The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to add to their 2020 off-season roster, this time signing wide receiver Anthony Johnson to a Reserve/Future contract.

Undrafted in 2019 out of the University at Buffalo, Johnson spent the 2019 training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Failing to make the Buccaneers 53-man roster, Johnson was signed to the practice squad of the Los Angeles Chargers where he remained for the entirety of the 2019 season.

In his two years at Buffalo, Johnson had double digit touchdowns and over 1,000 yards receiving both seasons. In his junior year, Johnson caught 76 passes for 1,356 yards and 14 touchdowns. As a senior, Johnson caught 57 passes for 1,011 yards and 11 touchdowns.

In the Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason game at Heinz Field in Week 1 of the 2019 preseason, Johnson had three catches for 33 yards. For the entire preseason, Johnson had five catches for 57 yards.
