The Philadelphia Eagles conducted a private workout this week with former Tulsa all-purpose standout Damaris Johnson, according to a league source.
An extremely explosive, versatile athlete, Johnson set NCAA records with 7,796 all-purpose yards and 3,417 kickoff return yards in three seasons at Tulsa.
For his career, Johnson had 2,746 receiving yards and 1,062 rushing yards and earned Associated Press second-team All-American mention two years ago.
The 5-foot-7, 175-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 to 4.52 seconds, posting a 30-inch vertical leap, a 9-5 board jump, a 4.20 in the 20-yard shuttle and a 6.80 in the three-cone drill at his campus Pro Day workout. He bench pressed 225 pounds 13 times.
Johnson was suspended for the entire season last year due to him being charged with embezzlement after paying only $14 for $2,600 worth of merchandise at a store where his girlfriend worked.
Johnson received a one-year deferred sentence and has nearly completed his community service requirement.
His record is expected to be expunged once he completes his community service. Johnson had no prior brushes with the law.
Two seasons ago, he caught 57 passes for 872 yards and four touchdowns as he returned 34 kickoffs for 904 yards and returned 23 punts for 292 yards and one touchdown.
He also rushed for 560 yards and seven touchdowns.
As a sophomore, he averaged 224 all-purpose yards per game. He scored 13 touchdowns: seven on the ground, four receiving and one apiece on kickoff and punt returns.
He caught 78 passes for 1,131 yards and three touchdowns.
Johnson led Conference USA as a true freshman with 2,475 all-purpose yards with a team-high 10 touchdowns.
