Keeping an aim to make them an even more formidable force in the highly competitive NFC West and prove their caliber to ink championship, the Los Angeles Rams added another weapon to their already illustrious offensive arsenal by signing former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Lombardi trophy winner wide receiver Tyler Johnson.

Tyler’s career witnessed major ups and downs in his recent career and Los Angeles will be his third destination this year after facing back-to-back releases in this short period, however, his incredible performance with the NFL GOAT Tom Brady on multiple chunk plays shouldn’t not be forgotten as well.

The Rams newly added troop was constantly hitting headlines in his college career with the Minnesota Golden Gophers, having 164 receptions for 2,487 yards and 25 touchdowns in 2018 and 2019, leading him to get inked as a first-team All-Big Ten selection in back-to-back seasons.

After being drafted by the Buccaneers in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-1, 206-pounder had a short career in the team’s offense, recording 48 receptions for 529 yards and two touchdowns during his two seasons tenure before being released from Tampa Bay just before the next season.

He found his next destination in the Houston Texas squad, however, he only played in two games there and discovered himself out of the roster in October.

After being released from his second home, the 24-year-old signed back with Tampa Bay to participate in their practice for the remainder of the season and signed a new deal with the Las Vegas Raiders following the season, however, the franchise too later released him just two weeks ago.

As Johnson embarks on a new chapter in Los Angeles, he can look forward to regaining the form he once had in his college career, and hopefully, his addition to the roster will push the Rams closer to achieving their ultimate goal of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
