Another year, another declaration from running back Chris Johnson.  He is one of just seven players in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, having gone for 2,006 in 2009.  Since then he hasn’t even hit 1,400 yards in any season but he still believes he can make history by running for 2,000 yards more than once.

“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,” Johnson told the New York Daily News. “I know I have the ability.”

“I don’t feel like I’m getting older or I lost a step. I still feel good. I still feel explosive,” he said. “I just know the type of player I am, I’d never sell myself short.”

Johnson might have even more trouble this year after being released by the Tennessee Titans and being picked up by the New York Jets.  The Jets like to spread the ball so it’s going to be difficult to hit that mark.
