Yes, the King does it again. Fleecing the opposition in trade value. We will take the 4th rounder. Doubt we get the 3rd.

Duke will not see much playing time looking at their rb/wr depth.

I'm bummed we couldn't make more use of his obvious talent. He was being a turd towards the end of last year and this off-season, but I understand why and really don't hold it against him. Guy has talent and needs to put it on display if he's gonna get that paycheck. RBs are short shelf life pieces.

Oh for sure there is zero doubt you have a lot more football acumen than Bill O'Brien. No doubt in my mind at all.

And catching RB's that see limited snaps but lead various stats for receptions and are active for every game in their career .... for sure a dime a dozen.

The value of the pick was greater than what Duke Johnson was going to give us on the field as a backup. This is a really good trade for us and Duke Johnson but probably not the Texans.

When we went to that 3 RB backfield I was really impressed with Hilliard. Heís shifty and falls forward

He just needs to be active for 10 games. The number of snaps or touches does not mean anything. He was active all 16 games a season while he was here. I don't think they give up a mid round pick for someone they plan on having inactive for 7+ games.

A big injury is the only way I see it staying a 4th.

Personally I really liked Duke Johnson. I always thought of him more of a specialty back, but he doesn't want to be that anymore. So he got his wish, he's gone. Too bad, I'll miss him.

Duke was a reliable RB in a offense closer to a CFL roster.
Kizer...Louis give me a break.
somebody had to catch check down passes in that offense.
funny how 2 RBs in the last few weeks were moved off rosters that caught alot of passes.
trust me DJ wasnt exactly installing fear opposing defenses when he was a Brown.
if he was all that how come he was never returning kickoffs.?

j/c:

My first thought was a response from a certain poster who when he heard the Browns might be looking to trade Duke said it was "Stupid."

Some other thoughts:

--It's probably best that Duke was moved. There was the Browns leaking they were looking to trade him; there was his asking for a trade; there was the Baker mouth thing; the hiring of Drew, etc.

--I liked Duke as a player. I disagree w/others in that he wasn't used properly. I thought he was used about perfectly when Pet and Hue were calling the shots. His usage decreased last year under Haley and Freddie. Freddie is still here.

--I'm surprised we got this much in return for Duke. It's almost unheard of. That leads me to this...

--Dorsey is like a predator. He abuses the weak. He took advantage of the moron Gettleman, the chaos in the GB FO last year, the BS between Gase and Landry in Miami, and now a Houston team that doesn't currently have a GM.

K ... just wanted to make sure ...

Man ... can u believe what KJ got for him ...

KJ did better than he did getting OBJ ... didnít think that was possible ... *L* ...

Man ... i didnít wanna trade for OBJ cause i thought heíd cost to much ... then i didnít wanna trade Duke cause i didnít think weíd get enough ... now iím thrilled with both as KJ said ... donít ever doubt me again .... *L* ...

I'd expect we fill in Duke Johnson's roster spot with a veteran back that can come into camp and learn things quickly. Someone like Jacquizz Rodgers or Charcandrick West makes sense.

We also have a bunch of defensive linemen dinged up so I wouldn't be surprised if we brought in someone to that position group.

West might be an option given his skill set and ties with Dorsey

Duke wanted out so he's out. Works for me. I liked what Baker said. The train is moving, either you want to be aboard or you can get gone. I wish him luck except when they play us but I'm not shedding any tears. He was a moderately good back catching the ball. An every-down runner he was not.

We have Chubb and we have Hunt after the first 8 games. That is one hell of a combo. I'm sure if they think they need another veteran Dorsey will be on the phone tonight about getting one. He is not afraid to make moves.

Certainly not a fan of letting Duke Johnson leave, I look at it as,

It's just one more player on the list of guys who won't score any TD's for the Browns, yet might have.

Oh Well, I hate when good players are let go.

Good trade. I figured a 4th or 5th....possible 3rd, great move


The terms sound like it is where the Texans finish over what Duke does. If they finish high in the standing, we get a 4th. If they finish low, we get a 3rd.

Where that break point is, I couldn't say.

It becomes a third if he's active for 10 games.

Duke will get plenty of playing time.. Miller had a good year but is getting olde... texans 2nd and 3rd string WRs. Can't stay healthy... I'd be floored if we don't get a third.... only way we do t is if he gets hurt...

We got about what I'd thought we'd get if someone got desperate without having to wait for someone to get desperate.

It would have been nice to have him while Hunt is out but you can't blame the sweatshirt for pulling the trigger.

If TJ Yeldon is cut from buffalo (has Gore, Singletary, and Shady in front of him) I'm jumping over him...He can run and catch, and ran well considering that Jags line was a mess...plus hes young and doesnt have a lot of tread on his tires. Though I know both him and Fournette were called out for being knuckleheads late in the year when that team was a dumpster fire.
