Chris Johnson and Chad Ochocinco will apparently race each other to support Haiti, which is reeling from a devastating earthquake. According to a tweet written by the Bengals receiver, the loser will donate his Pro-Bowl salary to Haiti relief efforts. (Click HERE to help out.)
The two NFL stars exchanged in a bout of trash talking on Twitter, with Ochocinco saying he is "gonna dust" Johnson. The Titan fired back: "come on son u must be trippin I don't want to hurt ur feelings and make u have a bad off season." He later added that he "knows for a fact u not a 4.2 straight up don't make a shame of urself." (Scroll down for screengrabs of the tweets.)
A previous rumor speculated that Johnson would race world-record sprinter Usain Bolt, but Bolt's agent denied the report.
Ochocinco has been working on a new tattoo and just bought himself a "super truck" for his birthday, while Johnson is fresh off a season in which he rushed for more than 2,000 yards and set an NFL record for yards from scrimmage in a single season. Those numbers earned him the Offensive Player of the Year award.
