Arizona Cardinals GM Says Team Isn’t Going to Release RB David Johnson

The Cardinals would love to see running back David Johnson return to the form from a few years back, but even if he doesn’t at this point the team is not ready to give up on the veteran.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim made it clear Friday during an appearance on 98.7 FM in Phoenix that Johnson is not going anywhere and will stay on the team’s roster for 2020.

“Cutting him is not an option,” Keim said.

The contract the Cardinals had Johnson sign on the eve of the 2018 season makes it financially prohibitive to do so. Johnson carries a cap hit of slightly more than $14 million this season if he remains on the roster, while he’ll account for even more in dead cap space — $16.2 million, to be exact — if he’s released.
