Duke Johnson’s running back was released by the Houston Texans on Friday.
According to reports, Johnson was given up by the Texas people as he tried to completely dodge the $ 5,025,000 salary cap that hit 2021, the final year of his three-year contract with the team.
27-year-old Johnson signed a three-year, $ 15.6 million deal in 2018 after four seasons with Cleveland Browns.
In 2021, salaries were $ 4,650,000, roster bonuses were $ 275,000, and training bonuses were $ 100,000, according to Spotrac.
Houston’s backfield composition is fluid with quarterback Deshaun Watson demanding a trade. Running backs are in the extreme sales position of recent years, with Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue, David Johnson and Duke Johnson among the players the franchise has focused on over the last three seasons.
David Johnson, acquired from Arizona Cardinals in a DeAndre Hopkins deal in 2020, will turn 30 in December. According to Spotrack, he is the final year of a three-year $ 39 million deal with the Cardinals, with a cap hit of $ 88.12 million.
