adidas today announced a multiyear partnership with running back Chris Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals.
Johnson, the reigning record holder of the NFL’s 40-yard dash with a time of 4.24, made the announcement at the 2016 NFL Combine. The running back will debut adidas Football cleats for the 2016-17 season and be featured in upcoming adidas brand marketing campaigns.
In just his second year as a pro, Johnson won the NFL rushing title with 2,006 yards (one of only seven players ever to break 2,000), and went to break Marshall Faulk‘s record of total yards from scrimmage with 2,509. Johnson has named to Pro Bowl three times and was the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year in 2009.
