Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has already voiced his opinion about the team signing former Jets RB Shonn Greene, now Johnson's current backup (or shall we say former backup), Javon Ringer is calling it a slap in the face.
Way to make a new teammate feel at home.
“I am happy for Shonn because I know him from playing in the Big Ten, and he’s a good guy. He’s a good running back,” Ringer said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
"But when they got him I said, ‘Dang, they had some guys who never got a chance to play, so why are they adding someone like that?’ All this talk about them needing another running back to help C.J., it kind of made me upset. I’m like, ‘Man, they had some good running backs behind C.J., and they just never really got a chance.’ And because we were not able to play, it made it look like C.J. didn’t have any help. C.J. had some help, but they never used it. It’s frustrating.”
“I feel like I am a good running back. I just wasn’t able to give it a real good shot in Tennessee, but I do feel like the opportunities I got I was able to produce,” Ringer said. “I was backing up one of the NFL’s best running backs. Now I just want a shot, a fair opportunity, and hopefully I can get that somewhere else. . . . So many teams have their No. 1 running back, but you always see the other running back come in and get a chance. But in Tennessee I never really had a chance to play, and that’s the truth.”
