Reception room gets smaller: Jaguars give up Tyron Johnson
Jacksonville, Florida. Tyron Johnson’s trial in Jacksonville has ended.
The Jaguars released the receiver on Tuesday morning, parting ways for a quick pickup for a wire waiver after he struggled to get into the team.
The Jaguars had the highest priority waiver last September and used it to demand that Johnson be suspended from the wires from the Chargers. He was a deep threat with Los Angeles, averaging 19.9 yards per catch last season. Johnson was expected to add a cool element to the Jaguars, but he rarely made it onto the field.
Johnson played only 40 shots in six games with Jacksonville. He had two catches for 16 yards.
Cutting Johnson showed how hard he was. Jaguars are being starved to help with this position and Johnson is expected to add at least a wrinkle of speed in the unit. Jaguar receivers struggled to click with Trevor Lawrence.
