Redskins SS Jeron Johnson "has fallen out of favor" with the coaching staff.
Johnson was signed as a free agent away from the Seahawks in March and was expected to be the starting strong safety. Duke Ihenacho later beat him out for the job, and after Ihenacho's season-ending broken wrist in Week 1, Johnson still isn't expected to see the field. Trenton Robinson will likely get the start.

Jeron Johnson is expected to emerge as the Redskins' starting strong safety.

Johnson has rotated with Duke Ihenacho during OTAs, but remains the likeliest option to start at strong safety. Johnson could be an IDP sleeper this year in Washington's back end. He is a hard-hitting former special teamer.

Redskins signed S Jeron Johnson, formerly of the Seahawks, to a two-year, $4 million contract.

The Redskins turned to Johnson after missing out on Ron Parker and Marcus Gilchrist. Johnson is a bit of an unknown after backing up Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas the past two seasons in Seattle, but will compete for a starting job in Washington. Ryan Clark has retired, while the Redskins wisely let Brandon Meriweather walk in free agency. Johnson's familiarity with GM Scot McCloughan, who came from the Seahawks' front office, likely played a role in his decision.

Free agent S Jeron Johnson will visit the Redskins.

New Skins GM Scot McCloughan should have a good read on Johnson after spending a few years in Seattle's front office. Johnson is primarily a special teamer, but Washington may envision him as having the ability to do more.

Seahawks S Jeron Johnson has agreed to restructure his contract.

Johnson was slapped with a second-round tender as a restricted free agent last month. He quickly signed the deal and would have been set up to earn a $2.187 million salary. Johnson's new deal can earn him "up to" $2 million on a one-year pact. He doesn't play much defense but is a special teams stalwart.

Seahawks re-signed S Jeron Johnson to a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old former Boise State star was reported to have been tendered at the second-round level. If he signed that tender, Johnson will be owed $1.431 million. Johnson is used sparingly on defense, but contributed three special teams tackles last season. The Seahawks apparently believe he has potential to contribute in the secondary, based on his relatively pricey tender cost.

Seahawks extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent S Jeron Johnson.

The second-round tender is worth $2.187 million, and means Seattle would receive a second-round pick if it declined to match an offer sheet. Johnson was a special teamer in 2013, playing only 29 snaps on defense. The second-round tender ensures he'll be back in Seattle.

Seahawks placed S Jeron Johnson on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Johnson re-injured his hamstring Sunday against the 49ers. The special teams player recorded six tackles in seven games. He'll be an RFA in March.
