Before playing for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL), Josh Johnson played for the Buccaneers, Washington Redskins, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Buccaneers.
Johnson was also a track and field, basketball, and football letterwinner at Oakland Technical High School. As a senior in football, he was selected to the first team of the City and was named the team’s Most Improved Player. He also helped his club win the Oakland Athletic League title. He was also Marshawn Lynch’s cousin’s teammate.
Johnson attended a modest school, but he was chosen by several teams. He benefited from his outstanding performances at the NFL Combine, where he set the fastest 40-yard sprint speed and highest vertical leap of any quarterback in 2008.
In the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected him with the 160th overall choice (pick 25). He was a typical journeyman quarterback who spent his career playing for 15 different NFL teams.
Johnson was signed by the Baltimore Ravens off of the Jets’ practice squad on December 15, 2021. When Tyler Huntley tested positive for COVID-19 in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals and Lamar Jackson had an ankle injury, he was compelled to start.
The Ravens lost the game 21-41 despite him going 28 for 40 for 304 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception while also rushing for 10 yards. Johnson inked a contract with the Denver Broncos on March 18, 2022.
On August 30, 2022, he was discharged, and the following day, he was added to the practice squad. Johnson was added to the team’s active roster on October 22, 2022, as a result of an injury to starting quarterback Russell Wilson.
