Tennessee Titans’ running back Chris Johnson has never been know for his shining attitude and he’s proving his reputation by not meeting new Titans’ coach Ken Whisenhunt.
On Thursday, former Titans’ linebacker Keith Bulluck called Johnson out for being a “me” person.
“If I wanted to be there and it was important to me, I would make it my duty — especially considering I have a house there — I would make it my business to get in and say, ‘Look, what’s going on, blah, blah, blah,’” Bulluck told Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com. “Even if I’m not going to be on the team, just to meet him. It’s just professionalism. But, I will say, different strokes for different folks. Some people are too cool for school, some people don’t get it, they don’t get how things work. You know, CJ’s been there a while. You guys have been covering him, you know what type of person he is.
“He’s a friend of mine but when it comes to athlete, he’s a ‘me’ person. He’s a ‘me’ person when it comes to the athlete. For the years that he’s been there, it’s never been his fault why he didn’t have a good running game or why he didn’t have a good game. It was always somebody else’s fault. I’m not surprised that CJ hasn’t come in to even meet coach or see what’s going on in general. I’m not surprised by that.”
Johnson rushed for 1,077 yards and six touchdowns on 279 carries last season, his sixth straight 1,000 yard season.
