The New York Jets are one of the only teams to show interest in free agent running back Chris Johnson since his release by the Tennessee Titans, and they have remained interest despite reports that he has been overvaluing himself on the market.
Even with the possibility that Johnson could come with a high price tag, the team has decided to bring him in for a visit at the team facility on Tuesday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN passed along the news.
Former Titans RB Chris Johnson is visiting the Jets right now, per team sources who spotted him in the teams’ training facility.

There hasn’t been much news on the Johnson front since his release, but the fact that the Jets have remained connected to the former 2,000 yard rusher could mean they are strongly considering making a contract offer.
In New York, Johnson would team up with Chris Ivory to create a formidable one-two punch.
