Kevin Johnson was Houston's first round pick in the 2015 Draft, 16th overall. He has struggled to stay healthy since. After playing all sixteen games in his rookie year, Johnson has missed 29 games in the last three seasons. He's dealt with a broken foot, a sprained MCL, and multiple concussions in that time.

Monday is the legal tampering period, where players can talk to upcoming free agents. Signings cannot be made official until Wednesday.

The Bills likely won't do much else in the secondary if the Kevin Johnson signing goes through. Tre'Davious White is locked in as the top corner on the team. Levi Wallace impressed, starting seven games for the Bills last season.
