When running back Chris Johnson was torching opposing defenses during his time with the Tennessee Titans, he was among the fastest, if not the fastest player in the NFL.
Johnson first flashed his elite speed to the world in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in 2008 after posting a 4.24, which, according to NFL.com, is the second-fastest mark recorded in combine history.
We saw more of that speed once he hit the field for the Titans, making him a big-play machine en route to six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons to start his career, including a 2,000-yard campaign in 2009.
When speaking to TMZ Sports recently, the man known as “CJ2K” was asked if he is the fastest player in NFL history, to which he replied, “of course.”
Johnson believes that if John Ross, who holds the fastest 40 time in combine history, Tyreek Hill, Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson held a race all in their prime, he would beat them.
That would be incredible to watch, now all we have to do is to figure out how to build a time machine in order to bring back young CJ2K, Deion and Bo in order to confirm.
You already know we’d put our money on Johnson without a second thought.
