BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Southern University defensive back Danny Johnson was not taken in the 2018 NFL draft, but the East Feliciana Parish native will still get a chance to live his dream.

According to a tweet from Southern University Sports, Johnson signed with the Washington Redskins as a free agent on Saturday.

He is scheduled to make his debut at rookie minicamp May 11 through May 13.

He will join fellow Louisiana native Derrius Guice, the running back from LSU who was taken by the Redskins in the second round.
