Freddie Kitchens Unfazed By Duke Johnson\'s Trade Request 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Apr 29, 2019 12:38 pm

Duke Johnson didn\'t report to offseason workouts with the Cleveland Browns last month and has reportedly requested a trade.

This year\'s NFL Draft came and went without the Browns moving Johnson, who likely will have a reduced role with new acquisitions Kareem Hunt and Odell Beckham in the fold.

\"Duke is under contract. I have said this for like a month now, I don\'t know where all this trade talk started happening,\" Freddie Kitchens said. \"People just assumed that we are going to trade him because we signed another good football player. Me, personally, I like good football players and I like as many of them as we can get.

\"Duke Johnson is on this football team, Duke Johnson will have a vital role in this football team and Duke Johnson will help us win football games. Am I surprised that he\'s still here? No, not one bit. I haven\'t wavered and never said anything different other than that.\"
