Do you think CJ will play opening day?

By Paul Kuharsky


Andrew Brandt seems to nail the big Chris Johnson question in this video. The Titans are willing to make Johnson the highest-paid running back in the NFL. By how much?

Larry Fitzgerald zoomed to the head of the line in receiver pay by a big margin, and Johnson is looking for the same sort of thing at running back.

"It’s going to calm down,” Brandt says. “It’s going to get done.”

He predicts a Labor Day deal.

How about you? Hit this poll to share if you think Johnson will be in the lineup Sept. 11 in Jacksonville or not.
