Cornerback Terrence Johnson, who was with Falcons briefly last season, signed a two-year $1.2 million reserve/futures contract with the team on Jan. 24.

After Brent Grimes went down with an Achilles injury in the season opener, Johnson was signed by the team in order to fill his spot on the 53-man roster on September 11.

With the emergence of cornerback Robert McClain, Johnson was waived on Oct. 26 to make room defensive tackle Corey Peters.

Johnson, who turns 27 in July, played in 10 games and made two starts with the Indianapolis Colts in 2011. He was used primarily as a nickel back before he suffered a forearm injury and was placed on injured reserve.

Johnson, 5-foot-9, 195-pounds, played collegiately at California, Pa.
