Washington Redskins Release CB D.J. Johnson

It seems as if the Washington Redskins aren't wasting time in getting the offseason underway.  The team announced today that it has waived cornerback Domonique "D.J." Johnson.

Washington signed the former Jackson State product to their practice squad in Week 8 of the regular season.  A rash of injuries and suspensions left the Redskins thin at the cornerback slot, and Johnson was promoted to the active roster in Week 10, replacing the suspended Cedric Griffin.  

Johnson played in just seven games, seeing the majority of action in the nickel package against Baltimore and Cleveland.  However, the Brown's targeted him several times, and D.J. fell victim to a pair of long touchdown throws and rarely saw the field after that.  He finished the season with eight tackles and no passes defended.  

Cornerback was a major concern for the Redskins in '12, and the team will most certainly look for an upgrade this offseason.
