Chris Johnson Retires as Titan

Published

on

Former NFL running back Chris Johnson signed a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans so that he can retire with the team he has spent the best years, and the majority of his NFL career with.

Johnson also believes that if he was a feature back, he could still surpass 1,000 yards rushing in a complete NFL season

“Shoot, that’s not even a question” Johnson said, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans’ official team website . You put me in an offense where I’m the starting back, there’s no way I wouldn’t get 1,000 yards,” said Johnson. “I could still do it, but it’s time to move onto the next situation.”

“Tennessee, that’s the first organization that gave me a chance to make my dreams come true,” Johnson said. “I have so many great memories in Tennessee and was able to do so many things with the Titans. It’s an organization I always want to be considered a part of.

“I grew up in Tennessee. I went from being a kid to a grown man here. I might have grown up as a kid in (my hometown of) Orlando, but I was still a kid in Nashville when I got there. The team and the city, they’ve always shown me so much love. I have great memories from my days with the Titans, so many on the field and in the city. I’ve always loved Tennessee, and I always will because I’ve always felt so much love.”
