Javon Ringer was drafted in 2009 by the Tennessee Titans, the same year Chris Johnson rushed for over 2,000 yards. Despite threats to sit out last year, Chris Johnson has yet to miss a game during Ringer’s tenure in Tennessee, meaning he has never had the chance to be a number one back.

But he is still hoping that opportunity comes soon.

With only one more year left on his rookie contract, Ringer told the Detroit Free Press, that he is already thinking about his options he might have as a starter elsewhere at the end of the year.

“Sooner or later, I hope to get a legitimate chance to prove myself,” Ringer said. “This is my contract year, so I’m hoping and praying for the best.”

However, while only averaging 3.1 rushing yards a carry last year, Ringer will unlikely find a team willing to give him a shot as a starter. Unless Johnson misses games this year, Ringer will have to rely on another back being injured, before he gets his shot on the next team he signs with.

  • payton is off the hook. SUPER BOWL? great quaterback.

  • payton, great quaterback, SUPERBOWL? YEA!

  • Brick-hand Sanders from the Steelers? Is Manning a receivers coach now? Manning was on his game. Weren’t the Chargers without their starting corners? Still played great. Broncos defense stuffing the Chargers running game was impressive. That 30 yarder floated in there nice. Is it me or does Peyton’s passes look like a 30 yard bomb? That crap won’t work in the playoffs when Ravens defenders are used to practicing against Flacco who throws 70-yarders.
