In the days following the NFL Draft, two more former Cowboys have found landing spots.

In the immediate fallout of the draft, Nathan Latu agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints, Leon Johnson III did so with the Los Angeles Chargers, Anthony Goodlow did with the Los Angeles Rams and Elijah Collins agreed to terms with the Cincinnati Bengals. But OSU has since announced that Josiah Johnson has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks and Braden Cassity has with the Chargers.

Johnson’s announcement came out last Monday. He rejuvenated the tight end position at Oklahoma State this past season, catching 22 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown. It was his first season with the program after transferring from UMass. In five seasons with the Minutemen, Johnson primarily played tight end but was also used as a quarterback. He finished his UMass career with 50 catches for 465 yards and five touchdowns.

OSU announced Cassity’s agreement with the Chargers on Monday. Cassity embodied the Cowboy Back era of OSU football. He started his college career as a defensive end before switching to the Cowboy Back position. After OSU split that position group back into tight ends and fullbacks, Cassity was listed as a fullback in 2023.

He finished his OSU career having caught 14 passes for 140 yards and was voted as a team captain on OSU’s 2022 squad.

It won’t be long until NFL camps get going — in fact, some already have. Some held their three-day post-draft rookie minicamps this past weekend with the other waves of teams going next weekend. Then Rookie Football Development Programs begin May 13.
