With Duke Johnson being active for his 10th game this season, Adam Schefter points out that the conditional 2020 fourth-round pick the Texans traded to the Browns for Johnson will officially become a third-rounder.
Johnson had requested a trade out of Cleveland during the summer, but the Browns waited until the right offer surfaced before trading him to the Texans following the season-ending injury suffered by Lamar Miller.
Johnson, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Browns back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.105 million contract when he agreed to a three-year, $15.6 million extension for the 2018 season.
Johnson stands to make base salaries of $1.8 million and $3.6 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2019, Johnson has appeared in nine games for the Texans and rushed for 287 yards on 54 carries (5.3 YPC) to go along with 22 receptions for 228 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
