  News Statistics Roster  
Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/17/14 10:32pm et
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he expects to receive medical clearance to resume football activities in the near future. He underwent knee surgery in January but expects to be fully healthy for training camp.
Huddle Up: For now at least, ohnson also said he wouldn't mind sharing carries, and with Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory still on the Jets' roster, look for that to be the case.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/16/14 11:02am et
The New York Jets are sticking to their budget/value system. While they want free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans), they will not 'overpay' for him. The depressed running back market suggests Johnson will fetch $3-4 million per year maximum.
Huddle Up: It'll be a step down for CJ$K money-wise, but an incentive-laden short-term deal with the run-heavy Jets might be his best option right now.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/16/14 6:53pm et
Updating a previous report, the New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson to a two-year deal worth $8 million, with another $1 million in incentives available.
Huddle Up: That's about as good a contract as Johnson could have hoped. He'll split the workload with Chris Ivory on the run-heavy Jets.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/10/14 12:37am et
Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans) will not be engaging in private tryouts for anyone, according to a league source. The thinking is that he has generated six years of game film, and he's a proven commodity.
Huddle Up: At this point it's tough to see CJ?K getting anything more than an incentive-laden one-year "show me" type of deal, so why not rest on his body of work?

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/7/14 11:11am et
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson could be on the roster bubble if the team signs RB Chris Johnson (Titans) this offseason.
Huddle Up: Goodson has a ton of off-the-field baggage hanging over him, making him the likely cut if the Jets need to clear room for CJ?K.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/6/14 3:36pm et
The Tennessee Titans have not officially released RB Chris Johnson yet because it has not been on the list of NFL transactions at this point. Johnson will not be able to sign with another team until he is officially released.
Huddle Up: Nothing it seems is ever cut and dry with CJ2K -- even his pending release from the Titans. He'll officially be on the open market soon enough, but it remains to be seen how much interest he'll generate.

Shonn Greene - RB Posted 4/6/14 3:53pm et
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene said he will be fine with being part of a running back committee because it will allow the players to stay fresh. 'Nowadays it's not just one back getting the job done, it's done by committee. I take that as a good thing, because it keeps guys fresh, it keeps guys healthy, no one takes a beating like you once did when you had one back, when you used a [workhorse] back. So I welcome all those guys on the roster to come help the team out so we can get where we need to be,' Greene said.
Huddle Up: Look for the Titans to draft a back in May, and depending how high of a pick they use, Greene could remain the No. 2 RB option in Nashville.

Jake Locker - QB Posted 4/4/14 10:34am et
The Tennessee Titans are hopeful QB Jake Locker (foot) will take part in on-field work in late May, which is ahead of schedule.
Huddle Up: Getting Locker reps with his new coach and in the Titans' new offense would be a huge step towards the new regime getting off on the right foot--no pun intended.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/4/14 10:34am et
Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson will meet with general manager Ruston Webster Friday, April 4. Johnson is expected to undergo a physical during the visit and be released.
Huddle Up: It's one of the worst-kept secrets in football that CJ?K will be released, and it looks like by the end of Friday he'll officially be free to start talking to other teams.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 4/3/14 3:53pm et
The Tennessee Titans are expected to release RB Chris Johnson at the end of this week or beginning of next week.
Huddle Up: There have been no takers with CJ2K's big salary, so it looks like he'll hit the open market.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/30/14 2:27pm et
The New York Jets could show interest in Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson if he is released this offseason, but they would have to be comfortable with his asking price.
Huddle Up: With the unproven likes of Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory currently atop their RB depth chart and the team lacking in overall offensive playmakers, the Jets could use a big-play back but like most every suitor at this stage, the price definitely has to be right.

Nate Washington - WR Posted 3/30/14 10:49pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington is expected to remain with the team even though he is scheduled to have a $4.8 million salary cap figure for 2014.
Huddle Up: Washington, who's averaged 59-896-5 over the last 3 seasons, right now would remain the odds-on favorite to start opposite Kendall Wright.

Delanie Walker - TE Posted 3/30/14 10:56pm et
The Tennessee Titans are expected to get the ball to TE Delanie Walker more often during the 2014 NFL season.
Huddle Up: Wright hit career highs with 60 receptions, 571 yards and 6 scoring catches this past season when he finished as a low-end fantasy TE1, and figures to move up a peg or two in that group if these expectations are to be believed.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/30/14 10:56pm et
The Atlanta Falcons have no interest in Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson.
Huddle Up: The Falcons made one 2013's biggest FA RB splashes in bringing Steven Jackson aboard, but it wouldn't make much sense -- financial or otherwise -- for them to dip into that pool for a second straight year.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/29/14 3:46pm et
The Tennessee Titans are very likely to release RB Chris Johnson as soon as next week after failed trade attempts.
Huddle Up: It's been building to this for a while, but it finally looks like CJ will be team-shopping in the not-too-distant future.

Jake Locker - QB Posted 3/29/14 3:46pm et
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) has moved on to a different stage in his rehabilitation and is no longer in a walking boot. Locker is hoping to take part in organized team activities in June. 'Surgery went really well. Foot feels awesome and rehab is up and rolling,' Locker said. 'Doctors were happy with how things looked so (I'm) just continuing to follow that trend.'
Huddle Up: While there's still a big contract deadline looming with Locker, all indications are that the team plans to move forward with him as their franchise quarterback--and that he'll be healthy enough for the Titans to make the necessary evaluation and switch plans if need be.

Shaun Phillips - LB Posted 3/27/14 6:35pm et
The Tennessee Titans agreed on a two-year, $6 million deal with free-agent LB Shaun Phillips (Broncos) Thursday, March 27, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Titans get a pass-rushing boost in the veteran Phillips, who led the Broncos with 10 sacks in his one-season stop in Denver.

