Johnson signed a two-year contract with the Giants on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants could look to address their quarterback depth in the 2017 NFL Draft, but as things currently stand, Johnson looks in line to serve as Eli Manning's top backup. The 30-year-old Johnson brings a mobility to the position that Manning lacks, but he hasn't logged a snap in a regular-season game since the 2013 season. Fortunately for the Giants, Manning is about as durable as it gets, so Johnson's lack of reps the last few seasons shouldn't be a major issue.

Johnson will serve as the backup to starter Eli Manning on Sunday against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.TV reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will move up the depth chart in the absence of Ryan Nassib, who is inactive Sunday due to elbow soreness. The 30-year-old has yet to take a snap this season, and hasn't completed a pass in the NFL since the 2011 season with Tampa Bay.

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 matchup versus the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backup is expected to carry this same status the majority of the season, barring injury to either Eli Manning or top backup Ryan Nassib.

Johnson signed with the Giants on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson, who was released by the Ravens this weekend, will provide a veteran presence at quarterback behind Eli Manning and young backup Ryan Nassib. Barring any extraordinary circumstance, Johnson likely won't see the field in 2016, but he gives the team some needed insurance at the position.

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.
