Chris Johnson has a new team.
The former Tennessee Titans running back agreed to a two-year contract with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to an ESPN.com report.
The Jets were the last to see Johnson’s big-play capabilities first-hand. His 94-yard touchdown run on Dec. 17, 2012 was his third of 80 yards or more that season and the sixth of his career. No other player ever had more than three of that length in a career, let alone a season.
In 18 games since then, Johnson has produced one run of 25 yards or more. That was a 30-yard touchdown run last November against Indianapolis. He did have touchdown receptions of 49 and 66 yards last season.
The Titans waived him nearly two weeks ago despite the fact that he had three years remaining on a contract he signed in 2011.
He is the third-leading rusher in franchise history and one of only seven players in NFL history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season.
The Jets and Titans will play at LP Field this season. The exact date will be revealed when the NFL releases its regular season schedule.
