David Johnson and a second-round have been traded to the Houston Texans from the Arizona Cardinals for a second-round pick and DeAndre Hopkins per a report from Ian Rapoport. Houston takes on some of his salary, but not all.
DeAndre Hopkins joins young quarterback Kyler Murray in Arizona and offensive guru Kliff Kingsbury. Hopkins has tallied over 1,000 receiving yards in five of the last six seasons and will aid the young quarterback greatly. He has been an All-Pro in each of the last three seasons.
David Johnson has struggled to remain healthy the past two seasons, but Johnson has been an excellent all-around back for the Cardinals since entering the league. Last time Johnson played healthy, he had over 2,000 rushing and receiving yards combined. Unfortunately, that was four years ago in 2016.
David Johnson traded to the Houston Texans makes sense since both Carlos Hyde and Lamar Miller are unrestricted free agents as well. David Johnson will probably share time with their other receiving running back Duke Johnson.
