“As an organization, we want to thank Chris for his contributions to the Titans,” general manager Ruston Webster said.
“Chris produced many memorable moments, broke franchise records and was durable over his six-year career with our team. We have had an open dialogue with Chris’ agent, Joel Segal, over the last few weeks, and we appreciate the patience and professionalism they have shown throughout this process.
“We made an effort to trade Chris but were unable to do so. We wish Chris the best and thank him for the six seasons he spent with us.”
The lightning quick Johnson was one of the NFL’s most explosive and dynamic players early in his career. Pay per head sportsbooks remember that in 2009, he ran for 2,006 yards and is one of only six players to run in his first six seasons for at least 1,000 yards, along with Corey Dillon, Barry Sanders, Curtis Martin, Eric Dickerson, and LaDainian Tomlinson.
However, price per head services saw that Johnson had a career-worst average of 3.9 yards a carry, and in 2013 didn’t have a run longer than 30 yards. The player was set to make $8 million in 2014.
Tennessee found the combination of high cost and sinking production unacceptable, and pay per head sportsbooks found out that they’re expected to draft a running back to work with free-agent addition Dexter McCluster and Shonn Greene out of the backfield.
“There’s some sense of relief that we’re done with it, we’re moving forward, and I’m sure it’s like that for CJ,” Webster said in Nashville on The Midday 180.
According to sources, the Falcons, Dolphins, Jets, and Bills were four teams that talked about a possible trade for the player, but they ultimately declined doing it.
When he ranked as one of the NFL’s best values after three seasons, Johnson sold himself as a “playmaker” who should not be held back by the values placed on running backs, and in 2011, after a training camp holdout, the player got a $54 million, four-year deal. Over the past three years, Johnson made $31 million.
