Bucs signed RB Storm Johnson, formerly of the Jaguars.
Due to the NFL's archaic practice squad rules, Johnson was not practice squad eligible in 2015 because he played in six games as a 2014 rookie. He struggled mightily in that year with the Jags, managing 2.97 YPC on 29 carries. Johnson will go to Bucs as a practice body and extreme long shot to make the 53. Apr 25 - 4:28 PM

Free agent RB Storm Johnson worked out for the Bengals last week.

Johnson didn't play in 2015 after he failed to make it out of final cuts with the Jaguars. The 2014 seventh-rounder averaged a pitiful 3.0 YPC on 29 carries as a rookie and was subject of criticism from coach Gus Bradley last spring.
Feb 10 - 9:46 AM

Jaguars waived RB Storm Johnson.

The No. 222 overall pick of last year's draft, Johnson made one start and notched 29 carries as a rookie, but averaged just 3.0 yards per tote. He's pretty much the definition of a replacement-level back. The Jaguars have also waived CB Jeremy Harris, TE Ben Koyack, WR Neal Sterling, DE Cap Capi, DT Richard Ash, DE Camaron Beard, WR Kasey Closs, OG Will Corbin, TE Connor Hamlett, DE Ike Igbinosun, WR Erik Lora, OG Chris Reed, CB Rashaad Reynolds, LB Todd Thomas, CB Peyton Thompson and WR Tony Washington.

Jaguars activated RB Storm Johnson from active/NFI.

Johnson was battling an illness, but finally passed his physical on Wednesday and can start practicing after missing a week of camp. He's competing with Bernard Pierce and Corey Grant behind T.J. Yeldon, Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart.

Storm Johnson (illness) expects to return to practice next week.

Johnson opened training camp on the active/NFI list, but is considered day to day. He's at risk of getting cut after disappointing at OTAs. Johnson is competing with UDFA Corey Grant and Bernard Pierce for the final running back spot.

Jaguars placed RB Storm Johnson on the active/NFI list.

Johnson missed some OTAs due to a back injury, but the Jags don't have to disclose the injury that's now keeping him out. It's also possible Johnson reported out of shape and couldn't pass his physical. A seventh-round draft pick in 2014, Johnson is on the roster bubble behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson.

The Florida Times-Union doesn’t project Storm Johnson or Bernard Pierce to make the 53-man roster.

Johnson "is in the most trouble of not making the roster," according to reporter Ryan O’Halloran. After a nondescript offseason, Pierce is in danger of losing the final running back spot. The Jaguars like UDFA Corey Grant for his special teams value behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson.

The Florida Times Union singled out RB Storm Johnson as a player in danger of getting cut before Week 1.

Johnson, a seventh-round pick last year, earned just 29 carries as a rookie even though the Jags dealt with injuries at running back. Now they've added a new starter in T.J. Yeldon, leaving Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart as quality backups. Coach Gus Bradley has been publicly critical of Storm all spring.
Tue, Jun 16, 2015 08:02:00 AM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said second-year RB Storm Johnson has regressed.

"Storm had been doing really well and then he plateaued a little," Bradley said. The Jags' disappointment in Johnson's OTA performance has been clear. Johnson is at risk of falling behind Bernard Pierce for the final running back spot.
Sat, Jun 6, 2015 03:31:00 PM

Coach Gus Bradley called out RB Storm Johnson as a player who needs to pick it up at OTAs.

Johnson averaged a pitiful 3.0 YPC on 29 totes as a rookie and is in a battle with Bernard Pierce for what could be just one roster spot. Johnson is an average athlete and had fumbling and pass-protection issues in college. His Dynasty stock is about as low as it gets buried behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson.
Thu, Jun 4, 2015 12:54:00 PM

Storm Johnson and Bernard Pierce could battle for one roster spot in training camp.

The Jags are tentatively expected to keep four running backs: T.J. Yeldon, Denard Robinson, Toby Gerhart and one of the two mentioned above. Storm did not seize his opportunity as a rookie last year, gaining just 86 yards on 29 carries while falling far behind Robinson. Pierce, dumped by the RB-needy Ravens this offseason, offers a similarly low ceiling.

Storm Johnson didn't touch the ball in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

Johnson played a few snaps, but it was all Jordan Todman, even after Toby Gerhart was injured in the first half. Johnson's rookie season ends with 86 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries (3.0 YPC). Seventh-round rookie Johnson saw very limited snaps in year one. He got his most extensive look from Weeks 5-7, when he rushed 24 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns. Denard Robinson then took over the Jacksonville backfield and provided much more explosiveness at running back. Johnson is an average athlete who can get what’s blocked, but not much more. He’ll be back in 2015 to compete for a spot in the Jaguars’ backfield. Johnson's Dynasty stock isn't high.

Storm Johnson rushed three times for three yards in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

The seventh-round rookie was a distant third on the depth chart behind Toby Gerhart and Jordan Todman. Johnson could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Gerhart is sidelined by his rib injury.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 12:03:00 AM

Jaguars declared RB Storm Johnson, WR Tommy Streeter, CB Jeremy Harris, LB A.J. Edds, LB Khairi Fortt, OL Tyler Shatley, and DE Andre Branch inactive for Week 14 against the Texans.

The Jags have no surprises among their Week 14 inactives.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Jaguars declared RB Storm Johnson, OG Brandon Linder, DE Andre Branch, OT Sam Young, CB Tommie Campbell, LB Jeremiah George and WR Mike Brown inactive for Week 10 against the Cowboys.

Johnson is once again a healthy scratch. Denard Robinson will carry the load again this week, with Toby Gerhart filling in as a change-of-pace option. Linder (shoulder) will be out an extended period. Branch (groin) is week-to-week.
