Running Back for the Tennessee Titans
Chris Johnson Biography
Chris Johnson was born September 23, 1985 in Orlando, Florida and is a running back for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. Johnson has become one of the league's premier players, and a Pro Bowl starter in each of his two seasons.
Unheralded out of Orlando, Florida, Johnson emerged as a senior at East Carolina where he broke out for 2,960 all-purpose yards and 24 touchdowns. He was drafted by the Titans 24th overall in 2008, running a record-tying 4.24 sec in the 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. In his second year of professional football, he broke Marshall Faulk's record of total yards from scrimmage with 2,509 and became the sixth back in NFL history to rush over 2,000 yards. He was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year in 2009.
In week 2, Johnson became the first player in NFL history to record touchdowns of 50+, 60+, and 90+ in the same game which included a 91 yard touchdown run which matched the franchise's longest run set by Sid Blanks. He finished the day with 197 yards rushing and 87 yards receiving. Through the first 16 weeks of the 2009 NFL season, Johnson led the league with 1,872 yards and 5.8 yards per carry, including a game against the Jaguars in which he had 228 yards, helping the Titans achieve their first victory of the season. By midseason, Sports Illustrated's Kerry J. Byrne argued that Johnson is currently the best running back in the NFL, ahead of Adrian Peterson.
In weeks 6 through 12, Johnson had an active streak of six games over 125 yards, which tied the NFL record shared by Earl Campbell and Eric Dickerson. Johnson also set the single month record for rushing, with 800 yards in November 2009, which broke the previous record set by Ricky Williams who ran for 797 yards in November 2002. Also in the 2009 season, Johnson had 3 touchdown runs of 85+ yards. No other player has achieved that many in a career. On December 29, 2009, Johnson was selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl, his second in as many years.
On January 3, 2010, Johnson became just the 6th running back in NFL history to reach the 2,000 yard mark. Against the Seattle Seahawks, he rushed for 134 yards, which also broke Earl Campbell's franchise rushing record. He gained 154 yards from scrimmage in the game bringing his total to 2,509 for the season breaking Marshall Faulk's previous record of 2,429 yards. For his efforts, Johson was awarded the NFL Offensive Player of the Year, but failed to garner a single vote as NFL MVP for the 2009 season.
