Watch: David Johnson’s first pitch attempt proves he’s better off on a football field

If anyone needed a reminder of why Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is not a quarterback, his attempt at a ceremonial first pitch provided proved that he shouldn’t collect a pay check throwing a ball.

Although Johnson looked the part after changing into a retro Diamondbacks jersey in honor of throwback night and then loosening up with a resistance band, his pitch sailed far from the reach of Arizona pitcher Shelby Miller before rolling all the way to the backstop.

The Diamondbacks poked fun at the “incomplete pass” on both Twitter and Instagram, confirming that Johnson should probably stick to running the ball.

Johnson finished the 2016 season with 293 carries for 1,239 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns, second-most in the NFL.
