It has been an underwhelming 2013 campaign for the Titans' Chris Johnson. With only three games left this season, Johnson has 774 rushing yards and only four touchdowns. Since signing the lengthy four-year, $53.5 million contract extension in September 2011, the 28-year-old running back has experienced a gradual statistical decline and Tennessee may be done with him. Here's what Ian Rapoport had to say earlier today:
And here's another quote regarding CJ from @InsideNFLMedia:
Also from @MikeSilver: Titans RB Chris Johnson "almost certainly gone after this season with his big salary and lack of production.”— NFL Media PR (@InsideNFLMedia) December 8, 2013
Next year, Johnson will be 29 years old. He could have another couple years in the tank, if he's paired with a decent offensive line. If you were an NFL GM, would you take a chance on CJ?
