Tennessee Titans running back, Chris Johnson is likely to become a free agent next week, according to Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora, a NFL insider for CBS tweeted today: "Titans very likely to release RB Chris Johnson next week after failed trade attempts."

Multiple sources this offseason have reported that the Titans have been attempting to trade the 28-year old running back who would otherwise be due $8 million next season.

According to La Canfora, Johnson will be a highly valued free agent if he were to be released with other top running backs Maurice Jones-Drew and LaGarrette Blount already picked up by other teams.

Johnson has suffered a drop in production in recent years after rushing for over 2,000 yards in 2009. He recorded just 1,077 yards and six touchdowns and his yards per attempt dropped below four yards for the first time in his six year career.

It is not known which teams would be interested in Johnson but it is probably fortunate that Johnson is entering a running back free agent market late after a number of premier backs have already been picked up.

Where do you think Johnson will end up? Let us know in the comments.
