Chris Johnson and the Titans reportedly agreed on the terms of a restructured contract that will pay him more money in 2010 but not add more years to the contract.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal isn't quite done but will be soon.
Both sides are reviewing the contract, which could be signed within the next 48 hours. Some of his maximum $2.5 million escalator will be moved forward, and no new years will be added to the deal, the source said.
"We're still talking through some issues," a source familiar with the process said Monday. "It's going to get done, but it's not done yet."
Johnson previously said he couldn't play for $550,000
