The Eagles have their eye on a versatile offensive weapon, and might be finding a way to get him in midnight green.
The Eagles have reportedly expressed interest in trading for Browns RB Duke Johnson.
Johnson is a runningback that plays a similar style to Darren Sproles - he can carry the ball and also line up as a slot wide receiver or get the ball on screens. In four seasons with the Browns, Johnson raked up 1,286 rushing yards, 2,170 receiving yards, and 13 total touchdowns.
Before the 2018 season started, Darren Sproles stated it would be his final season, but he has since confirmed he is reconsidering his retirement plans. Reaching out about Johnson's availability might mean the Eagles feel Sproles is leaning more towards retiring , or they might just want to get younger at the position. Johnson only carries a $3 Million cap hit for the 2019 season.
