Can’t believe that this song was taken serious and was popular at one point. What the hell is the song even about. I wonder if Michael Vick has this on his iPod for when he is working out.
While the Titans publicly stated they are willing to make Johnson the highest-paid running back in the NFL, those close to Johnson believe he should be paid as one of the top playmakers in the league — not just for running backs, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
To date, the Titans have not made any offers to Johnson. Until the Titans can find a way to appease Johnson, the Pro Bowl running back is not expected to report back to the team, which sets up the possibility for a prolonged holdout.
League sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Christ Mortensen that Johnson is seeking a deal that would pay him $39 million over the first three years, a $13 million average, that would place him in that elite status he is seeking beyond the running back market.
General manager Mike Reinfeldt told The Associated Press last week that Johnson’s agent was the first person the team called once the NFL’s lockout was lifted. The Titans had reworked Johnson’s contract a year ago to give him more money in 2010 and promised to talk to him again a year later.
But Johnson told The Tennessean he was surprised to hear that Reinfeldt said that he would make him the highest-paid running back ever. Johnson said neither he nor his agent has received any offer from the Titans.
“Maybe they talked, but I guarantee we never received any offer,” Johnson told The Tennessean.
Johnson said last year that he wanted a new deal with $30 million in guaranteed money. The Titans revised his contract by boosting his 2010 salary by $1.5 million to $2.05 million to convince the running back to report.
Johnson is working off two models, sources told Mortensen, one in the past with LaDainian Tomlinson while trying to project the market for the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson, who is scheduled to become a free agent.
The Chargers in 2004 gave Tomlinson an extension with two years left on his original rookie deal that made him among the top-paid players in the game with an average just above $8 million during the first three years on that contract. Peterson’s salary is $10.2 million this year with free agency status for 2012 and sources told Mortensen that Johnson believes the Vikings running back will get an average in the neighborhood of $13 to $14-million per year in the first seasons of his next deal.
Johnson is heading into his fourth season and due to make $800,000 in base salary. The final two years of his deal can max out at roughly $2.7 million.
Part of the problem is that running backs typically are not paid as well as some of the league’s other top players. While Minnesota’s Peterson is the league’s highest-paid running back, DeAngelo Williams received $21 million guaranteed from the Carolina Panthers to re-sign this offseason.
Johnson has rushed for 4,598 yards and 34 touchdowns during his three seasons. He also has caught 137 passes for 1,008 more yards and four more touchdowns.
His numbers have made him one of the most dangerous players in the game — and Johnson wants to be paid like it.

This article is really starting to make me nervous about whether or not Chris Johnson will really holdout this year. It looks as though he is going to probably holdout because he is not getting the money he wants. If the reports are true the Titans made a deal with CJ that would make him the highest paid running back in the league which I think is fair but is not enough for CJ28. He wants to be the highest paid player in the league which I don’t think he should be (even as a huge fan) with a huge amount of guaranteed money. I think he should be promised a large amount of guaranteed money because of the short, average career life of running backs in the NFL. I guess the one good thing to take from this is that he is holding out and I have a fantasy draft Friday so hopefully he is still holding out by then so I can scoop him up 6th overall in a keeper league, although those odds don’t look good at all.
Here at PDC we are adding a new feature to our blog, the Friday Failure. There is nothing better than watching other people try something and just fail miserably. We would like for followers to send us photos or videos of people we may know failing at something.
Now this is a very serious story and I hope they find this girl unharmed very soon. However, the reason I am posting this is because her brother looks and talks just like McLovin from the movie Superbad. Play Dough just helping out by getting the word out there. Am I a bad person for posting this?
This movie is to a T about our great friend Josh DeSieno. The dog, the outfits, the trampoline, and most of all the dumb ass shit he says and does. It’s Friday so enjoy the weekend and try to get some footage of Dino doing some ridiculous shit and send it to us so we can prove to our followers that don’t know him that this is a movie based on him. If you are looking for him, chances are he will be dancing/sweating his ass off at the cellar. Love ya buddy (no worries about this either because we don’t have many followers because people suck)
