David Johnson is a “three-down back who has had some very productive years,” said Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien. “The type of guy he is, I’m so excited to have him, Randall Cobb, and Brandin Cooks our locker room.” (Aaron Wilson on Twitter )
Johnson recently passed his physical, clearing the way for him to join the Texans. O’Brien believes he’s a three-down back, and will get plenty of touches in 2020. DJ had a down year in 2019, logging 94 carries for 345 yards to go along with 36 receptions for 370 yards and six total touchdowns (two rushing, four receiving) across 13 games. The 28-year-old will look to bounce back with his new team and is currently 24th among all running backs in the expert consensus rankings.
