One of CBS’s Rapid Reports yesterday reported that the Tennessee Titans’ RB Chris Johnson has
Added work in the weight room and a stricter diet enabled RB Chris Johnson to add eight to nine pounds of muscle since the season ended. “I started working a month earlier this year in the offseason,” Johnson, who is up to 197 pounds, said. “It’s a situation where I wanted to be heavier.”
Johnson has always looked small on the field, though he’s a decent sized running back. On one side, it’s always good that weight put on is muscle, but on the other side, this last year people criticized CJ for being slower than past years and not making cuts, amongst other things.
I for one, did not think he was slower or less agile, but that’s just me. And I feel pretty alone on my island.
With this added weight, will Johnson be able to keep the speed that made him CJ2K? With the added weight and there already being questions about his speed, you have to be curious if he’s still got the burn.
He has been attending the offseason workouts as a stipulation of his new contract. He’s also always been one to take care of his body.
As with everything else, we’ve just gotta wait to see him on the field.
