Johnson had previously skipped all offseason activities to this point and requested a trade from the Browns after they signed RB Kareem Hunt.
Though at first glance the Browns backfield is crowded with Johnson, Hunt and second-year starter RB Nick Chubb, Hunt is slated to miss the first eight games of the season due to suspension. Dorsey and HC Freddie Kitchens have said multiple times they have a plan to use Johnson this year.
Johnson, 25, 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 2018, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and rushed for 201 yards on 40 carries (5 YPC) to go along with 47 receptions for 429 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
