Titans running back Chris Johnson stirred up some intrigue on Tuesday by suggesting on Twitter that he doesn’t know whether the team will keep him beyond February 9, which would transform $9 million of his $10 million base salary into a fully guaranteed payment.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Titans have done nothing to suggest that Johnson will be released.
The best evidence? The Titans have not even approached Johnson about a potential pay cut, which presumably would happen before the Titans simply cut him loose.
So if it happens, it will be a shock to everyone. Including Johnson, despite the dramatic Twitter message from Tuesday night.
