NFL rumors: Chris Johnson declining to work out for teams

Since becoming a free agent following his release by the Tennessee Titans, running back Chris Johnson has yet to take any visits with interested teams. As it turns out, that may not be because of a lack of interest, but simply a lack of willingness to work out by Johnson.

According to a league source who spoke with Pro Football Talk, Johnson is not willing to work out for any NFL teams.

Johnson believes the years of work that he put in with the Tennessee titans over the past six years should be enough for the team to decide whether or not they want him on board and if they believe he can help out their team.

Unfortunately for Johnson, if teams look at the game film they will see a declining player.

If Johnson wants to get a contract that will live up to the money he likely believes he deserves, his best bet will be to show teams that he still has plenty of speed and athleticism left in the tank.
