Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson's jersey, shoes headed to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Not bad, rookie.

In just his second game as a pro, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson set an NFL record by becoming the first rookie in NFL history with a 50-plus-yard touchdown catch and 100-plus-yard kickoff return for a TD in his first two NFL games.

He also became the first player in the league history to record a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in his first two games.

As such, the jersey and shoes that the 2015 third-round draft pick wore Sunday at the Chicago Bears are on their way to Canton, Ohio, according to Cardinals media relations vice president Mark Dalton.

David Johnson scored on a game-clinching 55-yard reception in the Cards' Week 1 win over the New Orleans Saints. He followed that up by returning the opening kickoff 108 yards for a TD, and he added a 13-yard rushing touchdown in Arizona's Week 2 rout of the Bears.
