NFL rumors: Broncos unlikely to pursue Chris Johnson

Free agent running back Chris Johnson has yet to schedule a visit since being release by the Tennessee Titans, and it appears that at least one team a day is removing themselves as a potential suitor for the former 2,000 yard rusher.

According to the Denver Post, the Broncos are not expected to pursue Johnson despite the lack of experience currently on their roster.

Denver currently has Montee Ball, C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman on the roster, and they appear confident with that group of running backs in the backfield. Ball is expected to carry the bulk of the carries, while Anderson and Hillman will need to battle it out for the primary back up role.

While the Broncos may not be in the mix for Johnson, he would still have a great opportunity to revive his career with the New York Jets, who are considered the favorite to land the veteran rusher.
