Chris Johnson is relatively happy with the moves the Titans are making this offseason. So much so that he told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean that, “It looks like we’re getting some good players, and I see they are trying to get the offensive line right. I am pretty happy.”
But there is at least one move that the Titans have made the Johnson isn’t “pretty happy” about. The Titans signed former running back Shonne Greene to a 3-year, $10 million contract to help should the load in the running game and Johnson isn’t exactly thrilled about it. Mainly because he doesn’t exactly care for two-back systems, especially when he has to play in one.
“I have never been a big fan of the two-back system, so I don’t know how we plan on using him,” Johnson said casually. “I’m not afraid of competition, but I was thinking we’d maybe get a draft pick for the other back. And you don’t give a guy that kind of money to be just a goal-line guy and in tough-yardage situations. So we’ll see what happens.”
But don’t be alarmed Titans fans, Johnson says he’ll “just roll with it.”
“I’ll just roll with it. Of course I don’t want to carry the ball 30 or 40 times a game,” said Johnson, who averaged 17.25 carries per game last season.
“And I don’t mind a guy getting a carry or two. But if I am the main guy and it is supposed to be my team … it shouldn’t be an issue.”
Yeah, something tell us it’s going to be an issue.
