Johnson signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an underrated free agent on May 5, 2016. He suffered a quadriceps injury early in training camp that caused him to miss most of the practices. He was waived during final roster cuts on September 3, 2016, but was re-signed to the team's practice squad the next day. He was released by the Eagles on September 13, but was later re-signed back to their practice squad on December 2. He signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on January 2, 2017.
After impressing coaches during training camp in 2017, Johnson made the 53-man roster on September 2, 2017. In Week 5, against the Arizona Cardinals, he recorded his first career catch, a six-yard reception. Johnson was a member of the Eagles Super Bowl LII Championship team after defeating the New England Patriots 41-33.
On March 7, 2018, Johnson and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick were traded to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for Michael Bennett and a seventh-round draft pick. The trade became official on March 14, 2018, at the start of the new league year.
