Browns RB Duke Johnson signs with Rosenhaus Sports

Adam Schefter reports that Johnson signed with Drew Rosenhaus' agency and that he is still seeking a trade. Schefter also gives us some context for Johnson's switch in representation when he tweets, "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."

Johnson wanted out of Cleveland after the Browns signed Kareem Hunt, but the team never budged. We'll see if Rosenhaus can change their minds.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson was an afterthought on the field last season despite his ability and a change of scenery would likely be a boom to his fantasy output. If his new representation can get the Browns to budge on dealing Johnson, his landing spot would dictate his fantasy upside, but there's a good chance his new team would give him more work than the Browns did last season when he saw an anemic 5.4 touches per game.
