Coming off of a season in which he ran for 1,077 yards, his second lowest season total, Chris Johnson could be on the move as interest in the running back begins to heat up around the league. Johnson, who ran for 2,006 yards in 2009, isn't on the move quite yet as no deal is imminent, but the Tennessee Titans are fielding the interest from other teams with Johnson set to make $8 million this upcoming season. The belief is that the team may release Johnson should there be no trade partner, but it looks as though the Titans will get something for him in return. It's been put on record that Johnson felt the Titans were handling him wrong and that he was being underused, which is what led to him being open to the possibility of a trade from Tennessee. He also underwent surgery in January for a torn meniscus in his knee, an injury he told the Tenneessean he had been playing with for most of the season. There is no current time table for when a deal will get done as the Titans explore the possible options in the best interest of the team, but GM Ruston Webster has also stated that he'd like a deal to be done sooner rather than later for Chris' sake. Johnson still has plenty that he can offer the league if he is healthy. He's just 28 years old and has ran for 7,965 yards and 50 touchdowns in his career while adding a formidable threat in the passing game, catching 272 passes for 2,003 yards and eight touchdowns. Where Johnson will end up is a mystery, but with the NFL draft coming up and the interest from around the league heating up, there will most likely be a resolution within the next few weeks to make both sides happy.
