With the 49ers last season he caught 35 passes for 435 yards and three touchdowns.
Before that, Johnson spent six seasons with the Buffalo Bills in which he caught 28 touchdowns and had three straight 1,000-yard seasons (2010-12).
He figures to fill the role of wide receiver Eddie Royal who departed to the Chicago Bears in free agency last week.
Johnson joins wide receiver Jacoby Jones as the two newest members of the team’s receiving corps.
