Chris Johnson Holdout Could End This Weekend, According To Report

Michael Lombardi went on television and reported that the Tennessee Titans are ready to pay Chris Johnson, and that the All-Pro's holdout could end as soon as this weekend, according to Rotoworld. The details:

Lombardi characterized the Titans' approach as "very aggressive" because they want to get a deal done this week ... According to Lombardi, there hasn't been any hostility, "they've opened up the bank vault," and "it looks like they're going to pay him." Lombardi believes it's "not too optimistic" to expect a new deal this weekend.     

Titans fans and fantasy football owners with mid-to-late first round picks haven't heard better news in a long time. Here's what SB Nation's Titans blog, Music City Miracles, said in their post on the subject:

If the Titans really have decided to dig deep and get CJ his money, I have enough faith in Reinfeldt to believe he'll structure it in a smart way that gives the team a way out in a few years. 

Coupled with the return of Kenny Britt to practice, this offense might finally look NFL quality Week 1. 

Let's hope this all gets sorted out soon. No one wins when one of the league's three most exciting players doesn't get on the field because of a contract dispute.
