Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson had an incredible three-year start (2008-10) in the National Football League where he was named a Pro Bowl each year and provided the Tennessee Titans with the potent running attack that every NFL team salivates for.  The former East Carolina Pirate‚Äôs best year was his sophomore campaign (2009) where he would vault into rarified air with a 2,000 Rushing Yard season, which was not only NFL leading but would also see him finish atop the leaderboard in Rushing Attempts, Rushing Yards/Game, Touches and Yards From Scrimmage. 

We may have gone strong on our lead paragraph on his first three years but he had three more seasons for Tennessee where he had 1,000 Yard Rushing Seasons.  He would finish his career with a year in New York for the Jets and three for Arizona and overall he rushed for 9,451 Yards.
