Leaders bench a starting, seasoned cornerback

– Washington waives veteran cornerback Danny Johnson, who spent his entire career with the team through two name changes.

– Johnson was informed of his release, costing Washington over $1M in dead money, just nine months after re-signing him to a two-year, $5M deal.

– The team replaces Johnson with cornerback Kyu Blu Kelly, claimed off waivers from the Packers, making him the fourth team for the fifth-round Ravens pick in his rookie year.

– Significant changes occurred since Johnson's re-signing, with Ron Rivera firing DC Jack Del Rio and defensive backs coach Brent Vieselmeyer after a Thanksgiving Day loss.

– Johnson, 28, started eight games in his career, with four last season, but operated exclusively as a backup this year, playing 24% of Washington’s defensive snaps.

– Kyu Blu Kelly, six years younger than Johnson, is on his rookie contract and has been claimed by three teams, including the Seahawks in August and the Packers in November.

– Johnson predates Ron Rivera's tenure, having been picked up as an undrafted free agent by Washington in 2018.
