Johnson has signed a one-year deal with the Titans, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite missing two games last year due to an ankle injury, Johnson put up solid numbers at safety for the Cardinals, amassing 61 tackles (50 solo) and five interceptions. With the Cardinals appearing disinterested in re-signing their safety during the offseason due to age concerns, the 30-year-old safety will likely battle with former fourth-round pick Marqueston Huff for the starting free safety spot in what amounts to a "prove-it" type deal.

Johnson is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

EDGE Analysis

Sidelined in Weeks 15 and 16 due to an ankle injury, Johnson still amassed 61 tackles (50 solo), five interceptions, and one fumble recovery during the regular season. In his return in the season finale, he received just 39 of 72 defensive snaps, but the Cardinals' bye week allowed the safety to log every one of those snaps in their two playoff tilts. Johnson has called the Arizona desert his home since he was drafted in 2009. However, his age (30) may cause the front office to balk in contract negotiations in favor of fresher legs.

Johnson managed three tackles (two solo) during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first appearance since Week 14, Johnson logged only 39 of 72 defensive snaps, which suggests that he may still be tending to an injured ankle. The Cardinals have a bye week at their disposal to recover before taking the field in the divisional round on Jan. 16. At that point, Johnson should be able to handle a full workload at strong safety, though newcomer D.J. Swearinger will be around to fill in any cracks on the back end of the defense.

Johnson (ankle/illness) is listed as active Sunday versus the Seahawks, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has come full circle from the ankle injury suffered in Week 14, meaning he'll likely take over his normal spot in the starting lineup at strong safety.

Johnson (ankle/illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Bruce Arians suggested that the chances are good that Johnson -- who practiced in a limited fashion Friday -- will suit up this weekend, but in such scenario, it's unclear how much playing time the safety would be in line for in the Cardinals' season finale.

Johnson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Packers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Absent for the second game in a row, Johnson will join Tyrann Mathieu (torn ACL) on the sideline. The Cardinals will certainly trot out Tony Jefferson in one of the starting safety spots, but the other one may be a patchwork effort, as Deone Bucannon has been working at inside linebacker for much of the season.

Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson practiced Friday for the first time since Dec. 9, giving him a chance to return to action Sunday after sitting out last week's victory over the Eagles.

Head coach Bruce Arians expects Johnson (ankle) to return to practice Wednesday, the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson hasn't stepped on the practice field for almost two weeks as he tended to an ankle injury, leaving Tony Jefferson to man strong safety Sunday at Philadelphia. The secondary suffered a blow, though, with Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL. Johnson's activity level Wednesday will set the tone for Week 16, and if ready to suit up, he should serve next to Jefferson at safety.

Johnson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has been tending to an ankle injury for nearly two weeks, and despite taking the field in the Cardinals' last game on Thursday, Dec. 10, he was unable to practice in the meantime. The absence will require a reshuffle of the secondary, though Tony Jefferson will log almost every snap at strong safety rather than his season-long mark of 65 percent.

Johnson (ankle) will be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's contest versus the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson did not practice this week, but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game. While his ultimate status won't be determined until prior to Sunday's 8:30 ET kickoff, Johnson's 58 tackles and five interceptions certainly make him valuable to IDP owners. If Johnson is unable to play, Tony Jefferson would figure to fill his vacant strong safety position.
