Jets decline option on Chris Johnson, free agent-- Sat Feb 14 2:00 pm --
Set to become free agent on March 10th
The Chris Johnson the Jets signed a year ago wasnít up to his old standards, so they decided not to keep him around for another year.
The team announced they werenít picking up the option on the veteran running backís contract, meaning heíll be an unrestricted free agent on March 10.(ProFootballTalk)
FF Today's Take:Johnson averaged a respectable 4.3 yards per carry in New York but the cap savings of $3.5 million coupled with mediocre production won't get a veteran running back re-signed these days. Chris Ivory and Daryl Richardson are the top two running backs on the Jets depth chart.
Chris Johnson arrested on weapons charge-- Sat Jan 10 1:10 pm --
Open carrying of weapons/firearms, second degree misdemeanor
Jets running back Chris Johnson has been arrested in his hometown of Orlando, Florida.
PFT has confirmed a report that Johnson was arrested on Friday for open carrying of a firearm, a second degree misdemeanor. A league source tells PFT that Johnson does have a license to carry in Florida. But this arrest wasnít just for carrying, it was for open carrying.(Pro Football Talk)
FF Today's Take:The team is aware of the situation but isn't commenting. Johnson split time with Chris Ivory this past season and signed a 2-year deal prior to last season.
