Cowboys Sign a Speedy Receiver Who Makes ‘Explosive Catches’: Report

Cowboys Likely Sign Speedy Receiver Who Makes ‘Explosive Catches’: Report


The Dallas Cowboys remain busy in the days following the 2024 NFL draft. The Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken reported that the team is meeting with wide receiver Tyron Billy-Johnson on April 30, 2024 with the expectation that the team will consider signing the wideout.



“Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott’s signing may be officially processed Tuesday,” Gehlken detailed in an April 30, 2024 message on X. “So could another: WR Tyron Billy-Johnson, a speedster who spent most of last season on practice squad, is visiting team and may sign upon completion of a physical, two people familiar with situation said.”



Billy-Johnson spent the majority of last season on the Cowboys practice squad but did not play in a game. The veteran signed a practice squad deal with Dallas on August 30, but the team released the wideout on January 4.

Billy-Johnson offers the Cowboys elite speed posting a 4.34-second 40-yard dash. This speed has not necessarily translated to production at the NFL level.



The receiver’s best season came with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020 when Billy-Johnson posted 20 receptions for 398 yards and 3 touchdowns in 12 appearances. Billy-Johnson also has special teams experience as a returner, something increasingly valuable given the recent NFL rule changes.



The playmaker last played with the Houston Texans and Las Vegas Raiders in 2022. The wideout also suited up with the Jacksonville Jaguars during his career.
