The Lions signed cornerback Domonique Johnson on Wednesday evening, the team said.

Johnson, who also goes by D.J., has spent time with seven different teams since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Jackson State in 2009.

The 27-year-old most recently played for Washington, appearing in seven games in 2012, but the Redskins released him Monday. Johnson finished the season on injured reserve (knee).

Johnson also played 10 games for the Giants from 2009-10 and has spent time with the Broncos, Eagles, Colts and Bucs.

At 6-foot-1, 191 pounds, Johnson brings a little size to the Lions' secondary, and his signing adds depth to a unit that struggled with injuries and inconsistent play in 2012.
