Johnson has selected Rosenhaus to handle Johnson’s contractual situation going forward.
The first order of business will be to get the Browns to send Johnson to a new team, given that Johnson is now caught behind Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. The Browns presumably want to keep Johnson until Hunt’s eight-game suspension has ended.
Rosenhaus will now go to work behind the scenes to get Johnson what he wants. Earlier this year, Rosenhaus engineered a trade that sent defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah to Kansas City from Cleveland. More significantly, Rosenhaus somehow got receiver Antonio Brown a new team, and a big raise.
