Darrius Dashone Johnson (September 17, 1972 – February 25, 2021) was an American professional football player who was a cornerback for the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL).

The Broncos selected Johnson out of Oklahoma in the fourth round of the 1996 draft.[1] Johnson played in 61 games for the Broncos from 1996 to 1999, during which he had two interceptions, both in 1998. One of his biggest games was a 1999 playoff game against the Miami Dolphins, where Johnson had a 44-yard interception return and caused a fumble which was returned for a touchdown.[2] Johnson was a member of the Broncos' Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII championship squads. Johnson played briefly for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2003.
