ProCanes (NFL) Notes
Duke Johnson Finds a new Agent
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson parted ways with his agent. On Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Johnson has signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Browns’ RB Duke Johnson signed today with a new agent, @RosenhausSports, per source. Johnson still is expected to seek a trade; keep in mind, Rosenhaus helped facilitate a trade for the Browns and his client, Emmanuel Ogbah, and got Breshad Perriman out of his deal in Cleveland.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 11, 2019
It’s been a busy couple of months for the former Hurricanes running back. Johnson was chided by Browns QB Baker Mayfield after voicing his desire to be traded during Browns’ minicamp.
