Texans claim OT Johnson off waivers from Browns

A day after he was waived by the Cleveland Browns, offensive tackle Roderick Johnson was claimed by Houston, the Texans announced on Wednesday. A fifth-round pick out of Florida State in 2017, Johnson didn't see the field in the regular season with Cleveland, spending his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve with a sprained medial collateral ligament and meniscus damage in his knee. The Browns waived him on Tuesday to make room for Greg Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 who flamed out with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams and was waived midseason last year by the Detroit Lions.

Combine star and former No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson gets another shot with Browns

The thing about being a top-10 pick in the NFL is someone will always believe in you, until they can’t anymore. Greg Robinson was the second overall pick of the 2014 draft, and he has been a bust. The Detroit Lions, who needed a replacement for injured left tackle Taylor Decker early last season, traded for Robinson but he predictably didn’t play well, suffered an ankle injury and the Lions cut him.
