The Tennessee Titans are looking to trade running back Chris Johnson this offseason, and intend to cut him if they cannot find any takers, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio.

Johnson has struggled since his breakout 2,006 yard season in 2009, failing to run for over 1,300 yards in any season since. He put up a career-low 3.9 yards per attempt in 2013 for 1,077 rushing yards.

The former All-Pro has also drawn criticism for his locker room demeanor, with former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck, who played with the team for two seasons, telling ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky that Johnson hurts the team with his selfish attitude.

"He's a friend of mine but when it comes to athlete, he's a 'me' person. He's a 'me' person when it comes to the athlete. For the years that he's been there, it's never been his fault why he didn't have a good running game or why he didn't have a good game. It was always somebody else's fault."

Johnson had also been criticized for failing to make an effort to meet with new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt.

The Titans would take a $10 million cap hit in 2014 if Chris Johnson remains on their roster.
