Chris Johnson says Jets weren't truthful to him.
Former New York Jets running back Chris Johnson, discarded when his $500,000 option wasn't picked up, took aim at the AFC East franchise Monday. He made accusations that the organization wasn't truthful to him. "I think I went into a situation where I was told one thing and it was another," Johnson told NFL Network. Johnson thought he would have a bigger role because of Rex Ryan's presence, but thinks former general manager John Idzik meddled. "Throughout the whole thing, I think last year, with that organization, I think a lot of the stuff was out of Rex's hands," Johnson said. "A lot of the things that we were doing I think it was out of Rex's hands. Don't nobody know, but it was a [bad] situation. Yeah, like a lot of things, probably, I guess, calling the shots, as far as with the team and things that goes on on Sundays and whatever. "I think a lot of it was out of Rex's hands because when I sat down and talked to Rex before I signed with the Jets, my role and my situation were explained to me totally different to what actually happened. That's just what it was. It was never a type of thing where I was just being outplayed or anything like that. It was never a situation where I got the opportunity to show my talents and be used the way that I was supposed to be used." Of course, Johnson rushed for only 663 yards as the Jets went 4-12.
