Chris Johnson rips former GM John Idzik for mismanagement of Jets
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Former Jets running back Chris Johnson is just a little bitter about being cut by the team. Mostly, because, in his opinion, former general manager John Idzik lied to him about what his position would be with the team.

"Basically, it was a situation where I was going there to be the guy or whatever," Johnson said on the Rich Eisen Show Monday. "It was still said, yeah, both guys [Johnson and Ivory] were going to get playing time. I think it was like after the [third] game or something like that, it just switched over and I started getting less and less playing time, and not knowing where it came from."

Johnson started just six games at running back in 2014, totaling 663 yards on 155 carries. 

"I never wanted to be a cancer in the locker room, or be the bad guy, so all I could really do is take advantage of my opportunities, talk to Rex, talk to [Anthony Lynn] the running back coach," Johnson said.

He is now free to join any team that will have him.

"It just didn't jell; it just didn't work out," Johnson said. "That being said, I think it was a good thing I did my contract how I did it. Basically, I was on a one-year deal with an option of a second year. I know how I feel when I'm working out and all those types of things, so I'm just very excited to see what lies ahead.

Jets officially cut ties with embattled RB Chris Johnson
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

As expected, the Jets have declined to exercise the $500,000 option for 2015 on running back Chris Johnson. The embattled running back will become an unrestricted free agent again on March 10, per the team's official website.

Johnson signed a two-year, $8 million with the Jets last offseason, but endured an underwhelming season working with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. He took 155 handoffs for 663 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and a touchdown, adding 24 catches for 151 yards and another score. He was arrested last month in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor.

Report: Jets expected to part ways with Chris Johnson
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Jets are expected to part ways with running back Chris Johnson in the next couple of days, a league source told Metro New York on Friday.

Johnson signed a two-year, $8 million contract last offseason, and the Jets have until Feb. 16 to decide whether to pay his $500,000 option bonus. Johnson put together a disappointing season, rushing 155 times for 663 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and a touchdown. He was also arrested in January for open carrying of a firearm.

Chris Ivory to see smaller role in 2015?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Although there's a good chance the Jets will release running back Chris Johnson, running back Chris Ivory still could face a smaller role due to Chan Gailey's offense, reports ESPN.com.

Gailey's spread attack "puts a premium on a running back who can play in space and catch the ball," the website said. "That could mean a smaller role for Ivory."

Ivory (6-0, 222 pounds) is entering the final year of his deal. He played 42 percent of the snaps last season, compared to 37 percent for Johnson, per the website.

ESPN.com says the "ideal fit" for the Jets would be impending free agent C.J. Spiller, who had his best year, 2012, playing for Gailey in Buffalo.

Report: Jets 'probably' will release RB Chris Johnson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jets running back Chris Johnson is scheduled to count $5.25 million against the cap in 2015, "steep for a player who would be no more than a part-time back again," reports ESPN.com. The Jets would save $3.5 million by releasing Johnson, and "that probably will be the outcome."

The move could happen relatively soon, because the team has until Feb. 16 to decide whether to pay Johnson's $500,000 option bonus. Johnson, who signed a two-year, $8 million contract last offseason, will turn 30 in September and "isn't close to being the player he once was," the report said.

Splitting time with Chris Ivory, Johnson rushed 155 times for 663 yards (4.3 ypc) and a touchdown, adding 24 catches for 151 yards and another score. He was arrested last month in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor.
