The Lions added depth and size to their secondary Wednesday with the signing of journeymen cornerback Domonique Johnson.

Johnson was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Broncos in 2009 out of Jackson State. He began his career on the Broncos practice squad.

The Giants signed him off the Broncos practice squad late in 2009 and he played the last three games of his rookie season on their active roster. He played in seven games for the Giants in 2010 before being released.

He then had stints on the practice squads of the Buccaneers, Vikings, Redskins, Eagles and Colts.

He began last season on the Redskins practice squad but was promoted to the active roster in November and played the final seven games of the season with eight tackles. He was placed on injured reserve after spraining a knee in the last regular season game of the season and was released Monday.

Johnson has 18 tackles in 17 career games.
