USF Senior receiver Taurus Johnson who had 38 receptions for 498 yards and six touchdowns in his senior season, and finished his career at USF with 112 catches for 1,434 yards and 12 touchdowns, has signed a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs after this weekend's NFL Draft.
At 6'1-208 pounds, has a good blend of strength & size. At the scouting combine, T.J. ran a 4.43 & a 4.48 in the 40 yard dash and put up 18 reps of 225, placing him in the top 5 for receivers. He also registered a 35 1/2 inch vertical leap a 10-1 broad jump.
T. J garnered plenty of interest from the Bears, Browns, Denver, and worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but had a private work-outs with the Kansas City Chiefs WR Coach Dedric Ward at Saddle Brook before the draft.
"Coach Ward is a real good coach and I'd love to play for him and the Chiefs."
