Chris Johnson’s dreads could be appearing all over the stands at Titans games in the upcoming future, but it is not going to please the Titans' star running back.
Johnson is threatening a lawsuit against two men allegedly trying to make some money from his dreadlocks. Their intent is to sell "Dreads on a Stick" which will allow Titans fans and fans of the running back to have the star running back's hair as a wig.
This is something that he is not endorsing and will take legal action to bring the entrepreneurs down if they start to dupe his fans and distribute the product which Johnson wants nothing a part of.
This will fuel Johnson, who is a power runner, in the game against the Bengals this weekend.
The Titans offense has been looking increasingly better each weekend. Matt Hasselbeck is getting more familiar and very comfortable with his new team and this is helped by the great running game, which is spearheaded by Johnson.
Johnson look-alikes may be appearing in the stands soon, but he will be grinding out yards while his head is thinking about how he is going to sink the “Dreads on a Stick” creators.
While he has all the rights to sue over the men using his name to sell the product, it begs the question: Who would want to utilize one of these products?
Johnson is one of the elite backs in the NFL, even though this season has been a bit of a slow; one with him only coming on of late. Johnson is a rusher who can put up 100-yard games—which he has one of this season.
He is a player that you want to support, but to hold a wig styled as his dreadlocks is not something that will start to appear all over in the Titans' stadium.
The idea will more than likely flounder, so Johnson should let his anger be taken out on the gridiron rather than in the courtroom.
