News: Johnson signed a two-year contract with the Steelers on Thursday.
Impact: As a backup tight end in Pittsburgh last season, Johnson played in all 16 games and made five starts. He finished the regular season with seven receptions for 80 yards. He'll figure to be a backup once again in 2017 and shouldn't be expected to have much fantasy value.

News: Johnson was not targeted in the Steelers' 30-12 wild-card win against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Impact: Going without a touch is not unusual for Johnson. He played in all 16 games this season, recording just seven catches on 11 targets for 80 yards. An unrestricted free agent in the offseason, his role is unlikely to change regardless of whether he returns to Pittsburgh or moves on to another team next season.
