Chris Johnson's free agency stint was ended on Wednesday after the running back signed with the New York Jets.

The 28-year-old has gradually declined since 2009 where he rushed for over 2000 yards, Johnson still shows flashes of lightning speed and elite talent but the lack of interest throughout free agency really speaks to the diminishing running back market rather than Johnson himself.

Now having signed with the Jets, Johnson is already looking to prove doubters wrong at his new franchise and recently spoke to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean on his future in the league.

Johnson exclaimed: "I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder, I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me. I am very excited about [joining the Jets]. It’s a team on the rise and I want to make them better. … I still have it.”

Keep an eye out for Johnson who may have needed a new beginning to reignite his career, Johnson still has elite level speed and being part of the Jets offense may allow him to express himself like he did in his early years for the Titans.
