Chris Johnson fits with the Bears better than any other team.


Chris Johnson at the age of 28 would be the ultimate complement to Forte. If the Bears could sign him to a 3 year $9 million deal with $5 million guaranteed ($3m the first year, $2m the 2nd) they would no doubt upgrade the roster. Forte and Johnson can both be used in multiple positions, slot back, wide out, full back, split back, half back. This would open up the playbook even more and give the defense another play making threat in the backfield (whether paired with Forte, or spelling Forte) for which our receivers would benefit. With the Chicago Bears blocking receivers, a double screen with Forte and Johnson could be nearly impossible to stop. Considering the Bears outside run attack this seems the most ideal fit for Johnson. Backup/split running backs up in age make almost the same money now adays as do the starters. They also last longer giving them more years to enjoy the NFL lifestyle, CJ2K must understand he will only wear down and struggle as a #1, but when paired with another threat he could legitimately improve his stock (improve as being a multiple threat instead of a just rb) and maintain longevity (through catching more then running) i.e. darren sproles. Having no drop off when Forte is out and maintaining Fortes shelf life would be worth the investment into CJ2k....not too mention if they go two backs split with Martellus and then Marshall and Jefferey split out defenses would throw up the white flag. Final note, small investment, pays amazing dividends.
