Chris Johnson's Career Stats Not Enough? Wants To Sign Contract To A Developing Team

You always desire to grow as a player and want big teams to vest interest in you. You always dream of representing major teams and want to help the team win.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson is no different, as he had expressed his will to get a contract and sign for a developing team that he gets to play for and win as well.

Keep on going for the full details!

Johnson wants to play for a developing team. Where will he end up playing?

Several rumors are flying the streets about the contract Johnson could get this season. Rumors are there that he might get re-signed by the Cardinals while some are saying that the Cardinals might not extend his contract having previously signed a 1-year extension.

His 1-year deal extension included $615,000 signing bonus, $1,300,000 guaranteed amount and an average yearly salary of $1,500,000. That surely helped his finances and net worth which currently is a whopping $33 million.

But amidst all those rumors, the Cardinals are yet to offer him a contract extension, and now the man has himself come forth and said that he wants to play for a team which is developing, will play him and win!

That kind of leads people to assume that the Cardinals won't be able to sign him as reportedly, Johnson's personal goals do not exactly match up with the needs of Cardinals.

SiriusXM NFL Radio elaborated this and tweeted the words that came out from Johnson's mouth.

The Cardinals are not longing to share carries between David Johnson and other running backs and also the fact that Johnson has proven to be too good to come off the field might be why we might not see Johnson donning a Cardinal shirt this season.

Chris Johnson's Career In Brief.

Chris Johnson, who is a running back, is currently a free agent. He got his first chance and was drafted by the Titans of Tennessee in the very first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Chris, who played college football at East Carolina has also played for several other teams like the mighty New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals.

Professionally, Chris is someone who does not need to prove himself, as in just his second year as a professional footballer, he won the "NFL rushing title" with 2,006 yards and also broke Marshall Faulk's record of total yards from scrimmage with 2,509. While doing that he became the 6th of only seven players ever to break the mark of 2,000. 

Moreover, his rushing stats show how good he is on the field.

But like every other player, he has had his share of injury woes, and he famously suffered a groin injury and was placed on injured reserve list on October 4, 2016. He suffered the injury while playing against the Los Angeles Rams and had to undergo surgery to get fit.
