Rumor: Chris Johnson to Choose Team by Mid-Week


Well, the Jets can’t contact Mr. 2K just yet…..

Chris Johnson was not included on the transaction report on Friday afternoon, so technically, Johnson is still a member of the Tennessee Titans. Any contact by John Idzik or any other team representative would be the equivalent of tampering. So, no movement on this situation will occur until after Monday afternoon at 4 PM.

But, if the rumor is true, we won’t have to wait too long to learn Chris Johnson’s next destination.

According to Mike Florio, Johnson is going to make his decision about his next team by the middle of the week. It is til then that we won’t know anything about his chances of going to the Jets until after 4 PM on Monday.

But after that it won’t take very long. Chris Johnson would be here in a complimentary role to Chris Ivory, but is still a lethal guy, and a durable one. He has only missed one game in six seasons, and has rushed for over 1,000 yards each year.

Chris is an excellent pass catcher as well, so he would make a great fit.
