The Broncos have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with linebacker Steven Johnson, according to the Denver Post's Mike Klis. Denver chose to sign Johnson rather than tendering him with a $1.542 million salary.
Details of Johnson's contract are unknown.
Update (1:02 p.m. MT): Johnson will have a $660,000 base salary this season, with a signing bonus, roster bonus, and playing incentives tacked on, according to Kils.
Underrated get by Broncos in re-signing LB/STer Steven Johnson. Quality locker room guy. Does what he's asked. Can play a little, too.— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 10, 2015
Johnson is expected to contribute on special teams in 2015 as a backup inside linebacker.
Johnson joined the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2012 out of Kansas. Injuries thrust him into Denver's starting lineup last season and he recorded 32 tackles and a half sack in seven starts.
