The news of the Cardinals and free agent running back Chris Johnson talking came out in the beginning of the week. Now, at the end of the week, comes news that Johnson could still be a Card. Jay Glazer provided the first of multiple reports that Johnson will come to Arizona Sunday — after the Cards’ game against the Chiefs — to take a physical and go through a workout. Both make sense, especially the physical after Johnson was shot in the shoulder in March.
Certainly nothing is set in stone for Johnson to become a Cardinal. But you figure that if the workout and physical go well, there would be a good chance Johnson signs with the Cardinals — because it makes little sense for Johnson to make the trip out to Arizona if the money end of negotations weren’t at least close, and that Johnson believes he could fit. We will see how it plays out.
Johnson had his first sub-1,000-yard season with the Jets last season, his first not playing for the Titans. But he still averaged 4.3 yards a carry. He figures to slide in behind Andre Ellington on the depth chart, especially with rookie David Johnson still sidelined with a hamstring injury.
