Although it is no surprise, the Vikings informed quarterback Brad Johnson this afternoon that he will be released. The move will allow Johnson to pursue his option immediately when the market opens Thursday night at 11 p.m.
Johnson opened the 2006 season as the Vikings starter, but coach Brad Childress benched him with two games remaining in the season. In 14 starts, Johnson completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 2,750 yards. He threw nine touchdown passes and 15 interceptions for a 72.0 passer rating.
In two stints with the Vikings, Johnson had a 28-18 record as a starter. He also has played for Washington and Tampa Bay.
