Seattle Seahawks Sign Former Bills Safety Brett Johnson

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Bills safety Brett Johnson, according to Sports Radio 950's Curtis Crabtree. Johnson, 24, attended Cal and will enter his second season in the league.

Johnson played four years at Cal, working his way up from a special teams player to starting safety by his junior year. He started in 22 of his 49 games at Cal, and racked up 107 tackles during that time. Johnson also caught three interceptions for 64 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown.

Johnson went undrafted in 2010 but did get signed by the St. Louis Rams prior to their second practice. The Rams released Johnson on Sept. 3rd prior to the start of the regular season, but he found a home with the Buffalo Bills on their practice squad a few months later.

Johnson spent three weeks with the Bills until his contract ended. The Bills chose not to extend his contract, and Johnson parted ways with the team. He will now get a chance with the Seahawks as they prepare for the 2011 season.
