Conner spent his rookie season sitting behind, and learning from Tony Richardson. That year he rushed the ball a mere 8 times for 44 yards and one TD, getting most of his work on special teams.

In 2011, John started 8 games at fullback, and led the way for Shonn Greene’s first 1,000 yard season as a pro. He himself ran the ball just 13 times for 44 yards and one TD as well.

Let’s look back to why he was loved during Hard Knocks:

There is competition in camp this year in the person of Fui Vakapuna, and some feel that his job could be in jeopardy. One knock on him is that sometimes he too quickly runs to a spot, and forgets to hit somebody coming because they aren’t in his spot. As a fullback, you have to hit whomever is coming, and if he doesn’t, he could very well lose his job.

Personally, we love the “Terminator”, and hope he sticks around.
