  Browns | Duke Johnson not at workouts    Thu Apr 18, 06:37 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson has not been present for offseason workouts this week, and general manager John Dorsey said he is not sure if Johnson will participate in the minicamp next week.

Footballguys view: Johnson may want to be traded away after the team added Kareem Hunt, but the Browns don't have to do that right now. We imagine Johnson plays elsewhere in 2019 as there's no much room for him in the backfield when Hunt is back from his 8-game suspension. Stay tuned.

  Browns | GM praises Duke Johnson    Thu Apr 18, 12:06 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson drew praise Thursday, April 18, from general manager John Dorsey. 'I keep telling you all, Duke's a very talented player,' Dorsey said at a news conference. 'He's a member of this organization moving forward. He understands the role he's going to play within this offense.'

Footballguys view: Johnson is a talented player but there's not much room for him with the Browns. He could work as a pass-catching back behind starter Nick Chubb...that is until Kareem Hunt returns from his 8-game suspension. We should see Johnson traded at some point.

  Browns | Nick Chubb to remain the starter?    Sun Apr 7, 10:31 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is likely to remain the starter in 2019 even after RB Kareem Hunt is eligible to return from his eight-game suspension, in the opinion of beat writer Scott Petrak.

Footballguys view: Hunt is going to miss half the season, so Chubb is the starter at least at the beginning of the year. We'll see what kind of shape Hunt is in when he comes back to the team mid-season. Chubb earned the team's trust with a strong rookie year, but Hunt could be the starter in 2020.

  Browns | Duke Johnson generating trade interest    Tue Apr 2, 01:28 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson has been the subject of calls from teams exploring a possible trade, but the compensation offers haven't yet interested the Browns, who are determined to 'not just give him away.'

Footballguys view: The Browns are not going to give Johnson away but they will likely trade him at some point this offseason. The pass-catching veteran could be productive with most any team out there. The Browns have Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt (after his 8-game suspension) to carry the load at the running back position in 2019.

  Browns | Duke Johnson asks to be traded    Mon Apr 1, 05:47 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson's representatives have asked the Browns to trade him, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns have Nick Chubb as the lead back and they'll be getting Kareem Hunt after he serves his 8-game suspension so there's no need for Johnson at that point. Johnson did not attend voluntary workouts Monday, April 1, and the New York Jets, Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles have already shown interest in Johnson.

  Browns | Duke Johnson not being shopped    Wed Mar 27, 05:40 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is staying put as the Browns have seemingly cooled on trade talks for their pass-catching running back. Head coach Freddie Kitchens said Johnson is a good football player and will have a role with the Browns.

Footballguys view: Johnson should have a role with the Browns as a pass-catching running back. Once Kareem Hunt serves his 8-game suspension, Johnson's role could dwindle to little or nothing. Trade talks may have cooled down now for Johnson but they could heat back up around the trade deadline.

  Browns | Odell Beckham should report     Wed Mar 27, 05:32 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to show up for the start of Cleveland's offseason program Monday, April 1. Beckham had planned to end his offseason by April 15 before being traded to the Browns.

Footballguys view: The Browns get to start a week early because they hired a new head coach. Beckham is the no.1 wideout for the Browns with college teammate Jarvis Landry working alongside him. With Baker Mayfield running the show, the Browns have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL.

  Browns | Bryan Witzmann signs with Cleveland    Fri Mar 22, 12:13 PM

Free-agent OL Bryan Witzmann (Bears) signed Friday, March 22, with the Cleveland Browns. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Footballguys view: Witzmann filled in for Kyle Long last year at guard and he was a starting tackle for Kansas City in 2017 before he was beat out by Cam Erving. He has versatility and will be a solid backup, but Witzmann is the type that is a weak link if he ends up on the field for an extended time.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt will not appeal    Fri Mar 15, 10:10 AM

Updating an immediate report, Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will not appeal his eight-game suspension.

Footballguys view: Hunt will serve the suspension and miss half of the 2019 season. The Browns will use Nick Chubb as their featured back and Duke Johnson Jr. should stay on board as a change-of-pace back. Once Hunt is off the suspension list, there is a sentiment the team could move on from Johnson. Hunt will give them fresh legs for what could be a deep playoff run in 2019.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt suspended eight games    Fri Mar 15, 10:07 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt was suspended eight games Friday, March 15, for violating the personal conduct policy, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Are the Browns Super Bowl contenders after this move? That's not an outlandish question given the talent the Browns have on both sides of the ball. They'll be an exciting offense and Fantasy GMs should be stacking with Cleveland players in 2019. It feels weird just thinking that but it's true -- the Browns are loaded.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was acquired by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, March 12, in exchange for a 2019 first-round pick, the Browns' second third-round pick in 2019 and SS Jabrill Peppers according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns get a great deal here for a 26-year old receiver in his prime. Beckham is under contract after just getting a new deal less than a year ago. He gets to reunite with former college teammate Jarvis Landry and create a dynamic duo at the wide receiver position. Baker Mayfield gets another great weapon to throw to...and oh yeah, they also have TE David Njoku, RB Kareem Hunt and RB Nick Chubb. This team should be a fantasy darling in 2019.
