Rams Bring Back Receiver Tyler Johnson

The Los Angeles Rams agreed to an undisclosed deal to re-sign wide receiver Tyler Johnson on Saturday. Johnson was with the team's practice squad all year but was active in Week 18 and caught two of his three targets for eight yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers. The former fifth-round pick (161st overall) in 2020 out of Minnesota by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has 50 career catches on 75 targets for 537 yards and three touchdowns in 34 games (six starts) in his four seasons in the NFL with the Rams, Buccaneers and Houston Texans. The 25-year-old will return to Los Angeles in 2024 and will likely be on the practice squad again while providing depth at the position behind Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua, Demarcus Robinson, Tutu Atwell and Ben Skowronek.

Rams Elevate Tyler Johnson From Practice Squad

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Tyler Johnson has been elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster, the team announced on Saturday. Johnson, who totaled 360 yards with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, hasn't registered a target over the last two seasons. Furthermore, he hasn't appeared in a game this year. However, he has a chance to play this week if the Rams choose to make him active. Confirmation on his status will be available 90 minutes prior to kickoff on Sunday. Even if Johnson suits up, he's not on the fantasy radar.

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."
