Earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints brought in running back David Johnson for a tryout. On Friday afternoon, he gave an update on his future with the team.

Johnson revealed he was unable to sign a deal with the Saints.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t agree but appreciate the @Saints for this opportunity,” Johnson tweeted. “Journey to continue.”

Johnson, a former Pro Bowl running back and All-Pro, finished the 2021 season with 228 rushing yards on 67 carries.

When he was at his best in 2016, Johnson had 2,118 scrimmage yards and 20 total touchdowns for the Arizona Cardinals.

It’s unclear what the future holds for Johnson.

When one of Johnson’s supporters told him he should reunite with the Cardinals, he had an interesting response.

” Where it all began “, he has answered. “Who knows…..The Red Sea always has a special place in my heart.”

Johnson will need to earn a training camp invite if he is to have any chance of making the 53-man roster for Week 1 of the 2022 regular season.
