Holding out has just proven to have been the best bet for star running back Chris Johnson’s bank account. The Tennessee Titans played fair after the three-time Pro Bowler refused to report to training camp without a new deal, determined to keep him in their uniform. Now both parties have reached a contract extension agreement worth a reported $53.5 million with $30 million of that guaranteed. The deal will keep Johnson in Nashville up until 2016, plenty of time for them to attempt another run at the Super Bowl.
That is unless Johnson feels his rap career is more important. Highly unlikely, however.
