ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Texans have released running back Duke Johnson. The Texans will gain around $5 million in cap space by making this move. Houston ended up giving a 3rd round pick to the Browns for Johnson via a conditional trade. This was a deal that was questioned at the time and has proven to be another misstep by then GM, Bill O'Brien.

Many were surprised with the lack of playing time Johnson received, especially for the pick they gave up and the salary he was making. Johnson rushed for only 235 yards last season with 28 catches and 249 receiving yards. Johnson dealt with some injuries and only played in 11 games in 2020. Now the real question becomes, will they cut David Johnson next?
