Report: Cards offer Chris Johnson one-year deal

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cardinals are in the market for a veteran running back.

According to Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN, the Cards have offered former Titans running back Chris Johnson a one-year deal, and are awaiting word on whether he’ll accept.

It’s no guarantee he’ll sign (as last week’s Pierre Thomas snafu showed), but the fact the Cardinals are interested says something about their spot.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Cardinals are so banged up at the moment, it can’t hurt to look to see if the 29-year-old Johnson has anything left, the story said. Johnson, who only managed 663 yards with the Jets last year (on a respectable 4.3 yards per attempt), hasn’t looked like CJ2K for quite some time. Andre Ellington, if healthy, is still expected to get about 20 touches a game, according to a report we had last week, and should get a good part of those in receptions which helps his PPR value. David Johnson is the current RB2.
