The Texans released RB Duke Johnson, saving about $5 million against the 2021 salary cap. Johnson sputtered to career-low 3.1 yards per carry this past season, although he still averaged a strong 8.9 yards on 28 grabs. He was never more than a role player for the Texans, though, reaching 15 touches in a game just once. Johnson has now played for multiple NFL coaching staffs, and none have deemed him more than a change-of-pace back. We'll see where he lands, but it'd be unwise to expect his role to change much on his new team.
