Explosive, dynamic and just plain fast! Chris “CJ2K” Johnson has shattered countless records and is widely regarded as one of the fastest and most valuable running backs in the National Football League. With three Pro Bowls, an All Pro, an ESPY Award, and numerous “Player of the Year” awards including the prestigious AP and Fedex Ground awards, Chris has set the tone for running backs and offensive standouts around the NFL.
An unheralded track and football phenom out of Orlando, Florida, Johnson emerged as a senior at East Carolina where he broke out for 2,960 all-purpose yards and 24 touchdowns. He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans as the 24th overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft, after running an impressive and record-tying 4.24 second 40-yard dash. In his second year of professional football, he was awarded the NFL rushing title with 2,006 yards (only the sixth player ever to break 2,000) and was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year. Some consider Chris’ 2009 season to be one of the best of running backs in the history of the NFL.
Although Chris’ accomplishments, awards and accolades on the field are enough to impress even the biggest critics, his talents and interests transcend the football field. Chris has a passion for the fashion industry and even customizes all of his clothing to fit his own personal style and vision. He has expressed an interest in integrating himself further into the fashion world and his style sense has often been applauded and emulated. He is also extremely knowledgeable and passionate about music and the industry. Perhaps most important is Chris’ inherent desire to give back. He has illustrated time and time again through The Chris Johnson Foundation and other philanthropic endeavors, the importance of contributing and acting as a role model to our younger generations.
Chris has graced the covers of publications such as DUB, ESPN The Magazine, Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, Eastbay, Stack Magazine and more. He has been featured in Urban Ink, Men’s Fitness, and many other men’s interest and main stream publications. Chris is a huge name in the fantasy football world, and has been credited with being a major influencer in the recent success of fantasy football. He can often be seen on ESPN, NFL Network, FOX and was recently featured racing a Cheetah on National Geographic's.
In just five seasons in the NFL, Chris has accomplished more than most can hope to accomplish in an entire career. As one of the most talented and promising athletes in professional sports, this super star has only begun his journey on the road to stardom.
