Word across the Twitter is that as soon as the Browns find out what Kareem Hunt's status is with the NFL, they will be shopping Duke Johnson. I've long said that aside from Hunt, there isn't a better fit at RB for the Bears in the entire NFL than Johnson.

I don't know what it would take to get him, but I'd happily give the Browns a 3rd round pick for him if I was Pace, then I'd try to flip Howard for a late 3rd/early 4th.

I want Howard as a Bear this season. With that said Duke may be the only back id be ok with moving on from Howard for. One of my all time fav Canes and as you said a perfect fit for this offense.

Than Howard?

He averages almost 5 yards a carry, has the vision/speed/balance Nagy and Pace have specifically said they look for in a back and has caught 235 passes in 4 years. He has like 40 more career receptions in 4 years than Taylor Gabriel has in 5 years (and almost the same amount of receiving yards).

He's perfect for this offense. Literally perfect.

Having said all of that - I don't think the Bears in actuality would trade for him. He's too similar to Davis...Davis is sort of the Mountain Mist to Johnson's Mt. Dew.

I was gonna say, he's getting around $5M a season as well. I think Howard is a goner, we draft someone and the rookie battles it out with Davis for the lions share of the carries.

I'd like for us to get the Duke in a huge way. But what would the Browns want in trade for him?

Meh. Browns wouldn't have drafted Chubb and signed Hunt if Johnson was "all that". 5 YPC isn't that impressive on 40 carries. Neither is 5 rushing TD's in 4 years. He was pretty average when he was given over 100 carries in his rookie year. Decent receiver out of the backfield, but not a feature back IMO.
