Johnson, 32, signed a four-year, $19 million deal in 2012 and missed five games with hamstring and hand injuries in 2013. The Chargers will save $1 million with the move.
Butler, 25, wrote on Friday "feeling blessed" and the "deal is done." He was scheduled to be a free agent this offseason.

Chargers snatch Cordarro Law from CFL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (2/14/14) The Chargers made a low-risk signing they hope will bring some high upside Friday, as U-T San Diego reports the team agreed to terms on a reserve/future contract with linebacker Cordarro Law from the Canadian Football League.
Law spent the 2013 season with the Calgary Stampeders, finishing with 14 sacks to finish third in the league. He was undrafted out of Southern Mississippi in 2012, and was cut after training camp with the Seahawks.
According to the report, Law worked out for the Chargers last month along with two other CFL players. He will join the team in San Diego in April for voluntary workouts.

The Chargers DST played well in 2012, and they will look to build off that performance this season. The Chargers were a top-10 Fantasy DST last year with 38 sacks, 14 fumble recoveries, nine defensive touchdowns and 14 interceptions. While the overall stats were good, part of the reason for the success was an easy schedule. The Chargers had 10 games with double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league but three games with five points or less. They also had three huge games against the Chiefs (twice) and Jets with at least 24 Fantasy points in each contest. We expect the Chargers DST to continue to play well this season, and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick as your starting option. (Updated 4/26/13)
