Tennessee has been negotiating with Chris Johnson’s agent since the lockout was lifted a few weeks ago. Reinfeldt added that Johnson’s presence at the teams training camp was contingent upon getting a deal finalized. Tennessee is installing a new offensive scheme so it’s important that they have their best player up to speed once the season starts.
Obviously Johnson is a very important component of the Titans but it’s hard to image that they would have any success without him. Johnson has said that he wants to be paid a record salary for running backs so it will be interesting to see how close the Titans get to that number.
