Have You Heard Chris Johnson Isn't at OTAs?

As announced previously in this space, Comcast has generously agreed to support the best NFL community around -- us! As part of that effort, between now and the end of the 2010 NFL season Comcast will be sponsoring a variety of special editorial and interactive features on our site.

If you live in Nashville, or ever listen to Nashville sports talk radio you are already sick of hearing about Chris Johnson being absent from the OTA's. It seems that ever segment turns into a debate about his situation.  It is driving me crazy. 

Here is the bottom line on CJ2K.  He isn't going to miss any real football games.  He isn't at OTAs, and he will probably miss some training camp, but when it comes time for the games to count and him to make some actual money, you better believe he will be there. 

I understand that it is a tough spot for both sides.  The Titans are in no hurry to re-do his deal because they have the best non-quarterback offensive player in the league for about $500,000 in base salary this year.  That is a great deal for them. 

CJ is coming off the greatest season ever put up by a running back.  He knows that running backs in the NFL have a limited shelf life so he needs to get that big contract as soon as he can.

It is going to be a long summer.  I have no idea how this is all going to end, but I am going to guarantee you that CJ2K will be on the field when the Titans take on the Raiders in week 1.
