RB Chris Johnson wants to keep playing football


  • Former Cardinals RB Chris Johnson has expressed his desire to continue playing in the NFL.
  • Last season, Johnson was only on the field for 42 total snaps. His overall grade was a mediocre 58.9, which would have been 57th out of 62 RBs if he had qualified.
  • In 2015, Johnson’s elusive rating of 38.8 ranked 11th out of 26 qualified running backs and his average of 2.53 yards after contact per attempt was tied for 7th.
  • Johnson was also 13th in breakaway percentage (percentage of yards that come on runs of 15 or more yards) at 29.2 in 2015.

    If Chris Johnson wants to continue his career he’s going to have to accept that he needs to move into a 3rd down receiving back type of role. No one is going to take a chance on him as an early down workhorse at this stage of his career.
