Former Buckeye JOHNNIE DIXON signs with the DALLAS COWBOYS after tryout..
Dixon had another NFL tryout, and this time he impressed enough to earn himself a deal. The former Ohio State wide receiver signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys, his agent Jason Bernstein announced on Monday afternoon. Dixon isn't guaranteed a roster spot, but he will have a chance to prove himself now that he's healthy again. He went undrafted in 2019 and was soon signed as a free agent by Houston Texas who cut him on Aug. 31 of that year. The Arizona Cardinals picked him up, and he spent his rookie season on their practice squad – though he dealt with a hamstring injury. After the season, he inked a reserve/future contract with them, but he dealt with an abdomen injury and was waived in September 2020 with an injury settlement. This time, Dixon's shot to make a case that he belongs in the NFL will come in Dallas. As a Buckeye, Dixon fought through significant injury issues that threatened his career to record 67 receptions for 1,146 yards and 16 touchdowns
