Eagles Sign WR Mike Johnson

The Eagles signed wide receiver Mike Johnson Monday, filling the roster spot left void by the trade of Brandon Boykin over the weekend. The roster now stands at 90 players.

Johnson, 6-2, 210, is a rookie out of Delaware who took part in the Eagles' rookie camp during the spring as a tryout player. At Delaware, Johnson totaled 182 catches for 2,325 yards over his four seasons. As a junior, he caught 60 passes for 1,035 yards and nine touchdowns. As a senior in 2014, he caught 78 passes for 830 yards and a touchdown. An all-purpose threat, Johnson also contribute as a rusher and returnman.

"Plus football intelligence for his position," wrote Lance Zierlein in the NFL.com draft profile on Johnson. "Overcomes short-area athleticism and deep-speed concerns with smart routes. Leverages routes to maximize windows for his quarterback. Shows good feel for crossers and is unafraid of working the middle. Natural hands. Has kick-return value."
