Report: Duke Johnson parts ways with agent Kristin Campbell

Browns running back Duke Johnson requested a trade earlier this year, but the Browns have shown no sign that they’re willing to move him ahead of the 2019 season.

Johnson may be plotting a different course with training camp set to start in the near future. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Johnson has parted ways with agent Kristin Campbell and is currently without new representation.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was critical of Johnson’s trade request, but Johnson said he doesn’t concern himself with such reactions. Campbell’s husband Luther, best known as Uncle Luke from his days with 2 Live Crew, had a different reaction as he sent a tweet that said “f–k Baker Mayfield for saying that dumb s–t” about Johnson.”

No reason was given for the split between Johnson and Campbell, so we’ll have to wait to find out if Johnson has had a change of heart or if he feels a different agent may be able to help get him out of Cleveland.

  1. We’ve all had to deal with an 80’s real estate mogul putting his 2 cents in regarding everything under the sun for the past several years. You can deal with this.

  2. Wonder if Duke’s value to the Browns is constantly changing because Kareem Hunt can’t stay out of fights. The Browns have made it perfectly clear though that if all players are healthy and available, Duke is #3 at best.

    We civilians can say that “it’s a business” all we want, but I know I’d be frustrated if my boss made it clear I wasn’t valued and then wouldn’t let me leave.

  4. The Browns are actually being smart her…they are holding on to him till the injuries start in Aug and Sept….THEN he gets traded for some value. Right now he doesnt have value.

  5. “I know I’d be frustrated if my boss made it clear I wasn’t valued and then wouldn’t let me leave.”

    Believe he’s getting paid over a million dollars this season plus whatever portion of his signing bonus applied. That’s hardly “wasn’t valued”
