Browns’ Duke Johnson hires super agent Drew Rosenhaus amid trade demandsBy Amber Lee
Browns’ RB Duke Johnson signed today with a new agent, @RosenhausSports, per source. Johnson still is expected to seek a trade; 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.

Despite taking a massive leap towards respectability of late, it seems things aren’t all peaches and gravy in Cleveland.
Just two days after it was reported that Browns running back Duke Johnson parted ways with his agent, sports attorney Kristin Campbell, ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported he signed with super agent Drew Rosenhaus.
“Johnson still is expected to seek a trade,” Schefter tweeted. “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.”
It’s no secret that Johnson wants out of Cleveland. His future with the team was put in doubt when the Browns signed Kareem Hunt, who had been cut months earlier by the Kansas City Chiefs after a disturbing assault video came to light.
Johnson skipped the team’s entire voluntary offseason workout program, which began April 1, and didn’t report to Browns headquarters until early June when players showed up for their three-day mandatory minicamp.
Two months later at minicamp, Johnson insisted he still wanted to be traded and nothing would change his mind.
“I only want to be somewhere I’m wanted,” said Johnson, who signed a three-year, $15.6 million contract extension with the Dorsey-led Browns about a year ago. “At the end of the day, that’s all this is about, being somewhere you’re wanted.”
