Coach Rex Ryan told reporters Monday the Jets made no promises about Chris Johnson's 2014 workload before signing him. Mon, Apr 21 Rotoworld
Johnson has no concerns about whether his surgically repaired knee will be healthy in time for training camp or how the New York Jets will split carries in their backfield. The former 2,000-yard rusher said Thursday during a conference call that his left knee is "getting better and better" every day and says he's "pretty close" after having a torn meniscus repaired after last season. He added that a report suggesting he has arthritis in the knee is "not accurate.". Fri, Apr 18 Stats Inc.

RB Chris Johnson signed a two-year deal with the New York Jets. Johnson, 28, was released by the Tennessee Titans after six 1,000-yard seasons in Nashville. The Jets envision Johnson as a big-play threat to pair with Chris Ivory when the offense slows to coach Rex Ryan's preferred "ground and pound" approach of relying on power running to move the chains and wear down opponents. The Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys were reportedly interested in signing Johnson, but he would have come in as part of a timeshare arrangement at running back. Johnson signed a four-year, $53 million contract with the Titans in 2011 that included a base salary of $8 million for the 2014 season. New coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Ruston Webster made it clear Johnson was not part of the long-term plans. Attempts to trade Johnson for draft pick compensation didn't materialize. Johnson might not be the same player he was in 2009, when he rushed for more than 2,000 yards, but he carried the ball 279 times in 2013 and could flourish as part of a rotation. With the Jets, Ivory and Bilal Powell figure into the workload. Johnson is also a solid short-range receiver with an average of 45 catches in Tennessee. That reliable outlet makes him the ideal check-down read for second-year quarterback Geno Smith, competing with Michael Vick to start for the Jets in 2014. After agreeing to terms, Johnson said, "I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder. I am very excited about that. It's a team on the rise and I want to make them better. ... I still have it." "I think I'm going to fit in pretty well. Johnson acknowledged that some have doubts about how much he has left, but he said, "I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me."
