If the Titans don’t cut running back Chris Johnson by February 9, $9 million of his $10 million base salary in 2013 will become fully guaranteed.
Despite multiple reports that the Titans won’t cut Johnson, it appears that Johnson has yet to receive any guarantees about whether he’ll receive his guaranteed money.
“Everyone who is worried bout if I’m gon be a Titan or not next year just understand its all in god hands whatever he won’t I’m ok with it,” Johnson said earlier tonight via Twitter.
Sure, the Titans could allow the deadline to pass and then try to trade Johnson. But at least Johnson will know that he’s getting $10 million if he’ still a Titan on Sunday.
Either way, it sounds like Johnson won’t know the final answer much sooner than the rest of us.
