Johnson, 26, last played on an active roster in 2016, when he appeared in two games for the Minnesota Vikings. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound defender has also played for the Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.

Nunn entered the NFL this offseason as an undrafted free agent. The offensive lineman played for four seasons at Appalachian State. He originally signed with the Lions on May 11 and was waived in July. The Lions signed Nunn again on August 20.

Johnson entered the NFL in 2015 with the Titans. He has two career tackles. If no other team claims Nunn, the Lions can place him on injured reserve.

Detroit's starting offensive line includes Taylor Decker at left tackle, Frank Ragnow at left guard, Graham Glasgow at center, T.J. Lang at right guard and Rick Wagner at right tackle.
