    Cowboys Sign Former Ohio State WR Johnnie Dixon After Tryout

    The may need another facility to hold all the wide receivers they have. The talented trio of , , and lead the way. However, they also have , , Malik Turner, rookie and others as well.

    You'd think that'd be enough receivers to have on the roster, but the Cowboys have added more depth to the position as of Monday. Former Ohio State Wide Receiver Johnnie Dixon recently had a tryout for the Cowboys, and it garnered him a contract.

    Dixon only played in two games in his first two seasons in Columbus, totaling just two receptions. In his third collegiate season in 2016, Dixon had only six receptions for 26 yards, and he also dealt with knee problems that required surgery. In 2017 as a redshirt junior, things began to turn around for Dixon as he compiled 18 receptions for 422 and eight touchdowns. As a senior, he was named a team captain and was pretty productive with 42 receptions for 669 yards and another eight touchdowns. He also set a career-high in receptions (7) and yards (129) in Ohio State's beat down of Northwestern in the 2018 Big Ten Championship.

    He finished his college career with 67 receptions for 1,146 yards and 16 touchdowns.

    After going undrafted in 2019, Dixon spent time with the and , and had a tryout out for the last week but didn't sign a deal.

    It will be an uphill battle for Dixon to make the Cowboys roster. However, at this point, Dixon just wants an opportunity, and now he has it.

    Agree, it appeared that we had enough WRs already, especially when you add in the 3 or 4 UDFA WRs. But somebody saw something with this guy, so we’ll see. Ohio State does have a pretty good history of producing good WRs. Good luck Johnnie.

    If he doesn’t work out at WR give him a shot as a DB I bet that he has played that position sometime in his career! Who knows he might be a natural at that position! We have so many Receivers now that there is not enough Jersey numbers to field them! Ha
