When the Cleveland Browns opened their mandatory mini-camp on Tuesday, I was surprised to see disgruntled running back Duke Johnson in attendance.
To be clear, I wasn’t assuming he’d skip these sessions in protest after requesting a trade a few months ago. I just figured the Browns would’ve moved him well before mini-camp even began.
They didn’t, instead insisting he was a key part of the team and assuming he’d arrive without any issues.
