RTC: CJ wishes Titans talked pay reduction
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...
Chris Johnson is upbeat about his fresh start with the Jets. “I have great memories of playing with the Titans,” he told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "I love my people in Tennessee. It was a great run. But sometimes people have to move on. I was upset about it at first, how things played out, but now I have a fresh start, and I am excited.”
To which I say: His stance on the possibility of taking a pay cut with the Titans is a baffler. He was adamant to Wyatt, twice, that he wouldn’t take less money but is seemingly offended they didn’t offer him one.
The Jets were the last team to see Johnson’s big-play abilities firsthand, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.
Anthony Barr is the pick for Pete Prisco of CBS Sports in his newest mock draft. Prisco still thinks the Titans need an edge rusher. As do I.
