If there’s anything to take away from Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans, it’s he’s never afraid to go out on a limb and claim to be the best running back in the league. While the argument can be made that Johnson did sit near the top of the league a few years ago when it comes to being one of the best, he’s become nothing but a selfish running back since then and his reaction to the team’s decision to sign Shonn Greene is the perfect example of why.
The Titans recently gave Greene a three-year, $10 million deal and instead of being excited to bring on another running back to compliment him in the backfield, all Johnson cared about was discussing how he’s not a fan of the two-back system. Johnson made it clear that he’s not afraid of a little competition–just the fact that he doesn’t think it’s worth paying someone like Greene that type of money to be used for certain situations on offense.
First off, if Greene is going to help Tennessee put points up on the board, why should something like this even matter? Football is a team sport and if Greene is finding ways to get into the end zone to help the Titans win games–Johnson should be all for it.
Comments like these prove once again how selfish Johnson is and he better figure out a way to become a better team player soon considering his numbers from the last two seasons haven’t been anything to brag about it either.
