Tyron Johnson caught a break.

After going undrafted in this year’s NFL Draft, the former Oklahoma State wide receiver agreed to sign as an undrafted free agent with the Texans, according to multiple reports.

Johnson even tweeted an unofficial announcement about the deal.

Johnson hauled in 53 receptions for 845 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in his junior season for the Cowboys. The 6-foot-1, 193-pounder joins a top-heavy experienced wide receiver corps in Houston with three-time Pro Bowler DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. The Texans didn’t draft a wide receiver, but has since picked up Johnson and former Ohio State wide out Johnnie Dixon as undrafted free agents.

Oklahoma State had two players drafted this weekend with running back Justice Hill going in the fourth round to the Ravens and defensive end Jordan Brailford being selected with the second-to-last pick in the draft by the Redskins.
