The general manager for Tennessee Mike Reinfeldt had said on Wednesday that his meeting with Chris Johnson was very beneficial and even though there was no deal reached. Reinfeldt now expects to speak with the player’s agent in the next few days or so. Las Vegas odds

In a statement released by the team Reinfeldt said  “It was important for us to have a face-to-face meeting so that everyone could have a voice and understand the perspective of the other side,” “I’m not sure there was any progress made, but I do think it was beneficial to meet. We were able to discuss several different elements of a potential contract, but there was no agreement on those topics.”

Neither Johnson or his agent Joel Segal had immediately responded to messages sent by the media. When he arrived on Tuesday night in Nashville Johnson had told Tennessean that he was not sure if the meeting would eventually result in becoming a new deal. Sports scores

Johnson speaking to the newspaper said “I want to be here. We’ll see,”

While the Titans have said publicly that they are willing to make Johnson their running back the highest played player in that position the people close to the player are saying that he need to be paid as one of the best playmakers and not just be paid as a running back. Baseball scores

Sources at the league have told ESPN that Johnson is seeking a deal which could eventually pay him $39 million during the first three years. This is a $13 million average which would then place him on the status of elite and something which allows him to reach beyond the running back market.

When the newspaper asked Johnson if the team agreed to his salary demands he said “I have no answers today. I’ll answer that tomorrow,”

Right now Johnson is scheduled to earn $1.065 million for 2011 after Tennessee takes the opportunity to revise his contract a year after to get more money to the player. His original contract was for $12 million. But the numbers have risen even higher since then. The Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald had agreed to an eight year deal well worth over $120 million on Saturday which raises the stakes for Johnson as he congratulated him via his Twitter post.
