Not surprising nor confirmed, but reported on CBS sports.com by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com Thu, 05 Feb 2015 11:02 AM ET 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.
