NFL rumors: Chris Johnson connected briefly to Arizona Cardinals

One report had the Cardinals interested in the running back, but that rumor was quickly squashed.

On Wednesday, an unexpected rumor popped up -- that the Arizona Cardinals -- one of many teams -- had interest in Titans running back Chris Johnson.

The report via Twitter indicated that the Card wouldn't be interested in trading for Johnson, but should the Titans release him.

However, not long after the rumor came up, Arizona Republic reporter Kent Somers stopped any speculation.

The way the running back room looks like so far for Arizona, it is fairly set. They have Andre Ellington, Stepfan Taylor, Ryan Williams, Jonathan Dwyer and Robert Hughes. That doesn't mean they won't add anyone, but Johnson has rushed for over 1000 yards each of his six seasons in the league, including a 2000-yard season in 2009.

However, he has had a whole bunch of carries -- over 1700 for his career. He is 28 years old and would likely back up Ellington.

So while the team might not have any interest right now, should they? The rumor wasn't true, but we can still talk about it, right? Hammer away.
