David Johnson is back in the fold with the Arizona Cardinals.
The question about whether the dynamic running back would continue his holdout was answered in a hurry when he was among the players returning from injuries to show up for the early portion of training camp.
Johnson [url=http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-anthony-barr-jersey]Anthony Barr Jersey Big[/url] , who figures to be the centerpiece of the Arizona offense under new coach Steve Wilks, did not take part in the team’s mandatory minicamp in a contract dispute.
But he reported Sunday and was in Monday’s first workouts. The entire team reports to camp Friday with the first practice Saturday. Rookies, quarterbacks and players coming off injuries report early. They will work out this week at the team’s practice facility before moving to the other side of suburban Phoenix for the full training camp at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
Johnson told azcardinals.com that contract talks are progressing and that he will leave it to his agents to work things out.
”I’m here to play football,” he told azcardinals.com, the team’s web site. ”I trust my agency, Sportstars, and I know they’ll get it done when the time comes.”
Johnson said his decision to report to camp was ”about being here for the team [url=http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-derrick-henry-jersey]Authentic Derrick Henry Jersey[/url] , the players, my brothers, so that’s what we decided.”
He was optimistic about a deal getting done.
”The Cardinals want me to play for them for a long time, and I want to be here for a long time,” Johnson told azcardinals.com. ”So definitely things are going in a positive way.”
Johnson is entering his fourth NFL season. A third-round draft pick out of Northern Iowa, Johnson had an All-Pro season two years ago, when he led the NFL in yards from scrimmage. He set an NFL record by topping 100 yards in each of the first 15 games of the season.
But he fractured his left wrist in the season opener a year ago and didn’t play again.
Now [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/philip-rivers-jersey]Womens Philip Rivers Jersey[/url] , Johnson said he’s in the best shape of his life. Videos he posts on twitter showed him working out .
Johnson participated in every offseason workout before watching from the sidelines at the final OTA session. He was a no-show the entire mandatory minicamp.
A contract agreement seems to be coming but any work on it done now would be without general manager Steve Keim, who is suspended by the team for five weeks for his DUI arrest.
Johnson is scheduled to make $1.9 million this season on the contract he signed as a rookie. That’s far below what a player of his caliber would get on the open market. Le’Veon Bell makes $14.5 million under the franchise tag. Devonta Freeman and LeSean McCoy will make $8 million this year as part of large, long-term deals.
But coming off an injury season complicates the contract situation. Johnson aims to be a better version of his 2016 self, with his sights set on 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving.
Prolific on twitter, Johnson announced his own return .
”It’s in Gods hands now [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/melvin-gordon-jersey]Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey[/url] ,” he wrote. ”Prime and ready to prove it! (hash)ImBack.”
The Buffalo Bills began addressing their needs at receiver by signing free agent Jeremy Kerley to a one-year contract as part of a series of moves in opening their offseason conditioning program.
Kerley has seven seasons of NFL experience, which include two separate stints with the New York Jets. Overall, he has 268 catches for 3,109 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Kerley will have an opportunity to contend for a backup spot behind Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones.
Buffalo also signed defensive tackle Tenny Palepoi. He has appeared in 44 games, all as a backup, over three NFL seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Bills on Monday also announced re-signing four exclusive rights free agents, including defensive end Eddie Yarbrough [url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/antonio-brown-jersey-authentic]Youth Antonio Brown Jersey[/url] , who started six games last year. Also re-signed were cornerback Lafayette Pitts and tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas.
In a separate development, the agent of former Buffalo running back Fred Jackson announced his client will sign a one-day contract Wednesday to formally retire as a member of the Bills.
Jackson has been out of football since spending the 2015 season with Seattle. The 37-year-old was a fan-favorite during his first eight seasons in Buffalo after making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2007. Jackson finished with 5,746 career-yards rushing and 39 touchdowns, including nine receiving.
