Cowboys' Stephen Jones: Chris Johnson on team's 'short list'
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Free-agent running back Chris Johnson recently said he'd love to join the Cowboys. Though the Cowboys aren't in any rush to add another running back, Johnson isn't too far off the team's radar. 

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was asked about Johnson in a conference call with season-ticket holders. Via the team's website, Jones said the team has at least some interest in Johnson

“We haven’t visited with Chris, and we can’t talk about him because he’s a free agent. But right now we’re looking at the guys that we have on our roster,” Jones said. “He is somebody that is on a short list of ours that we think could ultimately come in and do some good things for us if we asked him to. But I wouldn’t say it’s a priority right now.”

After running for 2,006 yards in 2009, Johnson has been unable to live up to expectations since. With the Jets a year ago, Johnson only totald 663 yards and one touchdown while notching just one start. 

The Cowboys added Darren McFadden this offseason after DeMarco Murray left for Philadelphia. Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams are the other backs on the roster.

RB Chris Johnson: I'd fit good in Dallas
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Running back Chris Johnson is still looking for a place to play next season. After being cut by the Jets at the end of 2014, Johnson believes he could be the answer to what the Cowboys need at running back after letting DeMarco Murray go to Philadelphia and not drafting a running back, according to the Dallas Morning News.

"I'd fit good in Dallas," Johnson said to TMZ. "They need it. Yeah. That's what we're trying to do. Cowboys, come holler at me."

Dallas signed Darren McFadden to a two-year deal in the offseason worth up to $5.85 million. Johnson had the worst rushing season in his career in 2014, totaling 663 yards on the ground with one touchdown.

Video shows RB Chris Johnson working out again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran running back Chris Johnson, who was shot in the shoulder earlier in the offseason, is back working out, a TMZ video has revealed. He is shown doing sprints and pumping his arm to show that the bullet wound is no longer bothering him.

The 29-year-old Johnson is seeking employment as a free agent after a poor season with the Jets in which he rushed for less than 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. He finished with 663 yards on 155 carries for a 4.3 YPC average.

Report: Gun charges dropped for RB Chris Johnson
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Free agent running back Chris Johnson took to social media on Wednesday to announce that his gun charges were dropped. NJ.com confirmed that Johnson had a misdemeanor gun charge against him from back in January dropped.

Johnson was arrested on Jan. 9 in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm. In a different incident, the former Titans and Jets running back was involved in a fatal drive-by shooting last weekend that killed one of his friends. Johnson was also shot in the shoulder, but was released from a local hospital a day later.

Johnson, 29, became a free agent on Tuesday after the Jets declined to exercise the $500,000 option for 2015. He started just six games at running back in 2014, totaling 663 yards on 155 carries.
