Chiefs re-sign Johnson, Ndukwe
Johnson was the Chiefs' first-round pick out of Texas in 2005. But early last season, for reasons he said were never fully explained by the coaching staff, Johnson was moved to part-time duty.
Johnson had a key sack of Ben Roethlisberger in a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a 44-24 victory over the Denver Broncos in the season finale.
The Chiefs also said Thursday that offensive lineman Ikechuku Ndukwe had signed a restricted free-agent tender.
