Chris Johnson signs his new deal

Chris Johnson has officially received the pay raise he was looking for.

A league source tells the “pop” of this “mom and pop” operation (I hope that doesn’t make me the “mom”) that Johnson signed the deal on Thursday that PFT first reported was agreed to on Monday.  The contract will pay Johnson more money this season by accelerating some escalators that he had unlocked for future seasons.

So Johnson will arrive at Titans practices next week a happy camper.  And he’ll still that way — at least until next offseason.

    All these professional athletes that want new contracts before their current contracts have expired remind me of little shildren who cry and pester the hell out of you until they get their way.

    Maybe you’re just the other daddy. It’s a pop and pop operation.

    also, who spells Greg with two “g”s at the end.
    “Hi, I’m Tomm”
    ” What’s up, I’m Jimm”
    ” Hey, how ya’ doin’, I’m Frankk”

    Great idea, pay him so he can begin his career decline. Chris Johnson’s career will likely closely resemble Eric Dickerson’s, who also rushed for 2000+ yards in his 2nd year… and then never rushed for more than 4.6 ypc again. Johnson might still be pretty good, but he’ll never approach 2000 again. Bank on it!

    to actually comment on the football matter at hand, DallasCowboys.com beat writer Mickey Spagnola gives out a “Mr. Indespensable” award before the start of every season, that is, it is awarded to the player who the team could certainly not succeed without.
    Aside from the QB, which is obvious, C.J. is obviously the crown jewel of the Titans right now, and the player they can’t do without. The team will go only as high as his ability to take pressure off of Vince “Mentally not Ready” Young can be.

    Don’t take credit for originally breaking this story as a fact. You previously presented this as a deniable rumor by saying that your source was a ‘ league source’.

    Gregg, you are one of the children in the family operation. Your older brother, Florio Jr, is the musician.
