Chris Johnson Unlikely To Be Released Following The Season

Pro Football Weekly writes that there’s no question that the Titans should pick up RB Chris Johnson‘s $9 million option.

PFW adds that Tennessee has plenty of cap space to work with, so the steep price tag isn’t exactly the same kind of obstacle for them that it would be for other NFL teams. They also cite Johnson’s durability and explosiveness as other reasons why the Titans would be wise to keep the running back around.

Johnson has manged to get his yards-per-carry up to 4.9 and sits just 7 yards away from his fifth consecutive 1000 yard season. Even so, Pro Football Focus has Johnson listed as the No. 47 best running back out of 57 qualifying players.
