Draft Scout Chris Johnson News
09/04/16 - RB Chris Johnson averaged 4.3 yards per carry last season (for 814 total yards) before a cracked tibia ended his season prematurely. Though he turns 31 this season, the former 2,000-yard rusher for the Titans promises he has much, much more to give this year after recovering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder in the spring of 2015. "I think I'm way better than last year," he said. "I was coming back last year from being shot, not being in shape. Now, I'm in shape. I can use my hand a lot more."
03/17/16 - RB Chris Johnson has decided to remain with the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals announced Thursday that they agreed to terms with Johnson on a one-year contract. Johnson visited Miami on Wednesday, but the Dolphins failed to lure him away from Arizona. He ran for 814 yards and three touchdowns on 196 carries in 11 games last season for the Cardinals, including four 100-yard games, before he suffered a fractured tibia in December.
03/16/16 - RB Chris Johnson, an unrestricted free agent, was visiting with the Dolphins after the team missed out on C.J. Anderson.
The Dolphins lost former starter Lamar Miller to the Texans in free agency and had signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million offer sheet last week. But the Broncos matched Anderson's deal on Tuesday, keeping the running back in Denver.
Johnson, 30, is a four-time Pro Bowl selection entering his ninth season. He suffered a fractured left tibia in Week 12 with the Cardinals last season. He rushed for 814 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. Johnson, given the nickname "CJ2K" after rushing for 2,006 yards for Tennessee in 2009, rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first six NFL seasons with the Titans.
