If there was ever a current NFL running back who could help lead his team to a Super Bowl, it is David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals.
Not only would Johnson enjoy earning his first championship ring, he would love to help veterans Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald go out on top.

Both veterans are playing on borrowed time. That’s magnified with the 37-year-old Palmer, who struggled last season. He even tossed around the word retirement during the offseason. Earlier in the year, the team was not sure if Palmer or Fitzgerald would play in 2017.
Rest assured. Both veterans are returning to join Johnson in his quest to win Super Bowl 52. Unfortunately, the team missed the playoffs in 2016 after achieving postseason status the previous two years.
Another finish like last season’s 7-8-1 record won’t cut it. The Cardinals have to keep pace with the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West. They will also face other stiff NFC competition such as the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons.
In the end, we love Johnson’s enthusiasm and wish he and the Cardinals the best for a productive and healthy 2017 season.
