After more than a month of holding out, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson has accepted a new deal for 5 years and $53.5 million. A new contract had been contingent upon Johnson receiving $30 million in guaranteed coin, and this new deal indeed satisfies his demand. Johnson was set to make just $800,000 this year, after serving as the most prolific RB in the NFL over the past 3 seasons. I’d say that a $12 million raise should satisfy the man who only days ago had a very blunt Twitter message for his critics:

“Can these fake Titan fans STFU on my timeline I don’t have a regular job so don’t compare me to you and I can care less if uthink I’m greedy.”

Aw, he seems sweet. So who is ready to start the pool on when his hamstring snaps?
