo isn't believed to be looking to replace QB EJ Manuel. Also, QB Josh Johnson is another option for the Bills, and he has knowledge of offensive coordinator Greg Roman's system.

Footballguys view: After his antics in Houston, it's clear Mallett has some growing up to do and may struggle to find a new home. Certainly his 'me-first' attitude is not something Rex Ryan needs in Buffalo, something even super-over confident Ryan can see.

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Jets) is one of the quarterbacks that will be working out for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have also reached out to free-agent QB Jason Campbell (Bengals), but it appears he will remain retired at the moment.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys need a backup behind Brandon Weeden while Tony Romo is out. Johnson has good athleticism, but accuracy as a passer has always been a problem for him.
