Pick Browns got in deal for RB Johnson escalates

Pick Browns got in deal for RB Johnson escalates … Thanks to sharp-eyed reader Dave W. for noting that the conditional 4th round pick Cleveland acquired when they traded RB Duke Johnson to Houston will escalate to a 3rd rounder. As per the original agreement, the pick would escalate to a 3rd rounder if Johnson played in 10 games this fall and he recently met that criterion. It appears, though, that the Browns will actually end up with Seattle’s 3rd rounder to complete the deal. Since the trade was consummated, Houston traded their 3rd round pick to Oakland for CB Gareon Conley, but acquired a #3 from Seattle in the Jadeveon Clowney trade earlier this year.
