Does Kareem Hunts suspension make a Duke Johnson trade less likely?

Does Kareem Hunts suspension make a Duke Johnson trade less likely?

The NFL on Friday morning officially suspended Browns running back Kareem Hunt for eight games. Hunt will not appeal.A 

So Cleveland will be without him for half of the 2019 season. And now that theya€™re actually playoff contenders, maybe this means running back Duke Johnson wona€™t be as available as we thought.A 

My guess is it will now be a little harder for the Eagles to trade for Johnson if thata€™s what they want to do.A 

Johnson would make a lot of sense for the Eagles as a trade target this offseason. He is just 25 and has a base salary of just $1.8 million in 2019. He became unhappy with his role last season and that wasA beforeA the addition of Hunt.A 

Johnson would be a perfect replacement for Darren Sproles as a pass-catching running back in the Eaglesa€™ rotation. And trading for a running back wouldna€™t affect the compensatory pick formula. It seems like that is really important to the Eagles these days.A 

On Thursday,A Cleveland.comA reported the Browns were shopping Johnson and at least three teams were interested. But that report also said the length of Hunta€™s suspension would impact their decision.A
