Chris Johnson Won’t Take a Pay Cut From Titans, Says He’ll Find Work Quickly

The marriage between Chris Johnson and the Tennessee Titans is likely to come to an end in a couple of weeks.

While addressing the media and Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Johnson made it clear that he had no intentions of taking a discount deal to stay with the Titans.

–He still feels like he’s one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL.

–He’d like to return to the Titans next season, and he’s trying to ignore talk that suggests they could move on without him.

–He won’t take a pay cut in order to return to the Titans.

The sixth-year pro has 950 yards heading into Sunday’s season finale against the Texans and is scheduled to make $8 million next season.

Following a year when he made $10 million, the Titans are expected to look closely at whether he’s worth the investment.

Johnson then addressed the situation in his own words.

I know I am way better than trying to get 1,000 yards in the last game,’’ he said. “But looking at the situation, it is a whole bunch of things that go into it. So I don’t get too down on myself. I know when I get the ball and put in the right situation I can still do the same things.

Johnson is right, he might not make $10 million a season, but he will find a job quickly.
