Report: Titans to release Chris Johnson on Friday


Update: The Titans have officially released Chris Johnson according to Jim Wyatt. 


After meeting face-to-face on Friday where a physical is expected to take place, the Tennessee Titans are expected to release Chris Johnson according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Pro Football Talk. Johnson tweeted late Thursday night that he was headed to Tennessee to meet with the Titans, and on Friday PFT announced he would take a physical, which he would likely fail.



As PFT notes, Johnson who had off-season knee surgery could fail a physical today, which is how the Titans would cut him, over a failed physical that means he couldn’t play today if the team had a game. In five seasons with Tennessee Johnson rushed for 7,965 yards including one season that included 2,006 yards in 2009.

He was set to make $8 million this season but lack of production over the last few seasons made him a cap casualty. There are several reported teams already interested in Johnson, including the New York Jets who are expected to pursue him hard.
