CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Titans are "very likely" to release Chris Johnson next week.
La Canfora expects Johnson to draw "strong interest" in free agency. The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt anticipates the Falcons being in the running for Johnson. Johnson turns 29 in September and averaged a career-worst 3.9 YPC despite Tennessee pumping major funds and a top-ten pick (Chance Warmack) into its O-Line. He'll likely be a change-up back on his next team.

A lot of running backs starting to find landing places. My bet on where #Titans RB Chris Johnson eventually ends up: #Falcons
The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt expects Chris Johnson to eventually land with the Falcons.
Johnson could form an aging one-two punch with Steven Jackson in Atlanta. Wyatt doesn't say whether he expects Johnson to be traded to the Falcons, or sign with them after getting cut, but he's a highly reliable beat reporter and we'd take his projection seriously. It would be a tough spot for CJ?K's fantasy outlook due to the presence of Jackson and a weak offensive line.
