A week after former Boise State wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, another former Bronco is back in the NFL.

On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have signed safety Jeron Johnson, who had been a free agent. Johnson, who was undrafted in 2011 following his Boise State career, has played for the Seahawks and Redskins in the regular season. He was in camp with the Chiefs before being released, signing with Seattle, where he spent his first four seasons.

Johnson has played in 64 NFL games, starting twice, totaling 75 tackles. He has been a strong special teamer, too. The Broncos have 24 former players currently in training camps.
