By not reporting to training camp today, Titans holdout RB Chris Johnson surrendered getting an accrued season toward free agency.

What a numb nuts. No way to win for holdouts anymore.

I don't understand.

Even though he'll have played four years at the end of this season, they'll treat him as if he's only played 3?


Even if he shows up & plays from day 1 of the regular season?

Why would the players agree to that?

Because holdouts are stupid and 99.9% of NFL players don't hold out. He's still on his rookie deal, he needs to play it out and then hit free agency or get an extension.

That's actually been a part of the CBA for several years now. Although, I think it was later in the previous CBA, I could be wrong about that.

If that is the case I think Titan brass is acting in an understandable way. IIRC he is holding out on a contract he renegotiated last year (!). I mean, enough CJ, play out the freaking thing and do what you have to do when the contract is really up.

A player can ask the team to pay him more money at anytime. CJ has to honor the contract as much as the teams honor the contracts. Zilch. CJ has the leverage. He IS their team. And he is young. This tactic doesnt work if you are old and a backup. If the Titans want any chance of winning games this year then they will have to sign CJ to more money.

Players have to strike while the iron is hot. They cant wait until they are playing well and their contract is up, because that rarely happens.

Tuesday is a key date in the NFL for contract holdouts, but it won’t speed up running back Chris Johnson’s return to the Titans. He remains in Orlando working out, and indications are he still has no plans to report to training camp any time soon.

His holdout reached 11 days on Monday.

“Being he is our best player and we are getting close to the season, you try not to think about it,” safety Chris Hope said. “He is an important piece to our locomotive. But I support him and understand his point. No one blames him.”

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson on Monday reported to his team a day before Tuesday’s deadline for earning a fourth year of service toward free agency. That date doesn’t mean anything to Johnson since he still has two years left on his contract. So he has no incentive to get a fourth year of service for free agency since his contract would still have a year remaining.
Under the new CBA, teams have had the option of fining holdouts $30,000 per day since the club’s official reporting day for training camp. But Reinfeldt was not definitive on whether the Titans have been fining Johnson and or Cortland Finnegan.

Let's list all the things that have gone wrong with them.

1. Vince Young drama, ending in VY getting released from the team.

2. Jeff Fisher has a squabble with Bud Adams. Fisher is gone.

3. First-year head coach.

4. Their best WR (Britt) is a monthly star on the TV show Cops.

5. Their new starting QB is a guy who couldn't hang with Seattle.

6. The leprechaun has left the building, taking his Lucky Charms with him.

7. Chris Johnson twitched his way out of camp, too.

8. Their defense is a shell of its former self.

Could end up being THE worst team in the NFL this year, especially if they do not have Finnegan and Chris Johnson. The team chemistry has to feel awkward right now.

Yep, I like their chances at getting Luck with the 1st pick in the draft next year. I think I'm the only one on this board who picked them to do so. The Titans will be 2 easy wins for the Texans this year, which is good news for us. However, if they get Luck, then we will have the next Peyton Manning in our division, which could begin the next decade of Texans suffering...

I gotta' go with GP on this one. The Titans are imploding. Slug Adams is reaping what he sowed, and I hope Titans fans choke on that chicken bone of losing.

Anything is possible, but what is probable is that a first year head coach is taking over a very troubled franchise and they will continue to nosedive. Star players are unhappy, and with the way Slug operates, he's not going to get pushed around for more money. That stubborn old fool is that team's own worst enemy, and that's fine with me.

The Texans had better sweep them this year. And not just sweep, but mop them up. No way should a team under a 6th year head coach lose to a team in this state of disarray.

I usually believe in a player honoring his full contract and then asking for a new one but being that most football players have short career especially short for a running back then CJ should get the most money he can while he plays. That being said, he should go to camp and discuss it like a man and maybe he has been offered a new deal but his overall ego is just getting the best of him.

And guess what? Those teams arent stupid enough to pay him that idiotic kind of money. Name me one RB in any of those 3 cities that made a fortune outside Bush's rookie bonus.

Chris Johnson’s contract situation is not getting better (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Chris-Johnson-8217-s-contract-situation-is-not-?urn=nfl-wp5553)


For those of you who would like to see Chris Johnson run the football on an NFL field this year, I'm afraid things aren't looking good.
Larry Fitzgerald's new deal likely squashed any notion Johnson had of taking a more modest contract. The Titans general manager says there's no point in even making Johnson an offer. And the owner of the franchise says that life's too short to deal with Johnson "with the way he's acting."
But other than that, I think things are going really well.
It's officially time to start pushing Johnson down your fantasy draft boards. The Titans season starts in 20 days, and they're moving further and further apart. Anyone have any reason to believe that things between Johnson and the team will become less frosty in the next couple of weeks?
Here's more from Titans owner Bud Adams (via TitanInsider):
"I'm not gonna make any offer with the way he's acting. Life's too short," Adams said.

