The Dolphins couldn’t land C.J. Anderson, so they moved down to the next name on their running back list.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Dolphins have Cardinals free agent Chris Johnson in for a visit today.
Johnson was a solid addition for the Cardinals last year, rushing for 814 yards in 11 games there. And by averaging 4.2 yards per carry at 30 years old, he’s shown there’s still enough left in the tank to help a good team.
The Dolphins lost Lamar Miller in free agency, and then saw the Broncos match their RFA offer sheet to Anderson, so they’re clearly down to Plan C.
But there was sufficient interest in Johnson that they obviously figured they needed to make a move quickly.
