Former Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson visits Florham today


The running back formerly known as CJ2K (though in my eyes still known as CJ1+K4EVER) visited the New York Jets facilities and reportedly had a physical with the team as well. It has been rumored for a while that the Jets and Chris Johnson were mutually interested in a deal going through quickly, everything has been quiet so far. Johnson was reportedly visiting New York for personal reasons but today was the first time he is reported to be meeting with a team.

The question now is will Chris Johnson be a Jet by the end of the day. Considering the fact that he has refused to work out with teams but took a physical with the Jets the only hurdle that is left might be the contract negotiations. As we have seen so far Idzik is a frugal and patient man, and the question will be how much does Johnson want to be in green and white.

Although some say he has fallen off in recent years and is getting up there in years(28) the Jets will look to utilize Johnson in a tandem role with Chris Ivory. With their diverse play styles it will give Mornhinweg more options to make the offense dynamic. Unfortunately for Mike Goodson paired with his legal troubles a Chris Johnson signing will likely signal the end of his days with the Jets.
