Chris Johnson said there's "no way" he'd accept a pay cut for the 2014 season, and that his 2013 struggles have been a "team effort."
"I donít feel like itís all my fault," the former 2,000-yard rusher said of entering Week 17 averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. "Itís a team effort." Johnson is right, of course, but is the rare NFL player to shift the blame to his teammates. He has done so consistently throughout his career. Going on 29, Johnson is convinced he's still a top-shelf playmaker. "I know when I get the ball and put in the right situation I can still do the same things." Johnson doesn't have a prayer of collecting his $8 million salary for 2014. NFL.com reported earlier this month that he's expected to be released.
