St. Louis Rams v Tennessee Titans Getty Images

Titans running back Chris Johnson went to Nashville, with his agent, to meet with Titans G.M. Mike Reinfeldt.

The meeting has ended, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

No news is bad news for Titans fans.  A deal has not yet been reached.  Look for the next comments, if any, to come from G.M. Mike Reinfeldt.

    Clearly he needs to show up in camp and be a distraction to the team.

    Titans did not play this hand very well.

    Of all positions…..RB has the shortest shelf life. This guy is the best at his position.

    Figure it out.

    I believe they are looking for a translator so CJ can can express his wishes on the contract.

  3. jw731 says: Aug 24, 2011 2:49 PM

    They gave him a Rosetta Stone CD….The English version, and hope to hear back from him really really soon….

  4. alaricsrevenge says: Aug 24, 2011 2:49 PM

    About as exciting as a “Kiss the Clan member” booth at the state fair…

  5. mediasloppy says: Aug 24, 2011 2:50 PM

    Maybe he’s gong to wait out until AP does his deal during the season or next year. I’m seriously sick of this guy.

  6. sinister23 says: Aug 24, 2011 2:50 PM

    c’mon titans! PAY THE GUY! Hes the most electrifying and productive back in the NFL.

    Welcome to the Montreal Alouettes. How do you say “bonehead” in French?

  8. nasheagles says: Aug 24, 2011 2:53 PM

    Titans will never attract FA’s- if they negotiate in good faith. He is the only mass produced jersey Titans fans can buy… that should say overpay, not forget you

    I’d love and unedited transcript. Just to see what Chris Johnson says, in his own words.

  10. ncsteeler83 says: Aug 24, 2011 2:56 PM

    Honor thy contract! You signed it…now deal with it!!

  11. porkchopexpress1969 says: Aug 24, 2011 2:57 PM

    Let this dude sit the rest of the year……..

  12. alaricsrevenge says: Aug 24, 2011 2:57 PM

    @jw731

    ..classic..

  13. vbe2 says: Aug 24, 2011 2:57 PM

    Who cares. Let him sit out the whole season. $30k a day is a pretty hefty price to pay for being an idiot.

  14. oldschoolwillie says: Aug 24, 2011 2:59 PM

    It would be nice to know if this dude is going to play. I need to choose if I want to keep the third pick in my draft or move down.

  15. huhfasi says: Aug 24, 2011 3:02 PM

    WHOOOO The only person in my fantasy league that I’m worried about drafted him first round today after the news of them meeting. Wonderful news. WONDERFUL

  16. louforprethident says: Aug 24, 2011 3:03 PM

    Paying him the highest salary for a running back in the league is more than fair.

    I say let him sit. There’s another back waiting in line for a chance to play.

  17. berniemadoffsides says: Aug 24, 2011 3:05 PM

    Well, I thought Lil John was terrific on Celebrity Apprentice – I’m sure he’ll succeed even without football.

  18. alaricsrevenge says: Aug 24, 2011 3:05 PM

    @trollaikman8

    Just smash your fists on the keyboard and fill in with a few spaces here and there and that’s pretty much what you’re gonna get from Mushmouth.

    Well, I agree with most of what you said. Adrian Peterson is better….he’s fast and a BEAST.

  20. FinFan68 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:10 PM

    Most fantasy football fans want him signed. Fans of the actual game realize he is not worth what he thinks he is worth. Better deal–yes; retarded “histry” deal–no.

  21. lildon96 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:12 PM

    They probably ended it because nobody can understand a damn word he says.

  22. twimpus says: Aug 24, 2011 3:12 PM

    if the Browns can make Joe Thomas the highest paid OL by 20% . . .where’s this dude’s $? he scores points

  23. rpiotr01 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:12 PM

    5 years, $67 mil contract,$15 mil signing bonus. $11 mil a year for the first two years, $15 mil for the next three dummy years to inflate his ego. He’ll be burnt out after two years anyway, just cut him. He gets $37 mil guaranteed over life of the deal. I think that’s fair for the best RB in the game, considering the lack of a shelf life.

