Default Chris Johnson signs two-year contract with N.Y. Jets

Chris Johnson signs two-year contract with N.Y. Jets
By Kevin Patra
Around the League writer
Published: April 16, 2014 at 03:28 p.m. Updated: April 16, 2014 at 05:20 p.m.

New York Jets general manager John Idzik has been criticized for moving at a slow pace this offseason, but he moved fast enough to get Chris Johnson to sign on the dotted line.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the former 2,000-yard running back signed a two-year pact with the Jets with a base value of $8 million and an extra $1 million in available incentives, according to a source involved in the deal. ESPN first reported the news. The team later announced that Johnson had signed the contract via Twitter.

Johnson is coming off a career-low 3.9 yards per carry last season, but his durability and big-play potential make him an ideal fit next to the bruising but oft-injured Chris Ivory. Signing in New York keeps CJ2K in a power-running offense.

Johnson underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus this offseason; he passed a physical as part of his visit Tuesday.

The Jets made the most sense to land Johnson from the start. New York came the closest to trading for the running back before the Tennessee Titans released him 11 days ago. The Jets were his first and only visit. Perhaps Idzik's slow-playing of the situation helped lower Johnson's price tag.

"I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder," Johnson told The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt after the signing. "I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me."

Yup. He doesn't have a Munchak-coached line now.

The Jets OL used to be solid (Mangold/D'Brickshaw), but that was three plus years ago.

When it was at its peak, it only slightly revitalized LDT's career; and CJ2K is not nearly as good as LDT was.

Also, there is no worse market for scrutinization than NY. Whether or not Johnson produces on the field results he's going to need to exhibit a 'thick skin' or 'resilient soul'.

Hes.coming.in with a chip on his shoulder and a tic in his neck.

I wish all the luck to C Johnson. Especially against the patriots, but I still need the jets to lose because I dint want them taking any if the wild card spots in case we don't winrour division.
