According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets are interested in signing former Titans running back Chris Johnson for the right price.
The Titans’ release of Chris Johnson on Friday raises the question of whether the three-time Pro Bowler’s next destination could be Rex Ryan’s team. Sources told the Daily News this week that the Jets have some level of interest in Johnson if the price is right. The Jets were among the teams that inquired about trading for Johnson, according to a source. The Bills, Dolphins and Falcons also reportedly looked into dealing for the 28-year-old running back.
My guess is that the Jets would like to sign Johnson for less than $3 million per year, since that’s what running backs seem to be going for nowadays.
