The Browns appear ready to move on from running back Duke Johnson.
Cleveland is "more than willing to deal" Johnson, according to cleveland.com, which cited multiple unidentified sources, but the team won't make a move unless the right offer is presented with "good compensation."
The Browns signed running back Kareem Hunt on Feb. 11, however, they are still waiting to hear from the NFL about how long his suspension will be for his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident, which cleveland.com notes will be a factor in the Browns' decision on dealing Johnson.
Several teams expressed interest in Johnson earlier this month at the combine, but general manager John Dorsey insisted the running back was not “expendable yet" and he’s “absolutely’’ committed to Johnson, despite Hunt's signing. Cleveland.com, however, reports that Dorsey is now willing to shop the 2015 third-rounder.
Johnson reportedly was frustrated with his role with the Browns in 2018 as he had just 201 rushing yards and didn't have a rushing touchdown.
