Johnson, who missed all but one game last year because of a wrist injury, discussed his outlook during an appearance on NFL Network's Good Morning Football:
The 26-year-old Northern Iowa product nearly accomplished the feat in 2016 when he rushed for 1,239 yards and tallied 879 receiving yards. He added 20 touchdowns.
His absence for a majority of last season is the main reason why Arizona's offense dropped from ninth to 22nd in yards per game.
Johnson was cleared to rejoin team activities in April. Arizona head coach Steve Wilks sounded optimistic about his performance in offseason practice Tuesday.
"He looked outstanding today," he told reporters. "It's good to have him back out there. Just flying around and the things that he's doing right now is pretty exciting."
Barring any setbacks, Johnson should assume a major workhorse role in the Cardinals offense once again, giving him a chance to make a serious push toward the dual 1,000-yard season. He's the clear lead back ahead of Chase Edmonds and Elijhaa Penny.
He'd join Roger Craig and Marshall Faulk as the only players to accomplish the feat.