:worthless: Oh Wait!!! wrong emoticon.

To be fair, Chris Johnson is one of the lowest paid running backs in the league, definitely near the bottom in terms of starting RBs. They are EXTREMELY lowballing him if htey want him to continue on his current contract.

And with the shelf life of RBs, I can't say I blame Johnson. He needs to get his money while the getting is good. Remember Dominick Davis? He was earning more money than CJ is earning now. And his career was tragically cut short by injury.

I agree he needs to hold out as long as necessary. I'm thinking late December would be a good time for both sides to reach an agreement.

I think he isn't worried about his accrued season, because he knows he is signing with the team and is just skipping camp. It's like when Mike Rozier held out. A few extra weeks of not running or getting hit, smoking 5 packs a day (substitute your substance of choice for CJ) were worth it to him. He's getting paid and everyone knows it.

I'm really not sure how much Mike Rozier has to do with anything, but I had to get that out of my system. Flushing the pipes or something.

I had ankle surgery right next to Rozier while he was getting his done. We were drugged up at the same time and all I remember was laughing at him. I guess he was funny.

Chris Johnson agrees to terms on $53.5 million contract
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 1, 2011, 1:03 PM EDT
Chris Johnson AP

Chris Johnson’s holdout ended in the most predictable way possible. He’s back in the fold 10 days before the regular season starts. Right on schedule.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean first reported and PFT’s Mike Florio can confirm that Johnson agreed to a four-year,$53.5 million contract extension. $30 million is guaranteed. Some of the guaranteed money is for injury, and some for skill. $53.5 million is the new money. Part of the guarantee tranfers to injury on the first day of a given league year.

In the end, Johnson essentially got the guaranteed money and per-year dollars he was looking for. The Titans didn’t have to pay him Larry Fitzgerald money or completely break the running back mold.

This should give Johnson enough time to be ready for Week One. It should also give Adrian Peterson a starting point for negotiations of his next contract.

30 Mill guaranteed over 6 years total - sounds like 5 mill a year

or 30 mill over the 4 years of the extention - is 7.5 mill a year

far cry from the 12 mill he wanted

Chris Johnson will earn $31 million over the next three years under his new contract.
For comparison's sake, DeAngelo Williams will make $30 million in the first years of his deal. Originally due to collect less than a $1 million this year, Johnson will take home $13 million, followed by $8 million in 2012 and $10 million in 2013. All but $1 million is guaranteed. Don't look for him to be uniform Thursday night. CJ2K is not playing in New Orleans for the preseason finale

I don't care how they break it down with what paid out in what year.

I am just looking at it as 30 mill guaranteed - and it was 4 years added to the end of the 2 years he has left


to me that is 30 mill over 6 years - 5 mill a year avg

You are ignoring base salary. He will be getting paid roughly 13 million a year.

And this is why I don't financially support the NFL by buying tickets or going to the games. They are lucky I actually bought a baseball cap once.

Players make to much, owners squeeze the ticket buyers for it, and the TV announcers are about as intelligent as a retarded lizard.

And channel 13 still has a contract for broadcasting the preseason Texans games.

Plus, Chris Johnson had one of the worst games of his career in what has already been a hugely disappointing season. He followed up a 130-yard effort against Carolina with a season-low 13 yards on 12 carries, his longest gain going for only 6 yards.

“You go back to the last game and I got 130 and everything was good,” Johnson said. “You come back to this game and nothing is working. It goes back to the offense not executing, not being consistent.”

I am about as neutral as it gets on CJ, and I will tell you, that yesterday alone? every time he got the ball there were Falcon defenders in the backfield literally off the snap. The Titans' offensive line, long a major strength, is now a liability.

Apparently he showed up out of shape.

It is unlikely that Titans RB Chris Johnson won't improve upon his lackluster 2011 campaign, the way we hear it. The biggest thing going for Johnson will be a full offseason working with the team. A team source recently indicated that Johnson's conditioning played as large of a role in his poor performance last season as anything. Although the team's blocking wasn't great and other factors contributed, we hear he simply was out of shape until the second half, when he strung a few solid games together, albeit against poor defenses.

Not buying that excuse. He ended the season with four games in which his high water mark was 61 yards against a coasting Texans. He wasn't finding his stride to end the season as he got in shape.

I think he doesn't care as much. He was to dominant to have lost that much. He clearly wasn't running with the same type of passion and intensity.

He'll have an occasionally great game, but 80% of the time he's going to have bad stats and look very ordinary.

The Titans coach, can't remember which one (maybe the RB coach) the last week or two was saying how 'CJ has that look in his eye, he's back..' blah blah blah. I was like, 'whatever.' Look at him today: FOUR YARDS. Pathetic.
