Report: Rams & Cardinals Not Interested In Titans RB Chris Johnson



Ed Werder of ESPN confirms that the Titans have found trade interest in RB Chris Johnson from NFL teams.

  • However, Werder confirms that the Cardinals are not among the teams interested in trading for Johnson.
  • Werder adds that the Rams do not have interest in Johnson either.

The Rams seem to make sense for Johnson given that they limited depth at running back and HC Jeff Fisher spent a few years working with him while in Tennessee.

Johnson would almost certainly have to rework his contract in order for any trade to be finalized.

Johnson, 28, still has three years remaining on his six-year, $55.26 million contract to go along with base salaries of $8 million (2014), $7 million (2015) and another $7 million (2016).


Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic insists that the Arizona Cardinals have “no interest” in Titans RB Chris Johnson, or free agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

The Cardinals seemed like they could be a fit for one of the two running backs given that Rashard Mendenhall elected to retire, but it appears as though they are comfortable moving forward with a backfield that consists of Andre Ellington, Stepfan Taylor, Jonathan Dwyer, and Ryan Williams.

Jones-Drew, 28, is coming off of a disappointing season for the Jaguars in which he totaled 803 yards (3.4 YPC) and five touchdowns. In 2013, he surpassed 100 yards in a game just once, but the Jaguars offense as a whole struggled.

  1. Ellington is not going to be used as a “feature/workhorse” back BAha made that very clear i think the no interest stems from $$$ and not need for another RB. Odds are they will draft a RB 4th rd or lower

  2. This rumor never made sense from the start. With Ellington expected to be the primary RB with an expanded role, there was no need to get a “front line” RB. And with the recent signing of Dwyer for the minimum, there is no need for another RB with 4 RB(s) on the roster & the draft still to come.
