  • Raiders' Tyler Johnson: Heads to Las Vegas

    The Raiders signed Johnson to a reserve/future contract Wednesday.

    Johnson was drafted by Tampa Bay in the fifth round in 2020 and appeared in 31 games during his first two NFL seasons, totaling 48 receptions on 72 targets for 529 yards and two scores. He was claimed off waivers by the Texans at the beginning of the 2022 campaign, but he made just two appearances with Houston and didn't garner any targets across 28 offensive snaps. He rejoined Tampa Bay's practice squad after the Texans waived him in late October, but he was never elevated and ultimately became a free agent after the Buccaneers were eliminated from the playoffs. With his new contract, Johnson will join his third NFL organization and will have a chance to compete for a roster spot during the offseason.

  • Tyler Johnson: Signed to Bucs' practice squad

    Johnson was signed to the Buccaneers' practice squad Monday.

    Johnson will return to Tampa Bay after he played in 17 games with the team in 2021, reeling in 36 catches for 360 yards over those contests. With Russell Gage (hamstring) still banged up, it's possible that Johnson could be elevated to the active roster if Gage remains out. The wide receiver appeared in two games with the Texans this season, failing to garner a target over 28 offensive snaps.

  • Tyler Johnson: Waived by Houston

    Houston waived Johnson on Tuesday, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Johnson appeared in Weeks 4 and 5 but didn't record a target across 28 offensive snaps. Following Houston's Week 6 bye, the wideout found himself as a healthy scratch once again in Week 7 and will now have to look for a new opportunity in 2022. The 2020 fifth-round pick caught 48 of 72 targets for 529 yards and two scores during his first two campaigns in Tampa Bay, but it's unclear what type of attention he'll draw as a free agent.

  • Texans' Tyler Johnson: Not playing Sunday

    Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Raiders, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    After Johnson took the field for 43 percent of Houston's offensive snaps Week 5 against Jacksonville, the Texans have elected to sit him Sunday following their Week 6 bye. Johnson has yet to see a target in two appearances this season.

  • Texans' Tyler Johnson: Third-highest snap count Week 5

    Johnson wasn't targeted over 25 snaps on offense Sunday in Texans' 13-6 win over the Jaguars.

    Johnson was active for the second consecutive week and was handed the third-highest snap count among wideouts, moving ahead of Phillip Dorsett on the depth chart. He took the role that would normally go to the inactive Chris Moore (hip). If the Texans don't have to pass, they won't, so targets among the position group are typically scarce and usually go to Brandin Cooks or Nico Collins.

  • Texans' Tyler Johnson: Active for Week 4

    Johnson is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Johnson has not suited up for a game this season, but he will have a chance to see action Sunday for the first time since being claimed off waivers from the Buccaneers in late August. Johnson will be one of five active Texans receivers, so it's unlikely he will fill a key role even if he does get on the field.

  • Texans' Tyler Johnson: Inactive Sunday

    Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Colts.

    Johnson joined the Texans on Aug. 31 after being claimed off waivers from the Buccaneers. The 24-year-old will continue to try to crack the roster on gameday, as he gets more familiar with Houston's playbook.

  • Texans' Tyler Johnson: Lands in Houston

    The Texans claimed Johnson off waivers from the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Johnson, who caught 36 of his 55 targets for 360 yards in 17 games with the Buccaneers last season, lands in a spot where could could carve out a key role on offense once he's up to speed with the Texans' playbook. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins profile as Houston's top two wideouts, but beyond those two options, plenty of targets are up for grabs.

  • Tyler Johnson: Caught up in roster cuts

    The Buccaneers waived Johnson on Tuesday, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.

    Johnson, a 2020 fifth-round pick, finds himself on the outside of Tampa Bay's deep wide receiver corps despite putting together a solid preseason, which he capped off by catching three of four targets for 36 yards during Saturday's finale versus the Colts. He appeared in all 17 regular-season games last year, securing 36 of 55 targets for 360 receiving yards. It's something of a surprise to see the Buccaneers part ways with Johnson, and he's a candidate to be claimed on waivers.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Three catches in preseason finale

    Johnson brought in three of four targets for 36 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-10 preseason loss to the Colts on Saturday night.

    Johnson already seemingly has the No. 5 wideout spot sealed up, but he co-led the team in receptions in the preseason finale for good measure. The third-year receiver put together a very strong body of work in both training camp and exhibition games this summer, and given he already has a solid rapport with Tom Brady, Johnson could carve out his fair share of opportunities over the course of the regular season despite the wealth of talent ahead of him.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Two catches Saturday

    Johnson brought in both targets for 24 yards in the Buccaneers' 13-3 preseason loss to the Titans on Saturday night.

    Johnson co-led the Bucs in receptions on the night despite his modest total, the second time in as many exhibitions he's been at the top of the leaderboard in that department. His roster spot is secure, but it's still encouraging to see him generate serviceable production relative to playing time and inconsistent quarterback play.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Paces pass catchers in opener

    Johnson brought in six of seven targets for 73 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason loss to the Dolphins on Saturday night.

    Johnson led the Buccaneers in receptions, receiving yards and targets on a night when none of Mike Evans (hamstring), Chris Godwin (knee), Julio Jones (coach's decision) and Russell Gage (leg) saw the field. The third-year wideout made a notable statement in his bid to lock down a spot in the latter half of the Buccaneers' wide receiver depth chart and should continue to log plenty of snaps again in next Saturday night's road exhibition matchup versus the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Impressing early in camp

    Johnson, who's been a full participant in training camp after finishing last season's postseason run with a rib injury, has made a strong impression in his bid for the No. 5 receiver job, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. "Tyler came in in great shape," head coach Todd Bowles said. "I think he's learned the offense a little more, so he's playing a lot freer than he was the last two years. This is a great camp for him. He'll get a lot of playing time, and we'll get to see what he's really doing."

    Auman notes Johnson has particularly impressed with catches over the middle in 7-on-7 and full-squad drills. The third-year pro has acquitted himself relatively well in limited opportunity over his first two seasons, taking advantage of injuries in the Buccaneers' receiving corps at times on his way to generating a 48-529-2 line on 72 targets across 31 games. With Tampa Bay's top four wideouts set, Johnson is battling several candidates, including capable holdovers Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller, for a spot on the back end of the positional depth chart this summer.
