Former Ohio State wide receiver Johnnie Dixon is getting another shot to prove himself in the NFL. After securing a tryout with the Cleveland Browns during their rookie minicamp, he was not offered a contract. However, Dixon went through another tryout on Friday with the Dallas Cowboys, and this time it appears he impressed enough to ink a deal according to an announcement on Twitter Monday by his agent Jason Bernstein.

If you’ve followed Dixon’s arc at all, you know that he’s been snakebitten with the injuries during his career. He struggled mightily with knee injuries early on at Ohio State, but finally carved out a significant role with the team his final two seasons in 2017 and 2018.

He went undrafted in the 2019 NFL draft but signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Houston Texans. After they cut him, he was picked up by the Arizona Cardinals, but again, injuries kept him from getting in the mix to show what he could do.

Now, seemingly fully healthy, he’ll get another shot in Big D.
