By not reporting to training camp today, Titans holdout RB Chris Johnson surrendered getting an accrued season toward free agency.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict he's traded in the next 2-3 weeks.

Give him up? Hardly. I'm not talking about cutting him or trading him for a 6th or 7th rounder. A few different sites are reporting possible trade scenarios for top level compensation and it seems to make sense.

They're rebuilding. Why waste the $30 mil guaranteed he's reportedly demanding if they won't be in any position to take advantage of it before he declines? Get the 2 first or second round picks/and or players at positions of need and let someone else show him the money.

Makes sense....just seems he has a lot left in the tank and good RB's are hard to find!

Ochocinco's too cheap to rent his own place, and big money returns at bargain price.

Would you really want this guy to live with you?

I was a little surprised Den didn't have some interest in Warren. He's not much but he can eat up space.

That ship has sailed. Denver has enough retreads and 1 st rd xp that failed to reach draft potential.

Me to but we keep 2 and I also have Charles. He will play though why would titans give Hasselbach 9 million and tell Johnson to to go **** off? It will end up like Revis last yr IMO. He will sign week before the season to some sort of increase in pay with FA given to him early, or he will get his long term deal. No way a player that good sits the yr IMO.

We are screwed fantasy if he does though.

If he was available in a trade Broncos should get on the ****ing phone.

not enough time to gel. They will do well, but I would put my money on a team like the Steelers, Ravens, Jets or Pats. I think the Packers and Bears will give Philly all they can handle as well.

The Bears strike me as a team that caught a lot of breaks to help create their W-L record last year.

Calvin Johnson's non-TD catch week 1 spotted them their first win and they continued to get more lucky breaks as the season went on. How many times did Forte catch a 5 yard screen pass and turn it into a 60 yard run? Can't really rely on that. Urlacher actually played all last season. First time he's done that in a while. Tons of questions on a roster with no significant improvements in this off-season. The Lions might be a more dangerous team than the Bears this year if Stafford stays healthy.

Keep in mind the reporting date was of no significance to Chris Johnson. He doesn't get FA after this year anyways so unless he was holding out for a week just to report and then do it again next year, it was entirely expected.

That does mean he is more committed to his holdout than a player that just has one year left on his contract though. For a one year guy, the team can make a "we wont franchise you" concession and the guy will sometimes cave. Here? They wont franchise him 'cause he has another year after this one. I also think he knows he wont have another season like his 2k year so he wants the big bucks before anyone starts asking if he's washed up, if it was his Oline, etc.

Also, 09 was the only time Urlacher missed a single game in the past 6 years. So, no, it's not "the first time he's done that in a while".

No significant improvements? They quietly had a fantastic draft and FA period... I don't see how you can even say this either...
well he did have a 90 yarder and a 30 yarder in one game to complete an 11 point comeback.

but indeed...only one over 60 yards

The Chicago Sun Times suggests that rookie UDFA Dane Sanzenbacher is already "closing the gap" on Earl Bennett to be the Bears' slot receiver.

I knew he would work his way onto a team and impress them.

Glad to see the Bears are recognizing his talent.

Getting rid of his boyfriend and safety blanket Olsen will hurt though.

He had 41 catches on a team where the leading receivers had 51 each and tied for the team lead in Rec TD. That's not exactly an afterthought

Nice catch vs Seattle though.
His production was certainly down (the Martz factor), but It feels like whenever they really needed a play Olsen was there.