    Throw in a few extra pairs of gold chompers if he wants to play hardball.

  24. green18blue52 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:16 PM

    man at this rate, pretty soon, he is gonna have to start pawning his gold teeth one by one

  25. mymanmccoy says: Aug 24, 2011 3:16 PM

    He had to leave the mtng. early to get his gode teef fixed!

  26. bearsandjazz says: Aug 24, 2011 3:17 PM

    The problem I see is didn’t he sign an extension last year. Is he going to do this every year or two.

  27. jacunn2000 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:17 PM

    Well, I guess you showed them, didn’t you Chris??

  28. green18blue52 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:18 PM

    oldschoolwillie

    take Ray Rice at 3 and laugh all the way to the bank

  29. ericbruning says: Aug 24, 2011 3:18 PM

    Another thing I really care about….. seeing someone who is all set to make millions upon millions argue and pout about whether it will be 9 or 10 or 11 million a year…. phuuuuulease….

  30. seabreezes51 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:19 PM

    He slipped to me in my fantasy draft #5 because he may not start the season……. Hope I didn’t grab some air on this one.

  31. 1mge says: Aug 24, 2011 3:24 PM

    Titans should release (in detail) the offer they made & CJ’s agent should release (in detail) their counter.

    This way we can all see who is being a jack-arse!

  32. goldrush36 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:24 PM

    Trade him for Gore. They will both still be pissed off crybabies on non playoff teams, but at least they’ll get a change of scenery lol

  33. darthhitman says: Aug 24, 2011 3:31 PM

    Titans MNGT: So, even though Adrian Peterson IS a better back than you…and Arian Foster did lead the league in rushing last season, how much do you feel you should make CJ?

    Chris Johnson: jhbdsiufhuisdyvcinsfrhfihjf fiuhweiufyasd kjasdfhiuasdyf kiherfiewuoi wratqeoefk frlmsdfgpoxcikd, feoifjewlk YA DIG?!

    Titans MNGT: What in the blue hell did you just say?

  34. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 24, 2011 3:31 PM

    He’s about to find out how replaceable RBs have become. A team doesn’t need one great back. They only need two or three decent backs.
    Buy him for what he’s worth, sell him for what he thinks he’s worth.

  35. thefiesty1 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:31 PM

    Just pay him! Whoops, I forgot, it’s Bud Adams and the former Oilers.

  36. cballlv11 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:32 PM

    PAY THE MAN!!!!

  37. alaricsrevenge says: Aug 24, 2011 3:34 PM

    Brian Westbrook…still available Titan fans…

  38. dclimey says: Aug 24, 2011 3:37 PM

    I’m genuinely curious to see what people think about this: Say CJ and and management both issue statements today that the parties can’t establish mutually agreeable parameters for a new deal, and there’s no reason to continue negotiating at this point. Would the Titans ever consider trading him if they really think he’ll continue to sit out until he gets the deal he wants?

    Assuming this was even a remote possibility, the Patriots have two first round picks and two second round picks in 2012, and they have a pretty deep stable of RBs to package with draft picks. How absurd would that offense be if there was actually a deal to be made?

  39. samb27 says: Aug 24, 2011 3:46 PM

    Damn CJ, if you do get this contract, you better run atleast 3000 every year, all of this drama, play ball

  40. nolahxc says: Aug 24, 2011 3:48 PM

    “Hey Jenn. This is Chris. Had a meeting today…………. that ended.”

    What should I do? Should I admit I made mistakes?

  41. tominma says: Aug 24, 2011 3:51 PM

    I think he should be rewarded for outplaying his contract. I also think he’s being a bit too greedy!

