Cleveland Browns' running back Duke Johnson has taken his efforts to get out of Cleveland to a new level. Johnson has signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus, of Rosenhaus Sports.

Rosenhaus has a history of helping players get the trades they are looking for, especially when it comes to getting out of Cleveland. He helped facilitate trades from the Browns for both defensive end, Emmanuel Ogbah, and wide receiver, Breshad Perriman.

If Rosenhaus can do the same for his new client, as he has for others in the past, then Johnson should be getting his wish. Here are three teams that would benefit from acquiring Johnson.

The Colts could use more depth at running back behind starter, Marlon Mack. Johnson would be a great fit here, as he'd be able to both serve as a backup to Mack, as well as spelling him on obvious passing downs, a situation where Johnson has flourished in the past.

2. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks haven't been able to find a bell cow back since the departure of Marshawn Lynch a few years ago. While Johnson wouldn't be that guy, he would help them with their running back-by-committee approach. Russell Wilson could use a playmaker out of the backfield in the passing game, and Johnson would be a great fit. He had over 2,000 receiving yards out of the backfield in his four years with Cleveland.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers lack a pass-catching specialist out of the backfield, as well as overall running back depth. In addition to averaging over 500 receiving yards out of the backfield, Johnson is still the University of Miami's all-time leading rusher. He is a multi-dimensional offensive weapon who could help the Bucs' offense in a number of different ways.
