Chris Johnson was regarded as one of the NFL's top running backs in 2009 when he ran for 2,006 yards.
Perhaps his image as a premier running back took a hit because he hasn't been able to replicate those numbers, though he's posted 1,000-yard seasons since.
Now that he's with the Jets, Johnson believes he can return to CJ2K form.
“I’d just retire and not play anymore if I didn’t feel like I was still capable of being a 2,000-yard back,” Chris Johnson told the New York Daily News. “I know I have the ability.”
If there was ever a team for a running back to go to in what's become a passing league it would be the Jets. Rex Ryan is a run-first head coach and Geno Smith is still learning the nuances of the professional game as a passer. Jets fans could find themselves pleased with this offseason acquisition.
