    Rams bring back John Johnson III for third stint
    • July 4, 2024

    John Johnson III is back with the Rams. Again.

    The veteran safety has agreed to his third stint with the Rams, the team announced Thursday, one year after a successful return. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Johnson, a third-round draft pick out of Boston College in 2017, started four seasons for the Rams. He left as a free agent in 2021, signing a three-year, $33.75 million deal with the Cleveland Browns.

    Released after two seasons, Johnson signed a one-year contract to come back to the Rams on Aug. 7 last year.

    Johnson, 28, played in all 17 regular-season games last season, eventually starting eight games as well as the Rams’ wild-card playoff loss to the Detroit Lions while helping oversee a defense loaded with untested youth. On the season, he recorded two interceptions – his first coming during a 36-19 victory against Cleveland on Dec. 3 – and 42 tackles.

    The Rams have also brought back defensive back Darious Williams on a three-year deal. Their secondary will have some new faces like former Washington safety Kamren Curl, former Buffalo cornerback Tre’Davious White and rookie safety Kamren Kinchens, a third-round pick out of Miami.

    Training camp begins July 23 at Loyola Marymount University in Westchester.
