Report: Chris Johnson heading to Jets

(SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Jets and running back Chris Johnson have reportedly agreed to terms.

ESPN and NFL.com have indicated that deal is for two years.

The Tennessee Titans released Johnson earlier this month after the club failed in an attempt to trade the six-year veteran.

Johnson ran for 1,077 yards with six touchdowns and added 42 receptions for 345 yards with four scores in 16 games last season. His 3.9-yard rushing average, however, was the lowest figure of his six-year career.

He also underwent minor knee surgery in January.

The East Carolina product has run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first six NFL seasons, including 2,006 yards with 14 touchdowns in 2009. He also has 2,003 career yards receiving with eight scores.

Johnson was the 24th overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft. He missed just one game in his six seasons with the franchise.
