Now that the Washington Redskins have taken DeSean Jackson of the free market, the next big unresolved free agency question is just where will Chris Johnson end up?

The Tennesse Titans are expected to release the running back by the end of the week according to's Ian Rapoport. 

Rapoport tweeted: "Next shoe to drop in @NFL: Impending release of #Titans RB Chris Johnson. Should happen at the end of this week or beginning of next week"

When that happens he is expected to have no shortage of options with both the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets touted as potential destinations for Johnson.

The Falcons are looking to bolster an offense that struggled mightily last season. Roddy White is returning from a knee injury at wide receiver and Atlanta will need to find tight end help to replace the retiring Tony Gonzalez.

Johnson could certainly impact on the Falcons offense and would be able to stay close to home in the south.

Another possible destination for Johnson could be the revamped New York Jets. Rex Ryan's team have been very active in free agency so far this offseason, acquiring wide receivers Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford to accompany quarterback Michael Vick.

The further acquisition of Johnson would provide the Jets with a balanced offense to accompany their impressive defense from last year and could possibly rival the New England Patriots in the AFC East.
