After months of dancing around the issue and not doing much of anything, the Tennessee Titans are releasing Chris Johnson today and he’s expected to hit the free agent market before the end of the work day.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed what we were hearing all throughout the night that Johnson would be cut and would be fair game to sign before the weekend arrived.

As far as where he goes after his release if official, CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora is sticking to his guns that the New York Jets will be the likeliest suitor.

 

An earlier report from Friday indicated that the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys will also kick the tires on Johnson and he may end up finding a new team before the weekend is out.
