Chris Johnson offers cars for yards

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans running back Chris Johnson has plenty of incentive to get to 2,000 rushing yards. Only five NFL players have done it.

Johnson, named AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday, said he thinks his offensive linemen want the milestone even more.

"It's a goal of mine," he said. "It's really a goal of the offensive linemen because I told them if I get to 2,000 yards I'd buy them all a car. They want me to get 2,000 yards more than I want to get it.''

The second-year pro leads the NFL in rushing with 824 yards through seven games after racking up a franchise-record 228 last Sunday against the Jaguars.

At his current pace, Johnson would finish just short of 2,000 yards. But with more games like last Sunday's he'd get there easily, and his linemen are already imagining the possibilities.

"I am a truck guy, but a free car is a free car," tackle David Stewart said. "I have to fit in it; that is going to be the key.''
