The Arizona Cardinals would have been hoping to fly under the radar heading in to the 2015 NFL season.

Cards Struggles

That hasn't been the case however, with Bruce Arians' side being hit with several injuries, holding back the team as they look to improve and make the playoffs again out of the NFC West.

Arians has been unhappy with his running back situation out in Arizona and could be set to bring in a former Pro Bowler to help try and fill the void.

According to a tweet from Dianna Marie Russini, a reporter for ESPN, the Cardinals have apparently offered former Tennessee Titans and New York Jets half-back Chris Johnson a one-year deal to come in.

"The Cardinals are pursuing RB Chris Johnson. They have offered him a 1 year deal per sources. Stay tuned to see if he says yes. #Cardinals" Russini wrote.

Johnson only managed 663 yards with the Jets last year as he was labouring on the depth chart behind Chris Ivory. He did however get those yards at a very respectable 4.3 average yards per attempt. That's a heck of a lot better than Ray Rice was managing in his last season with the Ravens.

The Cardinals are so banged up right now that a player who was literally shot in the off-season - he was even working out with a bullet still in his shoulder. Maybe that's the type of grit that Arians has been so badly lacking from his current corps.

Johnson was drafted by the Titans in the first round of the 2008 draft, with the 24th pick out of East Carolina. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and made the NFL All-Pro team on one occasion.
