Titans cut Johnson

Email

Durable veteran running back Chris Johnson was released by the Tennessee Titans on Friday after a morning meeting with general manager Ruston Webster.

The sixth-year back, who some believe is in decline, has averaged 4.6 yards per carry since he was drafted in the first round out of East Carolina, including a 2,006-yard season in 2009, his second year in the league.

The Titans shopped Johnson in trade but his $8 million base salary was prohibitive.
