Awesome pickup, finally a RB that can catch the ball AND is good in pass pro.
Where did you get this from? Browns website still says "undisclosed"For a 4th rd pick .
Don't you mean which individual in the GM committee handled the call and did the negotiating with the Browns on behalf of the Texans ?Awesome pickup, finally a RB that can catch the ball AND is good in pass pro.
Wonder who they called to make the trade?
100% was expecting him to be back if the jags ended up cutting him.Awesome! Never thought they would to be honest. I was expecting Blue to come through the doors of NRG.

This was a while back and I’ve been silent for a bit around this area. Ecstatic about this pickup. Duke may very well be more beneficial to us than Lamar. Great day for our running back room.I still want Houston to make a move for Duke Johnson. I know and have worked with Duke and he just needs an opportunity for more touches.
Adding Duke Johnson to the Texans is a test of scheme vs talent. Texans have thrown to RBs at low rate, but Duke's addition should pump that up.
Miller/Blue: 1,988 snaps, 116 targets (5.8% target rate)
Johnson: 1,026 snaps, 155 targets (15.1% target rate)

Unless something drastically changes in the #Texans O, Duke Johnson will help but he will not be the 70+ target or 50+ catch back here. He will help the O no doubt with his presence but hard to see that production.

If you want max value, you don’t wait until another RB gets hurt. You trade the player to a team that doesn’t have a GM.
John Dorsey is playing chess.

That's in large part due to Brady and then in last few years Gronk. Watson is good but he's not at Brady's level and Gronk is to TEs what JJ is to defense. In short the Pats haven't needed to rely on RBs except to give Brady a break and change things up a bit.One thing I've noticed is that even though the purports to use the new England spread ep system, he is extremely reliant on RBs.
Very much unlike how the Pats do things.
