Todd Edward Johnson (born December 18, 1978) is a former American college and professional football player who was a safety in the National Football League (NFL) for seven seasons during the 2000s. Johnson played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills of the NFL.

Johnson was born in Sarasota, Florida in 1978. He attended Riverview High School in Sarasota, where he was a standout defensive back for the Riverview Rams high school football team. Johnson was an all-state selection and a SuperPrep All-American as a senior, and set the school record for the 110-yard intermediate hurdles in track & field.

Johnson received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Steve Spurrier and coach Ron Zook's Florida Gators football teams from 1998 to 2002. The Gators coaching staff decided to redshirt him as a a true freshman in 1998, and he spent the season practicing with the scout team; subsequently, Johnson became a four-year letterman and started in thirty-three out of forty-nine games in which he played. As a redshirt freshman in 1999, he had twenty-four tackles, four passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. During his sophomore season in 2000, he started all thirteen games, made a career-high 102 tackles, five interceptions, three passes defensed, one forced fumble, and four fumble recoveries, including one returned seventy-six yards for a touchdown, and received first-team All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) honors. Johnson started all eleven games as junior in 2001, tallying seventy-two tackles, three passes defensed, and two interceptions and again received first-team All-SEC honors. As a senior in 2002, he started all thirteen games, an compiled eighty-eight tackles and two interceptions and was a second-team All-SEC selection. Johnson finished his Gator career with a total of 284 tackles and nine interceptions.
