The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including the Eagles still being interested in Duke Johnson.
Over the past two months, Johnson’s name has been brought up in many trade rumors. After the Browns signed Kareem Hunt in February, Johnson was put on the team’s chopping block. With Hunt and Nick Chubb on the roster, it will be hard for Johnson to play consistent snaps next season.
Because of his name being floated in trade talks, Johnson decided to not participate in the first phase of the Browns’ off-season program. Instead, he reportedly requested a trade.

"Even after acquiring Howard, it appears the Eagles are still eyeing Johnson, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter told 97.5 The Fanatic on Wednesday that the Eagles remain in talks with Cleveland."
Howard being traded to the Eagles for a 2020 sixth-round pick potentially set the market for what the Browns could receive in a Johnson trade. But even if it is not the Eagles, it seems extremely unlikely Johnson will be a Brown following the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Cleveland Browns have not been too busy re-signing their own players, but decided Wednesday to bring back tight end/fullback Orson Charles. Elliot Kennel believes it was a smart move by the Browns because of what Charles can do for the running game.
"With Mayfield emerging as a leader for the offense and Landry and Beckham Jr. combining their forces with the productivity of Nick Chubb carrying the ball out of the backfield, there is a palpable excitement level in Cleveland, and that was evident to the newest member of the Browns."
Odell Beckham Jr. has dealt with a lot of criticism over the past couple of seasons, including from fans of the New York Giants. As he moves to the Browns, there is no doubt the Dawg Pound will welcome him with open arms.
