Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was a guest on Jim Rome’s nationally syndicated CBS Sports Radio show Tuesday.
When asked about Tennessee’s offseason specifics, Johnson raised some eyebrows with his brutal honesty and confidence.
- On repeating a 2,000 yard season: “I know I have another 2,000 yard season in me… 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.”
- On the drafting of Alabama guard Chance Warmack in this year’s draft: “I was like ‘Thank God’… [It showed] they’re trying to put somebody in front of me and opening some more holes for me.”
- On the signing of Shonn Greene as the back-up running back: “I didn’t like the move, I didn’t think it was a smart move… [But] that’s because of being too quick to say things and not really knowing the whole objectives of things. Once the off-season started, being here, being in the playbook and seeing the type of things they’re trying to do, I don’t think it was really a bad choice. I’m not worried about him taking any carries.”
- On Greene taking away goal line carries: “At the end of the day you want to stay in there… [But] I’d rather have 2,000 yards than have 20 touchdowns, so you got to take the good with the bad.”
