Houston Texans Awarded Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Receiver

The Houston Texans are adding a proven commodity to one of the league's thinnest wide receiver groups. The team was awarded recent Tampa Bay Buccaneer cut Tyler Johnson off waivers, per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network:
Johnson was a key piece of recent Bucs teams, even tallying the third-most snaps among wide receivers on last year's unit. But he couldn't crack the top seven receivers on this year's group, falling behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Russell Gage, Julio Jones, Breshad Perriman, Jaelon Darden, and Scotty Miller.

A fifth-round pick out of Minnesota in the 2020 NFL Draft, Johnson leaves the Bucs having caught 48 passes for 529 yards and two touchdowns. He'd been having a strong training camp, and he should quickly find a role for himself on a Texans receiving corps that only kept four pass catchers on its initial 53-man roster.
