Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson continues his holdout after making no progress on his contract talks during a meeting with General Manager Mike Reinfeldt.
“I feel like I came in and they gave me their points and we gave them our points and we are not seeing eye-to-eye right now,” Johnson said per the Tennessean’s Jim Wyatt .
“Basically my plan is to continue to handle my part and let (agent Joel Segal) handle his part,’’ Johnson said. “All I can do is continue to work out and stay in shape. From them seeing me yesterday, (Reinfeldt) knows I am in great shape, and he said ‘you’re looking good’ and things like that. All I can do right now is keep working out and keep waiting.’’
The Titans said they are willing to make him the league’s highest-paid running back at around $10 million per year, but Johnson wants a contract somewhere in the $13.5 million range. It looks like no end is in sight for this holdout and the Titans need to now be worried that they will not have their star running back for the beginning of the season.
