Chris Johnson visiting the Miami Dolphins

After failing to land C.J. Anderson in free agency, the Miami Dolphins are continuing their search for help in the backfield.

Watch:

NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported that former Titans, Jets and Cardinals runner Chris Johnson will visit the team on Wednesday, per a source.

Johnson played well out of the gate for Arizona last season, pounding his way for 814 yards at 4.2 yards per carry before landing on injured reserve in December with a fractured tibia. He lost speed down the stretch, but Johnson looked fresh during the early part of last season.

Now healthy and entering his age-31 campaign, Johnson expressed hope in staying with the Cardinals, but Arizona is committed to turning uber-talented second-year back David Johnson into a full-time workhorse.

The Dolphins loom as a good fit for the once-named CJ2K, even if football czar Mike Tannenbaum sees second-year runner Jay Ajayi as a three-down back. The fifth-round pick accounted for just 187 yards on the ground as a rookie, leaving Miami to look for depth after losing Lamar Miller to the Texans.
