His name is Barkley

He is a Duke Johnson and a Zeke Elliot in one.
How could they trade

He's referring to the Duke-Johnson obsessed poster.

I meant a former BBI poster that was convinced not drafting Duke Johnson was going to forever haunt us.
Pretty sure the Duke Johnson guy was a Simo

makes sense since the Texans  
ZogZerg : 8/8/2019 11:18 am : link
are super thin at RB.

What value for CLE

I like what their front office has done.
The Texans just did to Cleveland what  
90.Cal : 8/8/2019 11:34 am : link
Dallas did to Minnesota in the Herschel Walker Trade.

-the Duke Johnson obsessed BBI poster-
Seems like a few posters are pissing on Duke Johnson...  
M.S. : 8/8/2019 11:38 am : link

...maybe because there were a few BBIers who wanted him in Draft way back when, I dunno.

But, whatever.

Fact is he is a very fine multi-purpose running back who was very productive for a team that was as fucked up offensively as much as the Giants.

Not only that, but he was certain Johnson would be much better than Melvin Gordon in particular, and was doing a lot of back-patting when Gordon struggled his rookie year.
actually not a bad trade for Texans  
giants#1 : 8/8/2019 11:46 am : link
especially if you discount the pick for being a year out. He has a very team friendly contract after the Browns eat $1.2M signing bonus too:

2019: $1.8M
2020: $3.6M + $10k workout bonus
2021: $4.65M + $10k workout bonus

Johnson's not an every down workhorse, but he's a valuable player and a very good receiving RB. Put him with a good OC and his #s would be even better. Despite what many believe, it's not easy to get a RB with even his limited ability in the 4th round.
Wow!  
TC : 8/8/2019 12:24 pm : link
You mean the Giants missed out on that!? They may have been able to trade Saquon straight up for him!

I mean, DUKE JOHNSON!!!

The Duke Johnson guy was the John Jerry troll, no?
Texans load up on former UM RBs.

There will be more available after cuts.
The Duke Johnson guy

was also that Miami Hurricanes fan. Wasn't his handle something like - miamihurricansfan or something like that. He gave Canes fans a bad name.

Yeah he was a huge Miami fan and his handle was something like that. He stopped posting when it became clear nobody took him seriously because he was so over the top wrong about almost everything.

I think this is right....
If Duke Johnson gets a conditional 4th,  
81_Great_Dane : 8/8/2019 1:03 pm : link
maybe the Giants can get a 6th for Gallman or a 7th for Perkins, since it's unlikely they keep both. Ryan Grant to the Packers redux.

Why is that unlikely? I think it’s very likely they’ll keep both. Rod Smith is the one getting launched.

That'd work for me.
