When the Cardinals traded David Johnson and a couple of picks in a deal that landed them star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins from the Houston Texans, it was overwhelmingly viewed as a steal for Arizona.
Johnson, once a huge star in his own right, spent much of the last two seasons dealing with injuries and subsequent underwhelming performances.
If able to return to his 2016 form, Johnson can be one of, if not the, best running backs in football, especially from a fantasy perspective where he contributes heavily in both the rushing and receiving game. This would certainly make the trade easier to swallow for Texans fans.
Fast forward to now and Johnson is reportedly healthy and ready for a huge comeback campaign in 2020. He's so excited that he recently took to instagram to show off what he looks like in his brand new threads.
Johnson seems excited for the fresh start and new opportunity with a team that was desperately in need of a true long-term answer at running back.
