Here's the statement the Titans released from GM Mike Reinfeldt after today's meeting with Chris Johnson:
“We had a meeting today with myself, Vin Marino (Titans VP Football Administration), Chris Johnson and Joel Segal. It was important for us to have a face-to-face meeting so that everyone could have a voice and understand the perspective of the other side. I’m not sure there was any progress made, but I do think it was beneficial to meet. We were able to discuss several different elements of a potential contract, but there was no agreement on those topics. I do expect to have another conversation with Joel in the next day or so to discuss things further.”
Later, after practice, Mike Munchak told Nashville reporters he'd yet to speak to Reinfeldt and didn't know if he'd speak to Johnson.
But he was encouraged that the meeting took place.
"I think when someone comes into town you are at least heading in the right direction," he said. "What happens when they come in I don’t know, but at least it’s good that Chris did come in and hopefully that’s a good sign. I know he wants to get this thing resolved and know he wants to play this year and I don’t think he wants to take the chance of missing games early so you hope his thinking is that same as ours and not to just be here but help us win the Jacksonville game."
