JETS SIGN CHRIS JOHNSON TO A TWO YEAR DEAL:
The New York Jets sign former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson to a two year deal, according ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Johnson who went underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus this offseason, is looking forward to a fresh start and proving doubters wrong with the Jets.
"I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder," Johnson told The Tennessean’s Jim Wyatt after the signing. "I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me."
Johnson is coming off career low 3.9 yds per carry, but the durable back still rushed for over 1,077 yards last season. CJ2K has never had a season where he did not rush for over 1,000 yards in his six years in the NFL.
The signing of Johnson should help open up Jets passing attack because Johnson excelled at that last season for the Titans. Johnson had 8.2 yards per catch, 343 yards receiving, and 4 TDs.
