NEW YORK -- Always fast on the field, Chris Johnson is lking to quickly prove his critics wrong. The New York Jets signed the former Titans running back Wednesday, a little over a week after he was officially released by Tennessee. Johnson met with the Jets all day Tuesday -- the first team he visited -- and stayed in town to watch the Knicks-Nets game in Brklyn before signing Wednesday. The Jets announced the move, but didnt release terms. In a text message to The Associated Press, Johnson confirmed it was a two-year deal. "I have a fresh start," Johnson told The Tennessean. "Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder. I know a lot of people are doubting me." Johnson was told by the Titans of their decision April 4, ending a six-year stint in Tennessee during which he became one of the NFLs most exciting running backs. The former 2,000-yard rusher will team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to give coach Rex Ryan and offensive co-ordinator Marty Mornhinweg a deep and dangerous backfield. The Jets also have Mike Gdson, who is dealing with legal issues and recovering from torn knee ligaments. "Ive always been a big fan of the Jets," Johnson told the teams website. "There was some thought into this, but just at the end of the day, I was comfortable here. I just felt like it was the right situation." While his days as a workhorse running back -- he carried the ball over 300 times in each of the 2009 and 2010 seasons -- might be over, Johnson could be the perfect complement to the bruising Ivory and versatile Powell. In Mornhinwegs first season as offensive co-ordinator, the Jets finished sixth in the league in rushing last year with Ivory and Powell sharing the load. Despite the solid production, New York still entered the off-season aiming to improve the position with a big-play runner. Thats exactly what theyre hoping to get in the speedy and durable Johnson, who turns 29 in September and is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons. "I see this as a team on the rise," Johnson told newyorkjets.com. "This is a winning team." But there have been questions about whether hell ever be the same player who rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009, when he earned his "CJ2K" nickname. Johnson finished with 1,077 yards -- the second-lowest total of his career -- and a career-worst 3.9-yard average last season. He also rushed for 100 or more yards just twice. The Jets held Johnson to just 21 yards on 15 carries in their 38-13 loss last season at Tennessee, but Johnson gouged them for 122 yards on 21 carries, including a career-best 94-yard touchdown run, in 2012. The splashy move is reminiscent of the one the Jets made in 2010, when they signed an aging LaDainian Tomlinson, who turned out to be a useful role player. While being deliberate throughout free agency, general manager John Idzik has now signed arguably the three best players available at their positions in Johnson, quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Eric Decker. New York also showed early interest in free agency in running backs Maurice Jones-Drew and Donald Brown, but they signed elsewhere. The Titans cut ties with Johnson, making him a free agent, to avoid paying the $8 million he was due for this season, along with the final three seasons left on the $53.5 million contract he signed in September 2011. Johnson, who set several franchise and NFL records during his time in Tennessee, repeatedly said he wouldnt take a pay cut this off-season. That prompted the Titans to unsuccessfully explore trade options this off-season-- including with the Jets -- before releasing him. Johnsons exit appeared inevitable when Tennessee signed Dexter McCluster to a three-year deal and re-signed Leon Washington to join Shonn Greene in the backfield. "The Titans were ready to move on," Johnson said in his interview with The Tennessean. "They didnt want me anymore. But everything is going to work out." Johnson was the 24th overall pick in the 2008 draft out of East Carolina, and had never missed a game because of injury -- despite having surgery after the season to repair a torn meniscus that he played with most of the year. He has 7,965 career yards on 1,742 carries for a 4.6-yard average, including 50 touchdowns, and ranks third on Tennessees franchise rushing list behind Eddie George and Earl Campbell. Johnson also has caught 272 passes for 2,003 yards and eight TDs. Nike Air Max 95 España . - Because they didnt go into Beast Mode, the Seattle Seahawks found themselves in Spin Mode.

A.J. Green, who missed the past three games with a toe injury, caught three passes for 44 yards and a score and Mohamed Sanu finished with a touchdown and 95 yards on four grabs for the Bengals (5-2-1), who have gone 13-0-1 in their last 14 home games.

Hurns caught his second touchdown of the day from 18 yards out with 9:55 to play, but Bortles pass to Shorts on the two-point conversion attempt was incomplete to keep it a 26-16 game. The Jaguars cashed in on another Bengals turnover. Daltons pass deflected off the back of an offensive lineman and was intercepted by J.T. Thomas III, who returned it to the 7-yard line. Robinson ran for two yards before getting his team within three points on a 5-yard plunge with 8:13 to play Hill, however, needed just nine seconds to extend the Jaguars lead back to 10 points.

The Bengals extended their lead to 19-3 with an 8-play, 62-yard drive coming out of halftime. Dalton hit Sanu with a 36-yard pass and three plays later, Hill, who returned to the game after tweaking his knee, scampered into the end zone from a yard out.dddddddddddd Jacksonville responded with a touchdown drive of its own. Cecil Shorts hauled in a 20-yard pass and after a Robinson fumble was reversed, Bortles rolled out to his right and aired out a deep strike down field to Hurns for a 40-yard score. Sherrod Martin dove in front of Sanu to pick off Dalton, giving the Jaguars the ball at their own 29 with under five minutes to play in the third. Jacksonville was forced to punt after its drive stalled at the Bengals 43. Adam Jones returned Bryan Angers punt 31 yards to the Jaguars 23 and it tk Cincinnati just two plays to extend its lead. Hill ran five yards before Dalton connected with Green on an 18-yard score for a 26-10 lead early in the fourth. Jacksonville opened the scoring with 1:21 remaining in the opening stanza after Josh Scobee capped a 10-play, 79-yard drive with a 25-yard field goal. Cedric Peerman hauled in a short pass and moved the chains on third down with a 17-yard gain. After a pair of runs by Hill, Dalton found Sanu for a 19-yard score and a 7-3 lead just over three minutes into the second quarter. Dalton aired out a 33-yard pass to Sanu, who made an over-the-shoulder catch to place the Bengals down at the Jaguars 9. Cincinnati settled for a 31-yard Mike Nugent field goal with 4:25 remaining in the first half after Green had a 12-yard TD catch nullified for lining up offsides. After Bortles was sacked by Carlos Dunlap for a loss of eight yards at the Jaguars 11, Tyler Mays blocked Angers punt and the ball flew out of bounds in the end zone for a safety and a 12-3 advantage.
