Browns RB skips voluntary OTAs on Monday
Duke Johnson’s reps have asked the Browns to trade him, a league source told cleveland.com.
The Jets, Texans and Eagles have all been interested in Johnson ever since the Browns signed running back Kareem Hunt in February, a league source said. Other teams have inquired as well. In what appears to be a statement about not wanting to be here, Johnson was a no-show for the Browns’ voluntary offseason program Monday, coach Freddie Kitchens said. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
Nerdy Football Analysis: After being underutilized the majority of last season (only 87 touches) and seeing Kareem Hunt added this off-season, it appears Duke has had enough. There simply aren’t enough footballs to go around with all the mouths to feed in Cleveland.
