Thursday, Tennessee Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt declared his intention to make disgruntled RB Chris Johnson the NFL's highest-paid back. Tremendous! This will smooth everything over, and one of the league's most-exciting players will be back to work shortly.
Johnson seems confused, however, saying Reinfeldt hasn't offered him a contract, according to Jim Wyatt. He says he's surprised to learn he'll soon be paid so well, and wondered whether the Titans have merely discussed such a contract offer among themselves. He added he's in fine shape and ready to get to work, once financials are in order.
It seems we have a failure to communicate here. Now that the Titans have made public their desire to compensate Johnson as well as he could be, you'd have to think it's only a matter of time before they actually do make an offer.
