It took longer than anyone would have liked to see, but then it all worked out beautifully for former Minnesota Golden Gophers WR Tyler Johnson. He was selected by the Tampa Ba Buccaneers with the 161st pick in the fifth round and now joins fellow former Gopher Antoine Winfield Jr. In Tampa Bay as rookies. Oh yeah...Tyler also has some guy named Tom Brady throwing balls to him...bet he’s no Tanner Morgan.

How Does He Fit
Well he has one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history throwing to him....that’s not too bad. Tampa Bay has Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as their top two receivers, but there is a big glaring hole in the #3 spot that looks perfect for Tyler to step into!
