Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans Will Meet Over Contract

Chris Johnson will reportedly meet with the Tennessee Titans in Nashville to negotiate terms of a new contract. Johnson has been holding out of training camp, seeking a richer deal. Titans' owner Bud Adams has been critical of Johnson's holdout.

"I'm not gonna make any offer with the way he's acting," Adams said recently. "Life's too short. These agents sometimes get carried away and don't really tell the player what their position is. Players usually leave it up to them to get it done, but sometimes they make mistakes with what they tell them.     

The team has said that they would be willing to make Johnson the highest paid running back in the league. It is possible that Johnson believes he should be one of the highest paid offensive players in the league, not just among his position group. The Titans are allowed to fine Johnson $30,000 for each missed day of training camp.
