Cowboys' Stephen Jones: Chris Johnson on team's 'short list'
Free-agent running back
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was asked about Johnson in a conference call with season-ticket holders. Via the team's website, Jones said the team has at least some interest in Johnson.
“We haven’t visited with Chris, and we can’t talk about him because he’s a free agent. But right now we’re looking at the guys that we have on our roster,” Jones said. “He is somebody that is on a short list of ours that we think could ultimately come in and do some good things for us if we asked him to. But I wouldn’t say it’s a priority right now.”
After running for 2,006 yards in 2009, Johnson has been unable to live up to expectations since. With the Jets a year ago, Johnson only totald 663 yards and one touchdown while notching just one start.
The Cowboys added Darren McFadden this offseason after DeMarco Murray left for Philadelphia. Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams are the other backs on the roster.

Jets' Mike Maccagnan: 'Not actively shopping' Muhammad Wilkerson
However, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan, who appeared on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York 98.7 FM, said that the organization isn't looking to try and trade Wilkerson at this time.
"We're not actively shopping Mo," Maccagnan said, via ESPN.com. "It's not part of our plans. But, again, his name comes up periodically at times, but nothing active right now."
Wilkerson has been productive for the Jets but is entering the final year of his contract. The Jets also just drafted Leonard Williams, who figures to earn some immediate playing time.
"Mo's a good player, he's part of this organization and he's currently under contract," Maccagnan said. "We'd like to keep him in this organization. We just have to go through a process with him to figure out, you know, if we can find a middle ground."

A message criticizing
"Mike Brown told me I'm done here," the tweet read. "Said I can play this year and go home. So I told him I want a raise or I'll sit my a-- at home this …"
Moments after the tweet hit the social media site it was deleted. After deactivating his Twitter account, Whitworth logged back on but made his account private.
Whitworth told ESPN that the tweet originated from his wife, who was trying to send a private message to a teammate for him. Whitworth said his wife is upset over the ordeal but downplayed the message as more of a joke.
Whitworth is entering the final year of his contract.
Former Ravens safety Ed Reed to officially retire on Thursday
Reed, a first-round selection in 2002 by the Ravens, went on to have one of the more remarkable careers for a safety. Reed made the Pro Bowl nine times, was named an All-Pro eight times and was the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004.
In 2012, his last season with the Ravens, he was a part of the team that went on to win Super Bowl XLVII.
During his career, Reed recorded 643 total tackles and 64 interceptions. NFL coaches and players have referred to Reed as one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game.
He last season in the league was in 2013, when he spent time with both the Texans and Jets. He did not sign to a team in 2014.
Reed will now likely be inducted into the Ravens' Ring of Honor this season. Ravens team president Dick Cass previously said it would be ideal for this to happen in the franchise's 20th year.
"He belongs there, obviously," Cass said back in March, via The Baltimore Sun. "Our fans would love to see him. We would love to do it this year, but in some sense, it’s in his court. He knows that we want him in our Ring of Honor.”
