FA DB Lonnie Johnson Jr. is signing a one-year deal with the #Saints, sources tell @theScore.
In seven starts for the #Texans in 2021, Johnson had 3 INTs and 6 PBUs. The versatile CB/Safety is a former 2nd-round pick, who I’m told had three different suitors in free agency. pic.twitter.com/gdmrKu0CqY

The defensive back was a second round pick of the Texans in 2019 and played three season in Houston. Last year, he was with Titans but injuries limited his defensive and special teams snaps.
Johnson has seen time at free safety and cornerback in his NFL career.
