    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.

    So he can still play this season, but now he won't get a year closer to free agency? This new CBA kicks ass!

    Meh he'll eventually get his sick contract and that lost year will be a distant thought.

    He probably doesn't want to be a Titan anymore.

    If I were them, I would trade him anyway. RB has a short shelf life, and they are not gonna be good anytime soon. They could get a decent haul for him.

    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.

    Why wouldn't you pay the only player on your roster worth a damn?

    How do we know they haven't offered a really good deal and he is demanding an unreasonable amount?

    I thought the same thing until I remembered who we were talking about. Ann Sullivan Macy (aka The Mircale Worker) has been gone for decades now. :D
