Tennessee Titans Daily Links: Commentators Who Color With Crayons Suggest We Cut Chris Johnson

USA TODAY Sports

All the Titans news that's fit to link.

(Ed Note: I'll be at the MNF game tonight to watch Locker slice and dice the Jets, so if you're coming as well tweet me at @AugustWest_MCM and we'll try to meet up!)

Tennessee_titans_30x21 By passing the 1,000 yard mark last week, Chris Johnson became just the eight player in NFL history to rush for over 1,000 yards in the first five years of his NFL career. So of course...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 ... idiots across the league are beginning to pipe up about CJ's contract, contending that we should cut one of the league's most productive running backs simply because he's probably overpaid by a few million. This view is absolutely absurd considering that we have ample salary cap room, we have absolutely nothing behind him at the RB position (meaning we'd have to shell out good money or a high draft pick to get an almost certainly inferior player), the perception that CJ is a cancer is vastly overblown and the last thing this team needs is to jettison legitimate play makers. Dumping Chris Johnson for nothing, or a mediocre draft pick, would quickly surpass Michael Griffin's and Eugene Amano's lucrative contract extensions, and drafting Vince Young, as the dumbest moves we've made in the past seven years.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In a classy move that will pay honor to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, the New York Jets will wear a special decal on their helmets. No word yet on if the Titans will do the same, but I can guarantee you there will be a solemn moment of silence before the kick-off.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In the gimmicks to end all gimmicks, a couple from Henderson, TN will set the Guinness Book of World Records for the most renewal of vows by one couple. In their 28 years together, the two have held 105 marriage ceremonies, including 13 of them at Hard Rock Cafes around the world.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How thin is the Jets' WR corps? They signed Braylon Edwards off of the scrap heap, and desperately hope he'll be healthy enough to contribute tonight.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Tim Tebow should get some snaps tonight in the Jets' wildcat package, which suits his strengths since he still throws the ball like a punch-drunk fullback.
