The former 2,000-yard rusher said Thursday during a conference call that his left knee is "getting better and better" every day and says he's "pretty close" after having a torn meniscus repaired after last season. He added that a report suggesting he has arthritis in the knee is "not accurate.".
Analysis: Johnson was signed Wednesday by the Jets after he was released by the Tennessee Titans on April 7. After balking at splitting carries last season, Johnson says this year "is about winning," and sharing the workload with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell isn't an issue.

Johnson met with the Jets all day Tuesday and stayed in town to watch the Knicks-Nets game in Brooklyn Tuesday night before signing Wednesday. The team announced the move, but didn't release terms.
Analysis: Johnson was officially released by the Titans on April 7, three days after being told by the team of its decision. The former 2,000-yard rusher will team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to give coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg a versatile and deep backfield. Johnson, who turns 29 in September, is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.

Analysis: Johnson was released by the Titans last Monday. The former 2,000-yard rusher is meeting with the team at its facility Tuesday, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Jets don't make player visits public. The Jets would like Johnson to team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to form a potentially potent trio. Johnson, who turns 29 in September, is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.

Analysis: The Titans announced Johnson has been told he will be released Friday. The decision comes before they start their offseason program Monday with new coach Ken Whisenhunt. Johnson has the most touchdown runs of 80 yards or longer in NFL history with six - twice the total of anyone else in a group including Adrian Peterson, Barry Sanders and O.J. Simpson. He also has 12 career TD runs of at least 45 yards, trailing only Sanders (18) and Jim Brown (13) in that category.
