The Dallas Cowboys, in an effort to bolster their already significant depth at the wide receiver position, today signed former Ohio State Buckeye Johnnie Dixon.

Dixon worked out with the team last week. He also recently tried out for the Browns at Cleveland’s rookie minicamp.

He joins a wide receiver room that includes fellow former Buckeye Noah Brown, as well as Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, Cedrick Wilson and Malik Turner. Dallas drafted Stanford receiver Simi Fehoko in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Dixon went undrafted out of Ohio State in 2019, but has spent time with the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals, although he has never appeared in a regular season game.

As a Buckeye, he registered 67 catches for 1,146 yards and 16 touchdowns.
