The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added a new face to the running backs room Monday with the signing of Storm Johnson.
The former UCF Knight spent last season out of the league after he was cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars leading up to Week 1.
Johnson’s a big, 6-foot, 216-pound back that doesn’t bring much speed to the table as a between-the-tackles type runner. A short-yardage, power option is something the Bucs lack and an issue they may address through free agency or this week’s NFL Draft.
Prior to being released last September, Johnson was a seventh-round selection of the Jaguars in 2014. He played in six games that season, picking up 86 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.
Johnson arrived in UCF in 2011 after transferring from Miami and backed up current Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray in 2012 before starring with the Knights his final two seasons alongside quarterback Blake Bortles.
