RB David Johnson Says Contract Talks are Progressing with Cardinals

Cardinals star running back David Johnson says that things are progressing in contract talks, and that he thinks a deal will get done sooner rather than later with the team.

Johnson told azcardinals.com that contract talks are progressing and that he will leave it to his agents to work things out.

“I’m here to play football,” he told azcardinals.com, the team’s web site. “I trust my agency, Sportstars, and I know they’ll get it done when the time comes.”

Johnson said his decision to report to camp was “about being here for the team, the players, my brothers, so that’s what we decided.”

He was optimistic about a deal getting done.

“The Cardinals want me to play for them for a long time, and I want to be here for a long time,” Johnson told azcardinals.com. “So definitely things are going in a positive way.”

Johnson is entering his fourth NFL season. A third-round draft pick out of Northern Iowa, Johnson had an All-Pro season two years ago, when he led the NFL in yards from scrimmage. He set an NFL record by topping 100 yards in each of the first 15 games of the season.

But he fractured his left wrist in the season opener a year ago and didn’t play again.

Now, Johnson said he’s in the best shape of his life. Videos he posts on twitter showed him working out.
