Relationship Status

It seems like Duke Jhonson is focused on his game only, he is young and strong and there is no previous record of Duke about his marriage, affairs, and engagement.

 He loved his parents very much and his father's death was so hard for him because he was just 14 at that time and at the same time his mother got another marriage but his love for his mom never faded away. He has made a tattoo on his soldier to give tribute to his mother.

Trade war between the NFL Clubs for Duke 

It was the 2015 NFL draft, the Dallas Cowboys need to have a running back and Darren McFadden was picked up by cowboys to fulfill their need but they know that's just not enough for the team and one name consistently connected with cowboys was Duke Johnson.

Dallas couldn't pass up the chance to select the most talented pass rusher in the class with pick No. 60 and Johnson was selected 17 picks later by the Cleveland Browns.

Four years later, the Cowboys again tried to acquire Johnson after he got transferred to Houston Texans and still the trade rumor is surrounded around Duke so in response to this kind of rumor Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said:

"I don’t know where all this trade talk started happening. People just assumed that we are going to trade him because we signed another good football player. Me, personally, I like good football players and I like as many of them as we can get."

Johnson was traded to the Houston Texans on  August 8, 2019, for a conditional 2020 fourth-round pick that can become a third-round pick if active on the Texans roster for 10 games.
