Just like the rest of the world, Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has been very impressed while watching Usain Bolt run in the Olympics.

“He is a great athlete,” Johnson said. “I think he’ll be the best track athlete ever to compete in the Olympics.”

Johnson still believes he could beat Bolt in a short race.

“I feel like if I would have kept training for track I’d have a chance, but I play football and he runs track, so it’s totally different,” Johnson said. “I think I could still probably beat him in the 40. If I actually trained for the distance he trained for, I think I’d have a chance.”

When Johnson who was a high school track star, clocked a 4.24  forty-yard dash.

“Training for football, we do a lot of short sprints — we do 40s and 50s and things like that. We don’t really train like track athletes,” Johnson said. “If a track athlete tried to come play football it would be totally different (for Bolt).”

I think everyone would love to see Johnson race Bolt.
