D'Ernest Johnson

Browns tender D’Ernest Johnson

The Cleveland Browns have tendered restricted free agent running back D’Ernest Johnson with the right of first refusal number. The amount is just over $2.4 million and Cleveland can match any offer made to Johnson.

D’Ernest Johnson has appeared in 49 games with the Browns, but saw the most action last season. Johnson was thrust into action when Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt were not available, rushing 100 times for 534 yards and three touchdowns in addition to 19 receptions for 137 yards. There will be suitors for Johnson as he displayed he can contribute in the running game and being a third running back in Cleveland will not result in amount of playing time he should be receiving.
