I know Chris Johnson has 2 years left on his deal, but I can see why he wants to get paid.
Another 2 years of 300+ carries and he will have 1500-1700 carries and another 200-250 touches via receptions.
That is close to 2000 touches.
Most running backs have a short shelf life....he wants to get paid before he gets put through the grinder....and the Titans won't have any problem putting him through the grinder with the current 2 year deal.
On the flip side, I can see where the Titans are coming from.
Almost every time a back gets PAID it rarely works out....RB is a tough position to pay franchise money to because of their short shelf life.
I hope they can find a happy medium, as I enjoy watching him tote the rock.