  42. kegpack says: Aug 24, 2011 3:53 PM

    Sources close to the situation claim the meeting was adjourned until Johnson can spell his own name…

    This could be awhile.

  43. mmmpieyummy says: Aug 24, 2011 3:53 PM

    Keep playing hard ball Adams…let this POS sit and fine his butt 30K a day.

    Or as CJ would say “Sdjrth eierhs ldkfjht pspdi kjksj jtjepp”.

  44. berniemadoffsides says: Aug 24, 2011 3:56 PM

    Whatever he gets, AP deserves more. He didn’t hold out and he plays each down as if it were his last. You have to respect the guy for that. If any RB in the league deserves a huge payday, it’s AP.

    CJ’s a rare talent with disgusting speed, but AP is by far the most complete back in the league.

    New England would never make this deal. WHY would they??? Their offense is awesome and they also covet draft picks.

  46. vikescry1 says: Aug 24, 2011 4:02 PM

    come on titan’s pay the man already your going to screw my fantasy team!!!

  47. vikescry1 says: Aug 24, 2011 4:03 PM

    come on cj get to camp your going to screw my fantasy team!!!! ( just wanted to get to both sides!!!!)

  48. feldman9000 says: Aug 24, 2011 4:06 PM

    Could you imagine Bud Adams trying to talk to this guy?

    Here’s the break down. They’re 3-13 this year with or without him.

    I’ve never had people persuade me to keep a player in my keeper league. Droppin this trash like hot cakes because he didn’t do that great last year besides beating the Raiders.

  49. stinkfingers says: Aug 24, 2011 4:09 PM

    If you are going to call them racists, at least do it right.

    Its KLAN… With a K…

    Its not the KKC.

  50. drshakedown74 says: Aug 24, 2011 4:10 PM

    DeSean showed up and is playing, why not CJ?

  51. innerlign says: Aug 24, 2011 4:16 PM

    They really have nobody outside of Johnson that is a playmaker. You have no choice but to pay him Tenn! Get over your ego and shell out the greenbacks.

  52. eatlessveggies says: Aug 24, 2011 4:19 PM

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Chris Johnson holding out, even if he is still under his current contract. Anything is negotiable if you have two parties that are willing to work together. We renegotiate contracts after we signed them all of the time, ie. mortages, leases, offers of employment, etc.

  53. meglasdad says: Aug 24, 2011 4:21 PM

    Hey Chris, two words ( thats more than one but less than three) : Ryan Grant.

    —————————–

    Ever think that maybe AP isn’t holding out because he makes a little more than 500k per season while his franchise runs him into the ground? CJ has made pennies by superstar NFL player standards. He’s doing what’s right for him. Props to the kid for standing up for himself and doing what he can to get his…He’s already done enough on the field to get it done. Easy to say “honor your contract” and all that BS when you don’t have millions upon millions of future earnings at risk, and at any time the organization can decide that they no longer want to “honor the contract”…Stay strong CJ. Get what you’re worth, and let the haters hate…

  55. jfolland says: Aug 24, 2011 4:25 PM

    AP – $40.5 million rookie deal (6 years)
    CJ – $12 million rookie deal (5 years)

    Anyone who says AP deserves to get paid before CJ is crazy..Both have outperformed their original deals, but AP already makes more than twice what CJ does…

  56. alaricsrevenge says: Aug 24, 2011 4:42 PM

    I’m sorry sticky, but I wasn’t really going for that level. But since you’re nice enough to clear that up for me…

  57. scudbot says: Aug 24, 2011 5:21 PM

    Vince Young is praying that CJ gets traded to Philly for three of four of the home grown players that Philly’s lame coaches couldn’t develop. He’s the only chance Vince Young has to win games there and they’re on the same wavelength.

    Maybe his agent should have got him a better rookie contract? Maybe a better education so he could understand his first contract? AP is the first player off the board in fantacy football. Why? Because he is the best in the leauge hands down.
