Free agent RB Chris Johnson mentioned that he believes he would “fit good in Dallas.”
“I’d fit good in Dallas,” Johnson said this week when asked about playing for the Cowboys, via TMZ. “They need it. Yeah. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
Last we heard regarding Johnson, TMZ reported that he was “in talks” with multiple NFL teams about a potential opportunity. However, there hasn’t been any updates regarding who could be interested in him.
Johnson has been working out and insists that he’s good to go, despite being shot in the shoulder during a drive by shooting in Florida back in early March.
Talks with Johnson could pick up in the next week as teams will be able to sign free agents with it counting against their compensatory pick.
Johnson, 29, ran for 663 yards on 155 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 24 receptions for 151 yards receiving and two total touchdowns during the 2014 season. Pro Football Focus rated Johnson as the No. 46 running back out of 57 qualifying players
