The New England Patriots announced that they have signed DB Leonard Johnson. In addition, the Patriots signed LB Eric Martin to the practice squad.
Johnson, 25, was released from Tampa Bay’s injured reserve list on Dec. 3, 2015. The 5-foot-10, 202-pounder, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Tampa Bay out of Iowa State in 2012.
He has played in 48 NFL games with 17 starts and has registered 139 total tackles, five interceptions for 128 yards with two touchdowns, 20 passes defended, four forced fumbles, on fumble recovery and nine special teams tackles.
Martin on the other hand is back again. He is a guy that bounces back and forth week to week.
