Chris Johnson will not be suiting up for the Tennessee Titans again next season. Less than three years after signing a $53 million contract with the team, the Titans have reportedly decided that they are going to part ways with Johnson by releasing him. It's expected to happen at some point today:
No great surprise, but Titans are releasing RB Chris Johnson today, per source close to situation. Johnson will be a free agent.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 4, 2014
As ESPN's Adam Schefter mentioned, this shouldn't really come as a surprise, seeing as how Johnson's agent came out this week and said that he believed Johnson was going to be released soon. But it is kind of crazy to think that, just a few years ago, Johnson was one of the best running backs in the NFL. And now, he's going to be free to sign with whichever team he wants to sign with in the coming weeks. Where do you think he's going to end up?
