Sports briefs: Jets sign former Titan running back Chris Johnson
First Published Apr 16 2014 08:59 pm • Last Updated Apr 16 2014 10:15 pm

NFL • The New York Jets and former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a two-year deal. The team announced the move Wednesday, but didn’t release terms. Johnson was officially released by the Titans on April 7.

• A person familiar with the deal says quarterback Josh Freeman has agreed to terms with the New York Giants. Freeman was cut by Tampa Bay in October after a messy split. He signed with Minnesota four days later, but played just one game for the Vikings. Freeman would compete to back up Eli Manning with the Giants.
