Great sign for the Jets Dan Leberfeld

People around the league wondered if running back Chris Johnson would lose a step after off-season knee surgery.

Based on his preseason performance for the Jets against the Giants, he looks as fast as ever.

He had four big chunk plays.

On a Jets drive in the first quarter, he had a 16-yard reception and a 17-yard run.

On another Jets drive in the third quarter, he caught a 19-yard pass and had a 12-yard run.

On all these plays, he showed great wheels. It looks like his speed, in the 4.3 area, is intact.

This signing could turn out to be one of the real steals in free agency this year.
