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.

  1. 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.

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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

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

    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.

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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….

  13. 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!

  14. 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

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

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

  19. 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.

  21. 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.

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

    Its KLAN… With a K…

    Its not the KKC.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

    —————————–

    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…

  26. 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…

  27. 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.
