Tuesday, the Houston Texans announced they had signed WR Tyron Johnson to the active roster. This is his third stint with the Texans.
Johnson, 26, was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Texans in 2019 out of Oklahoma State. He was waived before that season began and signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad. The Bills released him two weeks later, and the Texans signed him to their practice squad five days later.
Johnson’s second time with the team lasted only two days before being released. He also spent time on the Panthers and Chargers practice squads in 2019. He played 12 games for the Chargers in 2020, recording 20 receptions for 398 yards and three touchdowns.
Johnson was waived by the Chargers right before the 2021 season and was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He appeared in five games for the Jaguars but recorded only two catches for 16 yards. He was waived by the Jaguars on November 16 and signed to the Las Vegas Raiders practice squad two days later.
He appeared in two games for the Raiders but did not have a catch. He was released from their practice squad on October 22, 2022.
The Texans were looking to add a receiver after Nico Collins suffered a groin injury, the extent of which has not yet been released by the team.
The Texans also announced they waived WR Tyler Johnson. Johnson, 24, was a former fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite a reported strong training camp, the Bucs waived Johnson on August 30, 2022. The Texans claimed Johnson off waivers and awarded him the next day.
Despite the accolades, he earned in Tampa from the team and the media, Johnson had trouble getting playing time with the Texans. He was active for only two games for Houston and was not targeted in either appearance.
