|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Veteran running back Chris Johnson, who was shot in the shoulder earlier in the offseason, is back working out, a TMZ video has revealed. He is shown doing sprints and pumping his arm to show that the bullet wound is no longer bothering him.
The 29-year-old Johnson is seeking employment as a free agent after a poor season with the Jets in which he rushed for less than 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. He finished with 663 yards on 155 carries for a 4.3 YPC average.

|(3/12/15) Free agent running back Chris Johnson took to social media on Wednesday to announce that his gun charges were dropped. NJ.com confirmed that Johnson had a misdemeanor gun charge against him from back in January dropped.
Johnson was arrested on Jan. 9 in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm. In a different incident, the former Titans and Jets running back was involved in a fatal drive-by shooting last weekend that killed one of his friends. Johnson was also shot in the shoulder, but was released from a local hospital a day later.
Johnson, 29, became a free agent on Tuesday after the Jets declined to exercise the $500,000 option for 2015. He started just six games at running back in 2014, totaling 663 yards on 155 carries.

Chris Johnson rips former GM John Idzik for mismanagement of Jets
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/16/15) Former Jets running back Chris Johnson is just a little bitter about being cut by the team. Mostly, because, in his opinion, former general manager John Idzik lied to him about what his position would be with the team.
"Basically, it was a situation where I was going there to be the guy or whatever," Johnson said on the Rich Eisen Show Monday. "It was still said, yeah, both guys [Johnson and Ivory] were going to get playing time. I think it was like after the [third] game or something like that, it just switched over and I started getting less and less playing time, and not knowing where it came from."
Johnson started just six games at running back in 2014, totaling 663 yards on 155 carries.
"I never wanted to be a cancer in the locker room, or be the bad guy, so all I could really do is take advantage of my opportunities, talk to Rex, talk to [Anthony Lynn] the running back coach," Johnson said.
He is now free to join any team that will have him.
"It just didn't jell; it just didn't work out," Johnson said. "That being said, I think it was a good thing I did my contract how I did it. Basically, I was on a one-year deal with an option of a second year. I know how I feel when I'm working out and all those types of things, so I'm just very excited to see what lies ahead.
Jets officially cut ties with embattled RB Chris Johnson
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/14/15) As expected, the Jets have declined to exercise the $500,000 option for 2015 on running back Chris Johnson. The embattled running back will become an unrestricted free agent again on March 10, per the team's official website.
Johnson signed a two-year, $8 million with the Jets last offseason, but endured an underwhelming season working with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. He took 155 handoffs for 663 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and a touchdown, adding 24 catches for 151 yards and another score. He was arrested last month in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor.
