Former Cardinals RB David Johnson retires

David Johnson has not played since 2022, but it appears he was hoping for another chance.

Johnson, 32, received no interest as a free agent last season or this offseason, and has now resigned.

He announced his retirement on Sunday.

“I am so blessed and appreciative that the Cardinals drafted me in the 3rd round and started my NFL career (literally)! Two games later, I have my uniform and cleats inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. Johnson wrote on social media.” There were highs and lows, but I felt so lucky and honored by the people who supported me throughout this journey.” “Finally, I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this without God’s good grace! He did it all so that a kid who didn’t have much would have the opportunity to do what most people couldn’t do. I look forward to my next career path. I don’t know exactly what that will be, but I hope it will bring me the same passion, excitement and love that football brings me!

He played eight seasons in the NFL after the Cardinals drafted him 86th overall in 2015. Johnson spent five seasons in Arizona, two in Houston and one in New Orleans.

The one-time Pro Bowler finished his career with 1,007 carries for 4,071 yards and 39 touchdowns. He also caught 277 passes for 2,805 yards and 18 touchdowns.

His best season came in 2016 when he racked up a career-best 1,239 yards on 293 attempts and 16 touchdowns. Johnson added 80 catches for 879 yards and four touchdowns during his All-Pro season.
