Stafon Johnson signs with the Titans

Hours after the Tennessee Titans traded away former USC running back LenDale White, they signed another former USC running back, undrafted free agent Stafon Johnson.

Johnson tweeted the news shortly after the draft ended.

Johnson’s 2009 season ended when he suffered life-threatening injuries after dropping a barbell on his throat while lifting weights. Although his voice hasn’t completely recovered, he’s healthy enough to return to the football field.

Johnson gained 1,552 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns in his USC career.
