Titans Owner Bud Adams Backs GM On Chris Johnson Contract Negotiation

Two weeks ago, Tennessee Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt declared his intention to make disgruntled RB Chris Johnson the NFL's highest-paid back. Two weeks later, Johnson has yet to see a contract offer at all.

While the team's star continues to hold out of camp, many have criticized the way Reinfeldt has handled the negotiations. However, the GM does have one person in his corner...Titans owner Bud Adams.

"...I'm leaving that up to Mike Reinfeldt to work that out," Adams said. "(Johnson) has got two years on his contract right now. Now, he wants more money, I guess, but he can be fined ($30,000 per day) for not reporting. You add all that up and it's a pretty good bit."

"I'm just hoping he'll come on in and start playing for us. But I don't know, it doesn't look it. I'm not interfering with them," Adams said. "They've got it worked out on the basis that they want to work it out. I'm behind them all the way. They're (Johnson's side) not getting any results out of his not showing up, though."

Johnson has missed 23 days of camp so far and the window is closing on his ability to be ready by the time the season starts.
