Depending on how closely you have followed the NFL offseason, you may have heard something by now about a guy named Chris Johnson. Johnson, who has rushed for 4,598 yards in just three seasons with the Tennessee Titans, wants more money. The Titans are reportedly working on it and want to make Johnson an offer that will satisfy him and get him to camp. In the meantime, C.J. is tired of hearing from Titans fans on Twitter.
Like Arian Foster decided to do on Sunday, Johnson used his Twitter account to rip into fans on Wednesday. Perhaps these superstars don’t understand how the common fan operates, but acknowledging your critics only makes them louder.
It’s never a good idea to get on the fans bad side in a situation like this. The problem with Lil’ Weezy — I mean Johnson — is that he is said to be demanding one of the highest contracts in the league. He wants to be paid like the top players in the league, not just the top running backs. While we certainly agree he has completely outplayed his current contract, the shelf life of an NFL running back is proven to be extremely short. Not to mention, the Titans aren’t very good with or without C.J. Tennessee would be wise to get Johnson to camp as quickly as possible, but paying him like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning would be a horrible move for the future of their franchise.Google+
