The stalemate concerning the Tennessee Titans and their contract with Chris Johnson is going to hold out as there are no signs of things coming to a close any time soon. The Titans have publically stated that they are willing to put Johnson in the highest paying running back in the NFL people who are close to Johnson said that he should be paid as being one of the best playmakers in the NFL and not just a running back.

The Titans have yet to make any fresh offers to the running back. Now until the Titans can find some way of appeasing the running back . he is not expected to get back to the team which now sets up a possibility for a very long hold out. According to League sources Johnson is currently seeking a deal which would in theory pay him around $39 million over a three year period which is $13 million on average which would put him in the ranks of elite players.

According to the General manager Mike Reinfeldt who was speaking to the Associated Press just last week he said that it was Johnson’s agent who was first called by the team once the lockout was officially lifted by the NFL. The Titans worked on reworking his contract a year ago which will give him more money in 2010 as promised and to talk with him again after a year. But Johnson had told Tennessee that he was surprised to hear that Reinfeldt that he would be made the highest paying running back ever. But this is an offer that neither Johnson or his agent claim they got. Las Vegas odds

Johnson said “Maybe they talked, but I guarantee we never received any offer,”

Johnson had said just last year that he wanted a brand new deal with a $30 million guarantee. The Titans then worked on revising his contract and boosted his salary from $1.5 million to $2.05 million in order to get him back.

The biggest problem is that a running back is not paid as well on average as some other top players in th league. While the highest paid running back currently is Peterson of Minnesota, DeAngelo Williams also got $21 million guaranteed from the Carolina Panthers in order to re-sign for the offseason.
