Cortland, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The attention goes to quarterback Michael Vick and to wide receiver Eric Decker, but there's another key Jets offseason acquisition that could go a long way to helping the team make it back to the playoffs. That's Vick's roommate at training camp, running back Chris Johnson.
Johnson rushed for more than 2,000 yards back in 2009 for the Tennessee Titans. The Jets may not expect him to come back to that form, but they certainly feel like he's an asset.
In Day 1 of camp on Thursday, we may of gotten a glimpse of how the Jets would like to use him as he looked good catching passes out of the backfield.
Afterwards, he said he felt good, but admitted he was a little nervous to start camp.
"Just the first day of camp and having not really went 100 percent when I've been with the team or since I've been here or whatever," said Johnson. "Doing all the team periods felt good."
Coming off of knee surgery, there were question marks as to how much Johnson would be able to participate in camp to start. But he's been in uniform for both of the first two days.
Jets camp continues on Saturday up at SUNY Cortland. It is the first day the team will be in full pads.
