No. That's not what I'm saying.

Merriam Webster:

1 : a worker who has learned a trade and works for another person usually by the day
2: an experienced reliable worker, athlete, or performer especially as distinguished from one who is brilliant or colorful <a good journeyman trumpeter — New Yorker> <a journeyman outfielder>

The writer of this article used the correct usage.

The definition as someone who moved from city to city is usually used by a few ex-athletes turned broadcasters who can't speak English and apparently by some HF posters. Doesn't make it right.
