Keyshawn Johnson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Johnson met with the Titans on Friday, but left without an offer, the Tennessean reports. "I am looking at my options just like they are looking at theirs. At the end of the day, it was a good visit with the coaches," Johnson said.

Johnson added: "I don't have any timetable (for signing), to be honest with you. I don't have any rush on my part. I'll see what happens, and we'll see how things progress. But it's still early in the game for me." The Titans could use Johnson as they lack experience and production at the wide receiver position.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher has acknowledged that his team and Johnson have mutual interest in each other, the Tennessean reports.

In a phone call to the Chargers on Wednesday, Johnson's agent expressed his client's interest in playing for San Diego, but the team reportedly said that they are not interested, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Johnson wants to play for a contender at this point in his career, but the Chargers already have multiple receivers of similar capabilities. Also, while Johnson has seemingly mellowed over time, his penchant for being the center of attention would not seem to fit the type of players general manager A.J. Smith has assembled over the past four years.
Prior to his release, the Panthers paid Johnson a $2 million bonus, which was actually a deferred portion of his initial bonus that had been split over the first two years of his contract, the Rock Hill Herald reports.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday night he expects the team will take a look at Johnson, the Tennessean reports.

"We are interested in Keyshawn, to what extent I can't tell you. We'll look at the tape and see where he is," Fisher said on his radio show. "This is a deal that it could happen or it may not happen, we just don't know." Johnson would appear to be a perfect fit. The Titans have little or no experience at the wide receiver position. Their leading returning receiver from last season, Brandon Jones, caught just 27 passes.
Johnson was released by the Panthers on Tuesday, according to ESPNews.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After paying Johnson a $3 million roster bonus, the Panthers have cut ties with the former No. 1 pick. It's unclear at this time if comments Johnson made during coverage of the draft this weekend had anything to do with his release, but at the very least this will elevate the fantasy stock of rookie receiver Dwayne Jarrett.
Johnson has not given Panthers coach John Fox any indication that he'll follow through on his previous threat of retirement, with the firing of offensive coordinator Dan Henning this offseason, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Soon after the Henning firing, Johnson backed off of his original stance, so it sounds like the veteran wideout will be on the field opposite Steve Smith again in 2007.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Keyshawn Johnson.

2006

Itís ironic that the receiver who wrote a book called: Just Give Me the Damn Ball!, has evolved into a quintessential second fiddle Ė someone who can make catches and keep the chains moving, but who lacks any semblance of game-breaking talent. And thatís exactly the role he was brought in to fill for Carolina, a reliable second target for Jake Delhomme so defenses canít completely key on Steve Smith. Johnson has good size and strength, heís experienced enough to find the open spots in zone coverage and heís not afraid to make tough catches over the middle. But heís slow for a receiver, and he lacks the quickness to turn short completions into big gains. Johnson was targeted 22 times in the red zone a year ago, catching six for scores, but those six were his only scores because heís not a threat to score from much farther out.

2005

Johnson isnít as good as he thinks he is Ė even Randy Moss and Terrell Owens might have trouble meeting those delusional standards Ė but he isnít bad, either, catching 56 percent of his 126 targets and averaging 14 yards per catch last season. Johnsonís slow for a wideout, but at 6-4, 212 pounds, heís a big target with good hands and the courage to catch passes over the middle. The arrival of strong-armed Drew Bledsoe in Dallas this season should be an improvement over the venerable Vinny Testaverde, and Johnson should see a lot of work in the short and intermediate areas of the field. Despite his size, Johnsonís not much of a red-zone threat, converting just 2 of 12 passes from inside the 20 for scores.

2004

Johnson returns to Bill Parcells, who was able to get some decent TD production from him during their last time together (and before Keyshawn developed his end-zone allergy). If Johnson was half as good as he thinks he is, Gruden would have put up with his distractions. Johnson (31) isnít that old for a WR, and thereís some chance he recaptures a large measure of his Jetsí glory.

2003

Deactivated for the rest of the 2003 season by Tampa Bay on November 18.
