Chris Johnson Says He’ll Rush For 2,000 Yards Again


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.”
