    What will happen when Kareem Hunt is activated?"Coming out of high school Antonio Callaway Jersey Stitched , Johnson was the number one RB according to rivals.com and won a state football championship. He also ran track as a sprinter and long jumper. He was named Florida’s Mr. Football. He then went to the University of Miami and started as a freshman gaining 947 yards with 10 TDs and named ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year. From there, Johnson gained 920 yards and then 1,652 yards his junior season. He totaled 30 TDs for his career and had 69 receptions for 719 yards. Following his junior year, he was named First-Team All-ACC. Johnson’s best 40-time was 4.51. Running backs taken before him in the 2015 draft include Todd Gurley (Rams), Melvin Gordon (Chargers), T.J. Yeldon (Jaguars), Ameer Abdullah (Lions) and Tevin Coleman (Falcons). In his four-year tenure with the Browns, Johnson has gained only 1,286 yards on 299 carries with five rushing TDs and eight receiving TDs. As evidenced by his receiving skills in college, he has also contributed 2,170 receiving yards on 235 receptions. Johnson has only lost three fumbles. Just last season the Browns signed Johnson to a three-year, $15.6 million dollar extension as his rookie contract was coming up for expiration. That in itself showed that the club valued his services especially in the passing game. But he had a paltry 40 carries last year only eclipsed by his 47 receptions. However Youth Austin Corbett Jersey , his averages are 5.0 per rushing attempt and 9.1 per reception. Needless to say, Johnson felt under-utilized as a running back. And then came the Hunt signing. Johnson is a solid blocker and a QB’s best friend as an outlet receiver and able to take on bigger rushing LBs and safeties.Immediately after hearing the news that Johnson wished to be traded, several clubs inquired about his availability including the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Houston Texans. Since then, the Jets have signed former Pittsburgh Steeler La’Veon Bell to a monster contract. The only RB the Texans have signed is Josh Ferguson to a reserve/futures contract while the Eagles have not signed a single RB.So what did Dorsey say about Johnson’s request to be traded? Did that change his outlook on Johnson’s role with the current Browns offense? This is what Dorsey said in the pre-draft press conference:Dorsey admitted that he has not actually talked to Johnson and that the player has not attended any team functions in the Browns’ facility since last season. Dorsey did say that Kitchens has been in contact with Ms. Campbell on several occasions, mostly via text messages. Dorsey did mention that Hunt has been a mainstay at the facility in workouts. Johnson’s cap number is a mere $3.05 million for the 2019 season. If he is traded before June 1, the Browns will end up with $2.25 million of that in dead money. Essentially, the club would receive a $800,000 savings. However, if Dorsey trades Johnson after June 1, the dead money drops to $750,000 while the savings escalates to a receptive $2.3 million. The NFL trade deadline is always at the end of October. Hunt will be activated prior to the Week 9 game November 3 on the road against the Denver Broncos. Squeaky coincidence? Former NFL lineman Geoff Schwarz says that moving to a new position is not as simple as fans want it to be."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Daily Dawg ChowRufio’s PlaybookAustin Corbett switching to guard may not be so easyNew Austin Corbett Jersey Stitched ,73commentsFormer NFL lineman Geoff Schwarz says that moving to a new position is not as simple as fans want it to be.EDTShareTweetShareShareAustin Corbett switching to guard may not be so easyScott R. Galvin-USA TODAY SportsIt has been a long-held believe that people should avoid the topics of politics and religion when talking with friends or co-workers.Fans of the Cleveland Browns may want to add another topic to that list - the impending elevation of Austin Corbett as the team’s starting right guard.Corbett, a second-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, is slated to be the first man up to replace Kevin Zeitler at the position. Zeitler, arguably the league’s best player at the position, was part of the trade that brought defensive end Olivier Vernon to the Browns from the New York Giants.Browns fans have downplayed the loss of Zeitler with three primary talking points:Rushing the opposing team’s quarterback is more important that protecting your own team’s quarterback.Corbett will be fine simply because he was drafted by general manager John Dorsey, who has reached the status of being infallible in Cleveland.Switching positions at the NFL level is “no big deal,” so nothing to see here.There is certainly some validity to the first two points. The Browns defense needed help along the defensive line, especially after seeing the major drop-off in the level of play last season whenever the starters were not on the field.Dorsey has also built of plenty of goodwill during his time in Berea, so adopting an “In Dorsey We Trust” rubber stamp for every single decision he makes is understandable.But it is the last one that should give Browns fans pause. Corbett spent his four-year college career playing left tackle. While he was “projected” to be a player who could move to guard or center in the NFL, he spent all of the 2018 preseason at left guard and looked, if we are being polite, less than ready.Complicating matters is that the Browns are asking Corbett to move from the left side to the right Youth Baker Mayfield Jersey , which is not as simple as fans want pretend. That is a topic addressed by Geoff Schwartz, who spent six years playing offensive line in the NFL for four different teams. In his weekly mailbag column, Schwartz was asked a question that is very pertinent to the current situation with the Browns: “What is the most difficult position switch for an offensive lineman to make on the O-line that the majority of people think is easy?”Schwartz’ answer?This isn’t to imply that Corbett can’t make the move and make it successfully. Every situation is different, after all. Rather, it is a reminder that the move may not be seamless and, as Schwartz points out, there is going to be an adjustment period for Corbett. (Quarterback Baker Mayfield certainly hopes that adjustment period is brief.)The good news is that the Browns and Corbett currently have time on their side, with a full off-season, training camp and the preseason to get Corbett up to speed and for the coaching staff to figure out how to help him when he struggles. Corbett may never be as good as Zeitler, but that doesn’t mean that over time he can’t become good enough to hold down the position for the next decade.
