Chris Johnson will meet with Titans

Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt and owner Bud Adams both said over the weekend that they didn’t even see a point in talking to holdout running back Chris Johnson because the sides were so far apart. But they will talk this week.

Johnson wrote on Twitter today that he and his agent, Joel Segal, will be in Nashville tomorrow to talk to Reinfeldt. A league source confirmed to PFT that Johnson, Segal and Reinfeldt will meet on Wednesday.

“Flying out to Nashville tonight to meet with Joel and the GM in the morning to see which way were going. Could get better or worst,” Johnson wrote.

Meeting in Nashville seems like a step in the right direction. But the fact that Johnson thinks the situation could get worse is another indication that the sides remain far apart.

  1. “Could get better or worst,” Johnson wrote.”

    well at least we know where you stand grammar wise…

    i bet it gets worst….

  2. He’ll end up getting overpaid.

    They should trade him, running backs are easily replacable and they could probably get a damn good in return for him.

  3. Jim Wyatt also reported today that safety Vinny Fuller took a pay cut (he’s on the bubble) which sounds like it lopped about $1-1.2M off the 2011 cap, maybe.

    I was wondering if that might’ve been a precursor to some Johnson news. Maybe it gives the Titans a little more room to play with their parameters.

    After seeing a couple of the O-line deals that came in the last few days (Kalil and Thomas), I started to think that might’ve given them some more data points to talk about guaranteed money, between DeAngelo Williams money and Larry Fitzgerald money.

  4. as a texans fan i know this will never happen but trade the guy. he’s got signs of being albert haynesworth 2.0. it may set the titans back another few years but their not winning with hasselbeck anyway and locker (while my fav qb this year) is probably a season from starting at two or three from being playoff caliber (if he develops)

  5. I don’t like Bud Adams, but I LOVE the fact that he pulled Johnsons Punk Card by by saying he was not going to give him anything with the way he was acting.

  6. He’s going to mess up the first round of everyone’s drafts soooo bad if he doesn’t sign this week…

  7. After CJ says “I want a ‘histry’ deal. 8 years 150 million, 75 million guaranteed” Bud can emerge from the back room, fire off a double-fingered salute and drag Reinfeldt away

  8. I want to see “no-way CJ” say no to 30 million. I want the titans to formally make an offer and release that to the public.

    Personally, I’m happy with what the titans are doing without CJ. And if Manning’s not gonna start then the titans are in great shape for our division.

  9. Better or worst…what an idiot. Of course all you have to do is listen to him attempt to speak and you would know that.

    Amazing educational system, that NCAA.

  10. He will probably get overpaid. But good for him. He a top RB in da NFL. All the better for him if he does

  11. running backs are easily replaceable yes, replacing one that is as talented as cj2k is not. anybody that thinks the titans can just replace their all world running back w/ any other rb is delusional…….not happening. titans better pay this guy, or trade him and get a herschel walker type return!!

  12. Anyone who uses “da” in place of “the” has zero credibility by default.

    It’s a rule. I’m not making it up.

  13. I think we can officially stop trying to discuss paying NCAA atheletes when they get this kind of education for free!
    DOH!!!

  14. He’ll end up getting overpaid.

    They should trade him, running backs are easily replacable and they could probably get a damn good in return for him.

    ——————————————————

    If backs are easily replaceable why would anybody give anybody “damn good” in return?

  15. Johnson could ruin his career with his contract demands.. He’s a little over his head on 30 million guaranteed.. No one will pay that even if the Titans outright cut his ass..

  16. Just sign him already! My fantasy draft is this weekend & I need to know if I should draft him #1

  17. Anyone who uses “da” in place of “the” has zero credibility by default.

    It’s a rule. I’m not making it up.

    LOL

    right now your post has 1 thumbs down. I Wonder who that could be?

  18. bad luck chris johnson got bud adams in this football life. he probably could have rolled a few of the other owners. but i don’t think he can’t beat adams in a game of chicken.
