The Titans and the agent for running back Chris Johnson are discussing a compromise that could get the All-Pro in training camp sooner than most expect.
Johnson, unhappy with his current contract, didn’t take part in the offseason program and missed all 14 days of organized workouts. He wants a long-term deal that would pay him at least $30 million in guarantees.
While the Titans still aren’t willing to do that, a short-term solution could give Johnson a smaller bump in pay following a season when he led the NFL with 2,006 rushing yards, and was named the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year.
This is really good news given Chris Johnson's average draft position is #1 in most fantasy leagues.
