News: Following the NFL draft, Johnson remains a free agent.
Impact: For now, there doesn't seem to be much free agent interest in Johnson, who was let go by the Jets in February, though the Dallas Morning News relays that Johnson himself suggests that he might be a good fit for the Cowboys, who did not draft a running back despite losing DeMarco Murray in free agency. Per NFL.com, Johnson, who sustained a gun shot wound to his shoulder during a March 8 incident in Florida, has resumed working out and doesn't appear to be exhibiting any lingering effects from the injury. At this stage, the Cowboys suggest that they are comfortable with their current backfield corps, but Johnson could draw some interest as the offseason progresses, once running back injuries mount.
