Two days ago, Titans running back Chris Johnson created a stir on Twitter by suggesting that he doesn’t know whether he’ll be with the team in 2013. Given that $9 million of his $10 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed if he’s on the roster on February 9, speculation renewed that he could be cut.
We later reported that there are no indications the Titans plan to release Johnson, and Johnson has now authored a new tweet that sends the same message.
“Had a great 30min convo with coach munchak and we both look forward to making that next step,” Johnson said.
Per a source with knowledge of the exchange, there was no mention of Johnson’s contract and the conversation is being interpreted as a clear sign that the Titans will keep him.
Which of course means if they cut him we’ll be surprised even though after Manti Te’o we should never be surprised by anything ever again.
