Johnson has four years of NFL experience. Most recently, he was released from the Chicago Bears on Aug. 11. He’s also been part of the Ravens, Browns, Cardinals and Chiefs.

After starting 50-straight games at Rutgers, Johnson was undrafted.

Losing Easton isn’t the start the Vikings wanted for their offensive line, but adversity hits every team. For Vikings fans, it brings back memories of the 2016 season when it seemed like every offensive lineman on the team was injured]]>
