Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports the Jets are one of three teams interested in signing CJ2K.
3. Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys, Giants and Jets were among the teams that inquired about Johnson prior to his release, according to Fox Sports. As Rapoport points out, the Cowboys were high on CJ2K entering the 2008 NFL Draft. Although team sources tell the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the Cowboyshave no interest in signing Johnson, Rapoport has been told they could be a possibility.
4. Buffalo Bills: The Bills' reported involvement in trade talks was a head-scratcher with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson entering contract years. To the surprise of no one, their interest was overblown. The Buffalo News reported that the Titans called the Bills to gauge interest in a trade, but Buffalo wasn't interested. Per Rapoport, though, they might be interested now that Johnson is freely available.
