Johnson reportedly is now willing to take a pay cut to help facilitate a trade, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports. Johnson is due $8 million next year, but there's no way he's getting that money. (Or close to it.)
The reality of Johnson's situation probably is starting to hit the seven-year veteran. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean writes there is "some" interest around the league, but the expectation remains that Johnson eventually will be released.
Running backs are having a hard time finding money in this free-agent market. We'd expect Johnson's salary to be cut in half, at least. He's unlikely to get 300 carries again anytime soon as well.
