We’ve signed WR Tyron Johnson and DT P.J. Johnson to our practice squad.— Los Angeles Chargers (@Chargers) December 4, 2019
Johnson spent one season at Arizona after transferring in from City College of San Francisco. Playing both inside and outside, Johnson was highly-productive. The 6-foot-4, 335-pound DT logged 31 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble and a pass breakup.
Johnson graduated last spring and opted to forgo his senior season. Had he stayed in college, he has been pretty open about the fact he was considering transferring to Oregon:
