Johnson steps into NFL history with 6th 1,000 yard season

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

It took all 16 games but Titans running back Chris Johnson hit the 1,000 yard mark for the sixth straight season.   

Johnson is only the sixth player in NFL history to hit that mark.

In what was a disappointing season for Johnson he averaged a career low 3.8 yard per carry and finished with 1,077 yards.

Sunday against Houston Johnson turned in only his second 100 yard game of the season going for 127 yards on 27 carries.  He scored the lone Titans touchdown in the 16-10 victory over Houston.  That touchdown was the 50th of his career, only Eddie George and Earl Campbell have rushed for more in franchise history.

Johnson is due $8 million dollars next season and there is wide speculation he will not be retained at the figure. He has also made it clear he is not interested in taking a pay cut.
