Arizona Cardinals: 15 free agents keep em or drop em
By Scott Allen
Chris Johnson, RB
Johnson had a very nice season going before getting hurt in November and missing the remainder of the season. Had the Cardinals made the Super Bowl, there was a chance Johnson would have played. He was already practicing.
Johnson had 814 yards rushing in 11 games played in 2015. He averaged 4.2 yards-per-carry. If he had played a full 16 games he likely would have finished well over 1,000 yards for the season. he only had three touchdowns but that was a product of the Cardinals having so many offensive weapons.
I know David Johnson emerged as the number one back for the Cardinals but to be able to have Chris Johnson compliment that in 2016 would be huge. I like the three back system of Johnson, Johnson, and Andre Ellington. It works.
Decision: Keep him
Next: Age becoming a factor
