Johnson, who was originally signed by the Steelers in March 2012 after taking part in the West Virginia Pro Day that year, is now scheduled to earn a $1.542 million salary in 2015.
Johnson caught six passes for 41 yards last season and he now has 29 receptions and two touchdowns for his career. He played just over 200 snaps last season on offense and was also a primary piece on special teams.
Johnson is now the second player that has signed a restricted tender as cornerback Antwon Blake signed his a few weeks ago. Safety Robert Golden is now the lone restricted tendered player that has yet to sign and that his expected to happen very soon.
