Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson doesn’t think of himself as a running back. “I’m an offensive player“, Johnson told ESPN Monday. Johnson said that he wants 30-40 million guaranteed from the Titans and said that the Titans have offered nothing yet. Johnson became the 6th back in history to rush for 2,000 yards last year but no player has ever repeated that accomplishment.
This situation is not looking good for the back scheduled to make 550,000.00 in 2010. With the problems surrounding Titans QB Vince Young, and the contract dispute Johnson has could spell for a long season for the Titans. Even the coaching staff is now concerned with Johnson missing so much time away from camp.
