Former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has signed a deal with the New York Jets. Johnson is excited about the opportunity with the Jets because he calls it a team on the rise, and the personal motivation that comes with proving the doubters wrong.
“I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder,” Johnson told The Tennessean’s Jim Wyatt in a phone interview Wednesday. “I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me.”
“I am very excited about (joining the Jets),” Johnson told Wyatt. “It’s a team on the rise and I want to make them better. … I still have it.”
Last season Johnson rushed for 1,077 yards on 279 carries, an average of 3.9 yards per carry.
“The Titans were ready to move on. They didn’t want me any more,” Johnson said. “But everything is going to work out.”
