Published Add your comment

It has been a pretty successful week for the Arizona Cardinals who made some big steps to improving their team.

Firstly the team completed a huge trade with the New England Patriots for one of the top pass rushers in the NFL Chandler Jones.

The Johnson's are back

Arizona have made another big move today as they have re- signed one of their stars from last year, runningback Chris Johnson.

Johnson never featured in Arizona's final four regular season games and missed their two play-off appearances through injury.

But the team have now secured his services for another year where they will be hoping he can return to his 2015 form.

Arizona's Johnson and Johnson backfield will now return as Chris Johnson will once again partner last year's rookie sensation David Johnson.

Following his re- signing, Johnson took to Twitter to make a big statement.

Johnson claiming that he will be staying with Arizona to get a Super Bowl ring is a very big claim but I'm sure it's one that the Cardinals fans will enjoy.

The former New York Jets star had been strongly linked with a move back to the AFC East after he visited the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.

Choosing to fly, not swim

Less than 24 hours after his visit to the Dolphins, Johnson elected to re- sign with the Cardinals and deal Miami yet another free agency set back.

The question is, how bad of an impression did the Dolphins make on Johnson for him to take less than a day to sign with another team?

Or was a case that Johnson visiting the Dolphins forced Arizona's hand to offer him a new deal?
