Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has seen and heard all the praise Adrian Peterson got this season after rushing for 2,000 yards, and he wants in.
Johnson was a guest on the Jim Rome show, and even though its been three years since 2,509 total yards from scrimmage, Johnson told Rome he will rush for 2,000 yards again as a Titan.
“I know I have another 2,000-yard season in me,” Johnson told “The Jim Rome Show” on Tuesday. “I would love to get 2,000 yards again, but I haven’t been to the playoffs since my rookie year. I want to get back there.”
Rome asked Johnson if he can still run a 4.28 40 yard dash?
“Have I been caught yet?”
Johnson said the additions of veteran left guard Andy Levitre and Alabama stud rookie right guard Chance Warmack have him thinking about a mid-career renaissance.
“I was like, ‘Thank God,'” Johnson said. “(It showed) they’re trying to put somebody in front of me and opening some more holes for me.”
