This isn’t the only major move the Titans are expected to make, but parting ways with Johnson has been a speculative possibility for some time now.
Of course the Titans could always shop Johnson around the league before deciding to ultimately part ways with him.
Johnson, 28, is in just the third year of his six-year contract worth $55.26 million, which included $30 million guaranteed. Johnson counts $6 million against the Titans’ 2014 salary cap, but they would save $4 million by parting ways with him.
In 2013, Johnson’s yards per carry has dipped to 3.8. He has 774 yards rushing and another 268 yards receiving to go along with seven total touchdowns this season.
If Tennessee were to part ways with Johnson, he would clearly have a decent amount of interest on the open market. We’ll have more regarding Johnson in the coming weeks.
