Chris Johnson: I Want To Prove The Doubters Wrong

We know how well Jets running back Chris Johnson performs when chasing a big contract.   Now we’ll find how Johnson performs when he’s doubted and disrespected. Johnson spoke to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean after signing his contract and he expressed some of the thoughts he had for all the teams that didn’t pursue him and for those he felt disrespected him.

Jets Sign Chris Johnson To Two-Year Deal

The New York Jets have just landed Chris Johnson on a two-year contract, per ESPN’s Adam Shefter. Gang Green was ultimately the only team showing legitimate interest in the six-time 1,000-yard rusher. Johnson visited with the Jets all day on Tuesday and said he had more visits to make.  The fact that he was signed before leaving town seems to indicate that either the Jets wooed...

Dexter McCluster's skills wow Titans teammates

If any Titans player can offer a good scouting report of running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster, it's probably fellow free-agent signee Shaun Phillips. That's because the veteran linebacker spent part of the past four seasons – three in San Diego and one in Denver – trying to tackle McCluster, who played for the AFC West rival Chiefs during that stretch.

Analyzing Dexter McCluster, running back ☆

When the Titans made Dexter McCluster their first signing of free agency this offseason, I noted he had played both wide receiver and running back in the NFL, and noted Whisenhunt’s challenge was to make him a more effective player than he had been. Since then, the Titans have indicated McCluster will at least start off playing more running back than wide receiver. To get a better...

Marty Mornhinweg could make Chris Johnson a ‘productive’ Jet

According to the New York Daily News, running back Chris Johnson and Gang Green enjoyed a “productive” meeting this afternoon. The 28-year-old Johnson, a three-time Pro Bowler who earned the 2009 rushing crown, was clipped by the Tennessee Titans on April 4. Since getting drafted 24th overall out of East Carolina in 2008, the 5-foot-11, 203-pound Johnson has only missed one game...

Power Rankings: Tennessee Titans have had a top-15 offseason so far in 2014

Since the 2013 NFL season ended 10 weeks ago, every team in the NFL has made changes. Both winners and losers from last year have been busy making adjustments. Some have revamped their coaching staff. Some have turned over their roster. Some have done a little bit of both. But none, not a single one, have stood pat. During this firestorm of activity, every team believes they’ve...

Tennessee Titans seek value at cornerback

There’s no guarantee what position the Tennessee Titans will select with the No. 11 overall pick in the draft. If history has proven anything, it’s that the Titans actually draft better value at cornerback later in the draft than early. Example 1A and 1B of that are Alterraun Verner (4th round ) and Jason McCourty (6th round). Tennessee’s biggest blunder was selecting Pacman...

Jake Locker was surprised Titans released Chris Johnson

Jake Locker may be the quarterback of the Tennessee Titans — for now — but he apparently isn’t a subscriber to local or national newspapers, nor does he have access to the internet. When the Titans cut loose running back Chris Johnson earlier this offseason, the only person who was surprised by this move was Locker, who apparently didn’t see it coming or didn’t want to...
