According to New York Daily News, the 28-year-old Johnson stated '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,'. The three-time Pro Bowler is known for breaking big runs, but he has also had slow starts to his last few seasons. If he plans on running for 2,000 yards he will need to find the solution to his early-season problems.
The New York Jets have a lot of new pieces on offense this year, and Chris Johnson believes he can be a very valuable one. If he can achieve the 2,000 rushing yards again, it would be only the seventh time in NFL history that a player ran for 2,000+ yards in a season.
