Titans running back Chris Johnson told The Tennesseean he has not heard from the Titans about his $10 million dollar contract. Five days after the Super Bowl, nine million of Johnsons contract becomes guaranteed.
Everybody talks about it, but I havent heard from them, not anything, he said. So I dont know.
The Titans are expected to activate the guarantee, but they declined comment on Friday.
Johnson, who signed a $53.5 million extension in 2011, is under contract through 2016. When asked if he wanted to remain with the Titans, Johnson paused.
If they are making the right steps toward getting better I want to be back, he said. I really think they want to get better. They cant be satisfied with winning eight games and watching the playoffs at home. And just being around coach (Mike) Munchak, I know he wants to win.
