Cleveland Browns should tender D'Ernest Johnson



Article Summary:

D’Ernest Johnson is a Restricted Free Agent, so the Cleveland Browns have a right of first refusal if they extend a tender of $2.43 million, a classic no-brainer.

For 2022, according to, values of the four types of tenders are as follows:

Right of 1st Refusal Only Tender: $2,433,000Original Draft Round Tender: $2,540,0002nd Round Tender: $3,986,0001st Round Tender: $5,432,000

A first-round tender means that the new team would have to give the Browns a first-round pick, plus pay Johnson at least $5.4 million.

If Johnson signs with another team, the Browns can match that offer, and Johnson remains in Cleveland.

Can the Cleveland Browns afford all their running backs?

There has been some thought this off-season that the Browns may not be able to afford to carry superstar Nick Chubb plus Kareem Hunt at $6.0 million plus a hefty new deal for third-string Johnson.
