The New York Jets are taking the next step toward potentially signing running back Chris Johnson.

Gang Green is hosting the veteran runner at its training facility, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoportreported Tuesday, citing a source who spotted Johnson in the building. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news.

With the Jets‘ run-first mentality, pairing the uber-durable Johnson with the often-injured Chris Ivory makes complete sense. However, several reports have indicated that general manager John Idzik only is interested in Johnson at the right price.