Kenny Britt - WR Posted 3/25/14 10:18pm et
The St. Louis Rams' chances of landing free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) are 'better than 50 percent,' according to general manager Les Snead. Britt has visited with the Rams, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The Pats are reportedly now out of the running, but the Skins are said to remain interested in the wideout, who never has had more than 45 receptions or 775 yards in any of his 5 NFL seasons.

Rob Bironas - PK Posted 3/20/14 1:41pm et
The Tennessee Titans officially released PK Rob Bironas Wednesday, March 19. He was due a $250,000 roster bonus and a $2.875 million base salary in 2014. The Titans are expected to replace him with a young player that they can develop.
Huddle Up: Bironas has scored at least 110 points in 7 straight seasons and has been a borderline starting PK in 12-team leagues, but he'll now be looking for a new helmet to wear.

Kenny Britt - WR Posted 3/20/14 11:10pm et
Pat Dye Jr., agent for free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans), said Britt could meet with the Carolina Panthers at some point.
Huddle Up: With the FA WR market getting slim, the Bills also are reportedly inteterested in Britt, who only has 73 receptions and 7 TDs over the past 3 seasons.

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/19/14 12:36pm et
Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson's trade market is heating up. There appears to be real interest from multiple teams.
Huddle Up: CJ?K has said he'll reduce his salary, but not much. But any team willing to pay for him--and pay him--will be willing to give him the ball 20 times a game, and that's what Johnson needs to find fantasy success. All it takes is one home run out of those 20 carries and it's a good day for CJ?K and his fantasy owners.

Kenny Britt - WR Posted 3/18/14 11:00pm et
Free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) left his visit with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, March 18, without a deal. He is being deliberate with selecting his new team, and that is by design.
Huddle Up: Since his hot start (17-289-3 TDs) in the first 3 games of the 2011 season, Britt has only 56 receptions, 685 yards and 4 TDs and has undergone multiple knee surgeries. He has a lot of catch-up work to do wherever he lands before he can be considered a fantasy factor again.

Michael Oher - OT Posted 3/14/14 10:51pm et
The Tennessee Titans signed free-agent OT Michael Oher (Ravens) to a four-year, $20 million deal Friday, March 14. The contract includes $9.5 million in guarantees.
Huddle Up: Oher struggled in Baltimore, but the Titans are expecting the Memphis native to take over one of their starting tackle spots.

Charlie Whitehurst - QB Posted 3/13/14 10:23pm et
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent QB Charlie Whitehurst (Chargers) on a 2-year deal worth up to $8 million.
Huddle Up: The Titans are expected to release Ryan Fitzpatrick with the signing of Whitehurst, who could be in line for some starts given Jake Locker's recent health issues (14 missed starts over the last 2 seasons).

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/13/14 10:40pm et
Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson is believed to be willing to accept a pay cut in order to facilitate a trade to another team. Johnson is scheduled to make $8 million next season.
Huddle Up: Johnson's salary is definitely a roadblock in today's lukewarm market for veteran RBs. See if a lower price tag is enough to sell a team on the back, who hasn't had fewer than 1,422 yards from scrimmage in any of his 6 seasons with the Titans.

Dexter McCluster - WR Posted 3/12/14 3:28pm et
Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster is expected to have a big role on offense next season. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is expected to use McCluster like he did San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead this season when he was the Chargers offensive coordinator. McCluster is expected to be used as a receiver out of the backfield.
Huddle Up: For starters, there might be some position eligibility questions with McCluster playing more of a running back role. He'll offer a nice pass-catching complement to Shonn Greene as the Titans continue to make plans for life after Chris Johnson.

Dexter McCluster - WR Posted 3/11/14 8:05pm et
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Dexter McCluster (Chiefs) on a 3-year deal worth as much as $12 million. The deal includes $4.5 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: McCluster is out of K.C. after 4 seasons with the Chiefs, but will it mean more fantasy production after hitting 3-year lows with 61 touches and 516 yards from scrimmage in 2013?

Chris Johnson - RB Posted 3/9/14 3:37pm et
Former NFL LB Keith Bulluck called Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson a 'me' person. 'He's a friend of mine, but when it comes to athlete, he's a 'me' person,' Bulluck said. 'He's a 'me' person when it comes to the athlete. For the years that he's been there, it's never been his fault why he didn't have a good running game or why he didn't have a good game. It was always somebody else's fault.'
Huddle Up: It appears Johnson's days in Nashville are limited one way or another as the Titans are exploring trade options or a even a flat-out release of the 6-year vet. In the meantime, the team is reportedly interested in free-agents Donald Brown and Ben Tate -- 2 familiar faces from the AFC South.

Alterraun Verner - CB Posted 3/9/14 3:48pm et
Free-agent CB Alterraun Verner (Titans) is expected to sign shortly after free agency begins Tuesday, March 11.
Huddle Up: There's a lot to like about Verner, who's just hitting his prime at age 25, and plenty of teams -- including the Steelers, Rams, Giants, Jets and Lions -- are reportedly interested, especially now that another top corner, the Packers' Sam Shields, is now off the market.

Nate Washington - WR Posted 2/27/14 11:02pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington said he hopes to return to the team next season but understands there is a chance he could be released. The team would create $4.8 million in salary cap space if they released Washington.
Huddle Up: The seemingly perennially underrated Washington has averaged 53 catches, 789 yards and 5 TDs in his 5 seasons in Tennessee, but the new coaching regime might see better uses for the $4.8 mil.
