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.

I'm sure the change in offensive strategy had nothing to do with acquiring a different style of running back.

But I guess maybe Jordan Howard isn't "all that".

Hunt is suspended 8 games so I doubt they move him.

Howard has production on his side, Johnson hasn't accomplished much.
Johnson 3456 total yards and 13 TD's over 4 years = 864 average total yards / 3.25 average td's
Howard 3938 total yards and 25 TD's over 3 years = 1312 average total yards / 8.3 average td's

While Chubb does fit your premise of needing a different style RB for a different system, Hunt and Johnson are similar backs. So why acquire Hunt when you just signed Johnson to an extension if Johnson's worth anything?

Mountain Mist to Mt Dew? WEll I guess you have to drink those to catch the comparison



One is the off brand generic lol


And a ton more carbonation lol... One gives me the shits other gives me gas. You don't mix Mnt Dew with a Velveeta cheese based queso dip I cleared out a room of 50 people. Noone would come within 20 yards from me.

Eagles Reportedly Interested In Browns RB Duke Johnson
April 1, 2019 at 9:00 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Even after acquiring running back Jordan Howard from the Bears last week, the Eagles may not be finished retooling the position just yet. According to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, the Eagles have shown interest in Browns RB Duke Johnson.

Cabot reports Johnson’s camp has requested a trade after an offseason full or rumors. The 25-year-old was a no-show at the Browns’ voluntary off season program Monday.

Johnson is a dynamic pass-catcher and a dual-threat in the mold of Darren Sproles. With Sproles contemplating retirement, the Eagles appear to be in need of a passing-down back.

Right now, the Eagles backfield consists of Howard, Josh Adams, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood. Johnson is a bit on the small side at 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds, but his numbers speak for itself.

Eagles Acquire RB Jordan Howard In Trade With Bears

In his four NFL seasons, Johnson averages 4.3 yards per carry and has scored five total rushing touchdowns. In the passing game, Johnson has averaged 9.2 yards per catch and eight total receiving touchdowns.
Johnson put up his best numbers in 2017 with seven combined touchdowns and 1,041 total yards. The Browns then rewarded him with a three-year, $15 million deal.

With second-year running back Nick Chubb coming on strong at the end of last season and now the addition of Kareem Hunt, the Browns could be looking to move Johnson’s contract.

Cabot also mentions the Jets and Texans as interested teams.

I'd love for him to be a part of the Bears. But with Cohen and Davis on board, I think the Bears turn to the draft. Now...if they can get him for the pick that they got for Howard, I'd be all for it.
