Browns’ Duke Johnson Hires Drew Rosenhaus

A couple of days after firing his agent, Browns running back Duke Johnson has new representation. On Thursday, Johnson hired Drew Rosenhaus, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets

Johnson has been pushing to get out of Cleveland and he is expected to continue pursuing a trade. Rosenhaus, one of the NFL’s most powerful agents, has a track record in this area. Specifically, he helped facilitate the trade that sent Emmanuel Ogbah from the Browns to the Chiefs and got Breshad Perriman out of his deal with Cleveland.

Johnson has been an extremely effective pass catcher for the Browns out of the backfield, but their RB picture is clouded by the presence of rising star Nick Chubb and new addition Kareem Hunt, who will join the team after serving a suspension through the first half of the season.

So far, the Browns have not shown a willingness to move Johnson, but things could change if he continues to express his dissatisfaction. The Packers and Buccaneers would both be logical landing spots for him given their needs at running back.

    Rosenhaus will get Duke traded to the Cardinals and then hand representation over to Jerry Maguire.

      Like him or not, Rosenhaus has a long track record of often getting his player clients what they want, whether it’s a better contract or a different team. Rosenhaus at least has a longer time doing this than Kristin Campbell. She might very well be good at her job but maybe Johnson wanted someone with a little more experience in these negotiations, and maybe hope that Rosenhaus makes the Browns afraid Not to trade Duke.
