Could running back Duke Johnson be on the trade block?

After the Browns signed Kareem Hunt on Feb. 11, the team said Johnson was staying put for the time being. However, Cleveland.com reported that at least three teams have expressed interest in trading for Johnson while team representatives are at the combine this week.

General manager John Dorsey reiterated that stance at the combine, though the report noted that if the right trade came along, like for a third-round pick, Johnson will be moved.

The main reason the Browns will likey hold on to Johnson for the time being is because they don't know how long Hunt will be suspended for his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident.

NFL trade rumors: Giants send linebacker Olivier Vernon to Browns

NFL trade rumors: Giants send linebacker Olivier Vernon to Browns Vernon signed a five-year, $85 million with the Giants in 2016 and is still due $15.25 million in base salary for the 2019 and 2020 season.

Should Johnson become available, the team that snags him will have a versatile tailback who can also double as a receiver.

Reports have surfaced that Johnson was frustrated with his role with the Browns last season, which saw him have just 201 rushing yards and no rushing touchdowns. He also recorded 429 receiving yards for three touchdowns.

It's a far cry from his 1,041 total offensive yards and seven touchdowns from 2017.
