Analysis: New York had until Monday to decide on Johnson, who was due a $500,000 option bonus that would have kicked in if he remained on the roster past then. The 29-year-old player signed last April to provide a versatile presence in the backfield, but he had his worst statistical season while splitting time with Chris Ivory. Johnson ran for 663 yards - his first season under 1,000 - and one touchdown. He caught 24 passes for 151 yards and a score.

Analysis: Sgt. Wanda Ford said an officer pulled Johnson over after he ran a stop sign Friday night. When the officer approached Johnson's vehicle, he said he saw a firearm between Johnson's feet. Openly carrying a gun is generally banned in Florida. The Jets signed Johnson to a two-year, $8 million deal last April, but it was uncertain as to whether he would return to New York after having the least-productive year of his career. He rushed for a career-low 663 yards and one TD.
|Dec. 8 2:38 PM PT3:38 PM MT4:38 PM CT5:38 PM ET22:38 GMT6:38 AM 北京时间3:38 PM MST5:38 PM EST4:38 PM CT2:38 UAE (+1)17:38 ET20:38 - Johnson had 53 yards on 16 carries in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
Analysis: New York's lack of a strong preference for Johnson or Chris Ivory leaves them both as risky flex plays at best - and you likely didn't have either on your roster if you're still alive in your league's playoffs.
|Dec. 2 9:30 AM PT10:30 AM MT11:30 AM CT12:30 PM ET17:30 GMT1:30 AM 北京时间10:30 AM MST12:30 PM EST11:30 AM CT21:30 UAE12:30 ET15:30 - Johnson rushed for 105 yards on 17 carries Monday.
Analysis: This was a season-high for Johnson, and the first time he reached 100 yards in 2014.
|July 24 12:58 PM PT1:58 PM MT2:58 PM CT3:58 PM ET19:58 GMT3:58 AM 北京时间12:58 PM MST2:58 PM EST2:58 PM CT23:58 UAE15:58 ET18:58 - Johnson was a full participant at practice for the first time since joining the New York Jets after recovering from offseason knee surgery.
Analysis: Johnson signed with the Jets in April and said Thursday his right knee feels good. He had surgery to repair torn cartilage after playing with the injury most of last year. He ran for 1,077 yards, the second-lowest total of his career. He rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 with Tennessee.
|May 22 1:21 PM PT2:21 PM MT3:21 PM CT4:21 PM ET20:21 GMT4:21 AM 北京时间1:21 PM MST3:21 PM EST3:21 PM CT0:21 UAE (+1)16:21 ET19:21 - Johnson says his surgically repaired right knee is feeling "good," but it will likely keep the New York Jets running back from participating in organized team activities and minicamp the next few weeks.
Analysis: Johnson says Thursday that he started running straight ahead this week and is "close to 100 percent." Signed by New York to a two-year, $8 million deal in April, Johnson had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee in January. He played through the injury with Tennessee last season, but expects to be ready in time to fully participate in training camp.
|Apr. 17 11:30 AM PT12:30 PM MT1:30 PM CT2:30 PM ET18:30 GMT2:30 AM 北京时间11:30 AM MST1:30 PM EST1:30 PM CT22:30 UAE14:30 ET17:30 - 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.".
Analysis: Johnson was signed Wednesday by the Jets after he was released by the Tennessee Titans on April 7. After balking at splitting carries last season, Johnson says this year "is about winning," and sharing the workload with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell isn't an issue.
|Apr. 16 1:02 PM PT2:02 PM MT3:02 PM CT4:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 AM 北京时间1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST3:02 PM CT0:02 UAE (+1)16:02 ET19:02 - The New York Jets and former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a deal. Johnson met with the Jets all day Tuesday and stayed in town to watch the Knicks-Nets game in Brooklyn Tuesday night before signing Wednesday. The team announced the move, but didn't release terms.
Analysis: Johnson was officially released by the Titans on April 7, three days after being told by the team of its decision. The former 2,000-yard rusher will team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to give coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg a versatile and deep backfield. Johnson, who turns 29 in September, is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.
|Apr. 15 11:43 AM PT12:43 PM MT1:43 PM CT2:43 PM ET18:43 GMT2:43 AM 北京时间11:43 AM MST1:43 PM EST1:43 PM CT22:43 UAE14:43 ET17:43 - A person familiar with the situation says that Johnson is visiting the New York Jets, who are looking to add a playmaker to their backfield.
Analysis: Johnson was released by the Titans last Monday. The former 2,000-yard rusher is meeting with the team at its facility Tuesday, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Jets don't make player visits public. The Jets would like Johnson to team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to form a potentially potent trio. Johnson, who turns 29 in September, is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.
|Apr. 4 9:41 AM PT10:41 AM MT11:41 AM CT12:41 PM ET16:41 GMT12:41 AM 北京时间9:41 AM MST11:41 AM EST11:41 AM CT20:41 UAE12:41 ET15:41 - The Tennessee Titans have told Johnson they are releasing him after six seasons to avoid paying $8 million the running back is due in 2014, and the final three seasons left on the $53.5 million contract he signed in September 2011.
Analysis: The Titans announced Johnson has been told he will be released Friday. The decision comes before they start their offseason program Monday with new coach Ken Whisenhunt. Johnson has the most touchdown runs of 80 yards or longer in NFL history with six - twice the total of anyone else in a group including Adrian Peterson, Barry Sanders and O.J. Simpson. He also has 12 career TD runs of at least 45 yards, trailing only Sanders (18) and Jim Brown (13) in that category.
