Chris Johnson Says He’s Not Selfish For Wanting 2,000 Yards Rushing


Titans running back Chris Johnson has made no secret of his goal to rush for 2,000 yards in a season.  Johnson has predicted that he will return to his glory days of 2009 when he had over 2,500 yards from scrimmage.

Johnson said that every season his goal is to rush for 2,000 yards, but that doesn’t make him selfish according to the Tennessean.

“Every year coming in I have a goal, but every time I say what my goal is, everybody thinks I am a selfish player and not a team player,” Johnson said at organized team activities on Tuesday. “Every year I want to rush for 2,000 yards, and I feel like if we are doing what is right and we are making plays on Sunday, if I get to that yardage I feel like we can be a playoff team and hopefully win the Super Bowl.”

With the acquisition of Shonn Greene, Johnson may not get the touches to rush for 2,000 yards, but the goal is lofty, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
