Prior to that, Johnson was drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals, making his league debut against the Lions in 2019. He recorded 36 receptions for 360 yards (10.0 avg.) and one touchdown in 18 games (five starts) for the Cardinals from 2019-20. Johnson spent the 2021 season on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad.

In a corresponding move, the Falcons have released fellow wide receiver Tyshaun James. They have also waived defensive lineman Bryce Rodgers via an injury settlement.
