To this point, Chris Johnson hasn’t squeezed a single contract offer out of the Titans.
But he has a number in mind.
Johnson spoke with (and raced) Michael Smith of ESPN 60 recently, and said he wants $30-40 million guaranteed in a new contract.
It doesn’t shock us Johnson wants quarterback/left tackle money, but he’s not going to get it. Three years remain on the running back’s current deal. Any renegotiation that happens this year (or next) will reflect that the Titans don’t have to do anything.
Perhaps Johnson could earn that much on the open market, but he’s years away from that.
