Former ECU star Chris Johnson races cheetah for upcoming TV special

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Former ECU star Chris Johnson is staying mum on how he fared in a race against a cheetah, but come November, viewers will find out in a cable TV special.
    
The Titans running back and Chicago receiver Devin Hester both took part in the human versus animal race.

Johnson said he ran at full speed, but most people don't give Hunter or Johnson much of a chance against the big cat.
    
A year ago, some didn't give Johnson a chance against defenses; he was repeatedly questioned whether he had lost a step, or more. He responded by scoring three touchdowns of 80 yards or longer, giving him six in his career.

Johnson is about to enter his sixth season with a new position coach. He's once again attempting to run the Titans to the playoffs.

    A nice firm handshake has long been a mark of good manners and elevated social skills, but it's also a very germy way to greet your fellow humans.
