Soon-to-be free agent running back Chris Johnson says that he would like to re-sign with the Arizona Cardinals. It’ll be interesting to see if they’ll re-sign him with the emergence of rookie David Johnson late in the season when he was hurt.

The veteran back signed with the team in Aug. 2015 to a one-year, $2 million deal. He received little interest from other teams after being released by the New York Jets.

A month after being released by the Jets, he was shot in Orlando, Fla. In what was a drive-by. He was reportedly text messaging and slumped down six inches at the time of the shooting that saved his life.

His friend, Dreekius Oricko Johnson, was killed and his other friend, Reggie Johnson, sustained injuries to his shoulder, leg and hand.

After recovering from being shot, head coach Bruce Arians was the one, who gave him the chance that he was seeking. In Arians system, he showed that he was one of the top backs in the league again.

Before getting hurt, he had a 196 carries for 814 yards and three touchdowns. The 814 yards were the most since 2013 when he had 1,077 yards with the Tennessee Titans.

He was placed on injured reserve with designation to return on Dec. 1. However, he did not return, or play in the Cardinals two playoff games as they relied heavy on rookie back Johnson.
