The Detroit Lions added some depth at linebacker on Friday when they signed Landon Johnson to a one-year contract, according to his agent Andy Simms.
Johnson figures to be an upgrade for the Lions on a special teams unit that was horrendous last season. He primarily played that role last season for the Carolina Panthers.
He was originally a third-round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2004. He was a four-year starter for the Bengals but played in a backup role after signing in Carolina in 2008. The Lions have been seeking help on special teams.
