On Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a change on their practice squad for Week 11, signing fifth-year safety Jaquan Johnson and releasing first-year defensive lineman C.J. Brewer.
Originally a sixth-round pick by the Bills in the 2019 draft, Johnson played four seasons in Buffalo, appearing in 60 games with four starts. He recorded 58 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defensed in the regular season and also played in eight playoff games, adding 17 tackles.
The Bills re-signed Johnson to a second contract this past March but released him near the end of the preseason. He was not on a team for the first 10 weeks of the regular season. Johnson played his college ball at Miami, where he contributed 252 tackles, eight interceptions, 2.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He had four interceptions as a junior in 2017, returning one of them for a touchdown.
The Buccaneers signed Brewer in May after he had participated in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout contract. He went to training camp with the Bucs but was waived in the final roster cuts and signed to the practice squad. Another former Bill, Brewer got into two games for Buffalo in 2022 and made two tackles.
