Chris Johnson is free to talk to teams after his release by the Tennessee Titans and it sounds like he will be heading to New York to visit with the teams out there. He will stop and visit with the New York Jets first and then will make a visit with the New York Giants, according to Erika Esola. (Not the biggest name for a source, but she is a journalist based out of Florida. The guys over at Gang Green Nation have been hearing the same thing as well.)
The Jets will be the first team to get a shot at signing the speedy running back. When DeSean Jackson became a free agent, he went out to visit the Washington Redskins and he didn’t leave without a contract. The Jets will be looking to make that same move with Johnson.
The Jets have been making moves this offseason to improve their offense. They signed Eric Decker and Michael Vick onto the roster and are looking to add Johnson onto that list. Johnson still has that threat of breaking loose for the home run, but he has not shown the ability to be that 2000 rusher since his sophomore year in the league. It would be an interesting fit in New York.
