Texans release RB Duke Johnson

The Houston Texans continue to make moves to their roster as they enter free agency.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Texans released running back Duke Johnson.

The former Cleveland Browns running back provided the Texans with 160 rushes for 645 yards and three touchdowns. Johnson also caught 28 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown.

2020 was Johnson’s worst year in terms of availability with 11 games played after playing a full 16-game complement in each of his previous five seasons.

Johnson had no guaranteed money on his contract for 2021, and was set to cost the salary cap-strapped Texans $5.025 million.

The Texans re-signed a former Browns running back in Dontrell Hilliard, who is primarily a special teams contributor.
