Former North Dakota State offensive lineman Zack Johnson has signed with the Denver Broncos.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Former North Dakota State offensive lineman Zack Johnson signed with the Denver Broncos, the NFL franchise recently announced.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Johnson was waived by the Broncos last week before signing back with Denver. He first joined the Denver practice squad in November of 2021 and signed a futures contract to stay with the team.
Johnson, who was undrafted out of NDSU, has also spent time in the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals organizations.
The 25-year-old Johnson has yet to appear in an NFL regular-season game. He played in 54 games over four seasons during his Bison career. In his final college season in 2019, he played in 16 games and helped the Bison earn a third consecutive NCAA Division I FCS national championship.
Johnson played for NDSU during the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 seasons.
