Chris Johnson Signs One-Day Contract To Retire A Titan


According to Jim Wyatt of the official team site, RB Chris Johnson will sign a one-day contract to retire with the Titans on Wednesday. 

Johnson said he felt like he still had some left in the tank, but he didn’t want to play with any team besides the Titans. 

“Before I (announced my retirement), having talks with my agent about what we were going to do, I thought if I played one more year the only team I would come back and play for was Tennessee. I would love to have finished where I started,” Johnson said. “We had some discussions with the team, and they weren’t looking to go in that direction. There were no hard feelings, and it didn’t work out, so I decided to retire.”

Johnson, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2008. He played six years for Tennessee before signing on with the Jets for the 2014 season.
Johnson spent three years with the Cardinals from 2015 through 2017.
For his career, Johnson rushed for 9,651 yards on 2,163 carries (4.5 YPC) to go along with 307 receptions for 2,255 yards receiving and 64 total touchdowns over the course of 10 seasons and 130 games. He was three-time Pro Bowl selection and a first-team All-Pro in 2009.
Johnson ranks third all-time in rushing in Titans franchise history with 7965 yards.
