I see him in either, NY Jets, Pats, Maybe Oakland, Maybe Jax if they throw a ton of money at him, dark horse would be atl
I predict Houston. They can't seem to keep one healthy and they know him well, being from the division and all.
From one of the best a few years ago to an afterthought. But that's the life of a RB in today's league.
Wow, if we had the money I'd sign him We're cap strung. Murray gets hurt too often. I know our focus is defense but Johnson would be a nice addition. Too bad.
I know this sounds strange but I've heard repots that Carolina wants to save some cash by finally cutting DWIII and Stewart. If they just keep Tolbert they may be able to try and convince CJ to come in for less. Good fit in my book.
Doesn't sound strange at all, in today's NFL you should cut high priced/high profile RBs and pick up guys in the 4th-6th rounds that can do 80% of that production off the bat. One guy who I would love to see use throw a low pick over to the Saints for is Khiry Robinson of the Saints he is their 5th RB and I am willing to bet he can be virtually what Murray is for us.
That may be a good deal.
I meant it might be strange since they collected 3 RBs. Why add another. But as I said, if they cut the overrated and injured expenses of DWIII and Stewart, having CJ for less with Tolbert would go well with Cam I believe.
I doubt the Saints are giving up a RB who flashed potential and is cheap for a low round pick. Especially when they aren't real happy with the way Ingram has been playing overall.
Don't have dances of 4.24 dancing in your head. He's clearly lost a step and can't cut nor explode like he used to.
Life of a NFL RB. You have a limited shelf life and stuck in a passing league.
If he were a Cowboy people would be claiming that once he got paid he stopped showing up.
I remember the old threads debating the chances of Johnson possibly catching Emmitt. Clearly we all know the answer now but back in those days some were seriously concerned.
Yeah, that was bit much. It was a different era and Emmit was much more built for the long haul.
Though I had trust that CJ could be great, I would never think he would top those all time numbers.
This may surprise some of you though.
After six seasons, Chris Johnson has only missed 1 game, accumulated nearly 8000 yards, and has never rushed for under 1000 yards...all while averaging 4.5 ypc.
However, I just don't think RBs (other than maybe AP) should paid like he did these days.
I had no doubt he wouldn't catch Emmitt. Emmitt's strength was his durability. C.J. isn't built to carry a load like Emmitt's.
Well, just an observation but if we are not really going to use the running game, a back like Johnson really fits our needs better then a back like Murray. I like Murray and I absolutely believe we should use him more but hey, if we aren't going to do that, then a quick strike guy like Johnson is probably what we should be trying to move to.
If someone changes the way they use him, and use him more like Marshall Faulk, he can stick around longer.
But as a traditional between the tackles back, he's pretty much done.
Khiry Robinson is probably going to start for the Saints this coming season.
I think CJ2K should go to the Browns coupled with the drafting of Manziel to push that team over the edge.
Over the edge of what? A cliff?
I don't know the cap implications, but Carolina should cut one of Williams/Stewart and go with CJ and Tolbert. They would have all kinds of options and flexibility out of the backfield.
