Chad Johnson Update: Jets Have 'Remote' Interest

The New York Jets are never shy about making a controversial move.

With Chad Johnson on the market after the Miami Dolphins cut ties with him, rumors have been floating around about where the receiver will land next. According to Mike Florio of PFT, the chances of the Jets signing him are "remote."

Two years ago Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie were acquired despite character concerns belying both of them. This offseason, Tim Tebow was brought in even though many felt it would hurt the development of Mark Sanchez. However, it doesn't look as if the team is willing to bring in another big name who could alter the locker room chemistry again.

New York has an obvious need at wide receiver, but is Johnson someone can fill the void and be a good teammate? Although the idea has to be enticing to a team that enjoys the back page, the Jets seem to be standing pat.
