TFD: Chris Johnson gets encouragement from Adrian Peterson, not in danger of losing starting job yet

That quote seems rather humorous now that Johnson -- fresh off a holdout that netted him a $53 million extension, including $30 million in guaranteed money -- is averaging 2.8 yards per carry and is essentially splitting time with a more effective Javon Ringer.
Peterson, meanwhile, is as good -- if not better -- than ever and would have to be considered the NFL's best back by 100 percent of sane people. Why, he even apparently called Johnson recently to tell him to "keep his head up."
Classy move by All Day, even if it might have rubbed salt in an old wound.
