The Washington Redskins have bid adieu to backup cornerback D.J. Johnson for the second time in as many seasons.
The 27-year-old journeyman from Jackson State was cut by the team on Tuesday, appearing on a daily transaction report distributed by the league.
Washington first signed Johnson off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad in 2011. He was released three weeks later.
Following short stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts, Johnson was re-signed to the Redskins practice squad this past October.
He was activated to the 53-man roster on Nov. 6 and appeared in seven games, notching eight tackles along the way.
An ankle injury landed Johnson on season-ending injured reserve prior to the postseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks.
