Titans RB Chris Johnson: 'I Can't Play For $550,000'

Chris Johnson made over $4 million in bonuses the first two years in his career.

In 2010, he's scheduled to make $550,000 and that's just not going to work, he says.

“I can’t play for $550,000,’’ Johnson said. “The money that I am playing for, I am getting paid less than the starting 11 (on offense) and I’m one of the lowest paid starting running backs in the league.’’

Johnson has recently taken to Twitter to complain about his situation as well. The more he keeps talking, I think the less likely the Titans will want to do a deal.
