NFL teams are starting to make some tough decisions when it comes to who will be making their rosters. A former Minnesota WR was 1 of the players who did not make it, per Greg Auman of The Athletic.

Tyler Johnson is reportedly getting waived by the Buccaneers. He spent his 1st 2 NFL seasons with the team, and had 529 career yards receiving with 2 touchdowns.

Auman seems to think that the decision may have come down to depth at the receiver position. The move is especially surprising because Johnson led the team in catches and yards during the preseason.

1 thing that Johnson lacked that the team was looking for was experience on special teams. Johnson’s release may have something to do with that. The former Minnesota wideout was drafted by the Bucs in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Johnson has proven that he has what it takes to play in the NFL. We’ll see what team decides to pick him up off of the waivers.
