Titans coach Mike Munchak has a significant role in mind for newly signed running back Shonn Greene.
Chris Johnson is not happy about that.
“I have never been a big fan of the two-back system, so I don’t know how we plan on using him,” Johnson told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “I’m not afraid of competition, but I was thinking we’d maybe get a draft pick for the other back. And you don’t give a guy that kind of money to be just a goal-line guy and in tough-yardage situations. So we’ll see what happens.”
Johnson said he can live with Greene in the running back room, but he doesn’t want to give up too many carries to the new arrival.
“I’ll just roll with it. Of course I don’t want to carry the ball 30 or 40 times a game,” Johnson said. “And I don’t mind a guy getting a carry or two. But if I am the main guy and it is supposed to be my team . . . it shouldn’t be an issue.”
But it may become an issue the first time Greene gets carries that Johnson thinks should have been his.
