Texans trade for Browns running back Duke Johnson

@Browns

The Texans have traded for Browns running back Duke Johnson.

The Texans had just Lamar Miller on the roster who had significant NFL carries. Johnson was unhappy and had made it clear he would like to play for another team. The compensation is minimal when you consider Johnson is a solid compliment to Miller and under contract for two seasons after this.

Johnson accounted for 630 total yards and three touchdowns last year for the Browns. He averaged five yards per carry and nine yards per reception. Johnson had 47 catches last year while the Texans had 50 catches from all their running backs. In fact, Johnson would have been behind DeAndre Hopkins in receptions on the team last year.
