With EJ Manuel inactive for Thursday's game at the Jets, Johnson will serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor.

EDGE Analysis

We're not sure if the Bills are just about done with Manuel and his inconsistent play or if Johnson - signed as a free agent a month ago - has started showing enough in practices that the Bills decided to make a change in the pecking order. For now, if your league goes deep enough to where backup quarterbacks matter, Johnson looks like the direct insurance behind the surprisingly capable Taylor.

Johnson agreed to a contract with the Bills on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the last two weeks as quarterback insurance for the Colts, Johnson will head to Buffalo to do the same. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ankle) is banged up and uncertain to play this week, and if he is unable to go, EJ Manuel would start for the Bills and Johnson would serve as Manual's backup.

Johnson has been released by the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has been conditionally employed by the Colts over the past two weeks, and upon his latest release from the team, Indianapolis is left with their usual duo of Andrew Luck (shoulder) and Matt Hasselbeck at the quarterback position.

The Colts have re-signed Johnson, the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts released him after this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars, but with Matt Hasselbeck under the weather and Andrew Luck continuing to deal with a shoulder issue, Johnson was brought back in to give the team QB insurance in advance of Thursday's game against the Texans.

Johnson has been released by the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson was only on the Colts' active roster for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Upon him being released, only two quarterbacks remain on the Colts' depth chart, suggesting Andrew Luck (shoulder) stands a favorable chance of being available for Thursday's game versus the Texans.

Johnson was signed to the Colts' active roster Friday, Kevin Bowen of colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Andrew Luck (shoulder) a legitimate question mark for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Johnson was brought in as an insurance policy should Matt Hasselbeck go down with an injury of his own. The 29-year-old quarterback has played in 29 career games and has started just five of them during his time with the Buccaneers, Browns and Bengals.

Johnson will work out for the Cowboys on Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will be joined by Matt Flynn and Christian Ponder. The team hasn't yet decided who Brandon Weeden's backup will be while Tony Romo (broken collarbone) is out, but if none of the veterans impress them, Kellen Moore could also be activated from the practice squad.

Johnson was released by the Jets on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Geno Smith (jaw) out for at least the first few weeks of the season, Matt Flynn will serve as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup, after beating out Johnson for the job.

Johnson signed with the Jets Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will join a crowded quarterback field with the Jets, who currently have Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith, Matt Flynn and Bryce Petty. With Smith (jaw) and Flynn (ankle) missing time, Johnson is likely on the team to add some veteran depth.

The Bengals have signed Johnson, the team's official site reports.

Johnson (who was with Cincinnati in 2013) rejoins the Bengals' backup QB mix behind starter Andy Dalton, but we suspect that he slots behind A.J. McCarron on that front at this stage.
