It's positive to know that the Jets were prepared to get rid of a player Adam Gase has obviously been high on. He made a bunch of mistakes on Thursday night, some of which put Sam Darnold in jeopardy.
We'll have a scouting report on Johnson for you within the next few days. Hopefully he'll be a clear upgrade.
As noted, the Jets signed Mike White back to the practice squad too. This is a logical move, especially with Darnold's status uncertain for Sunday.
