Last year, running back Chris Johnson spent plenty of time on the shelf, waiting for his next chance after a subpar season with the Jets. This year, after a strong performance in Arizona, Johnson could be under contract far sooner than last year.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Johnson’s situation could come to a head as early as this week, with multiple teams in play.
Johnson has said that he wants to stay with the Cardinals. However, the Cardinals seem poised to hand over the workhorse job to David Johnson.
Last year, Johnson gained 814 yards in 11 games, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. He turns 31 in September, but Johnson has shown no signs of slowing down.
