|CJ's deal is done. Finally.|
The Titans and Chris Johnson have agreed on a four-year, $53.5 million extension to his current contract, in which roughly $30 million is guaranteed.
Both sides made a gigantic blunder each: The Titans insisted he come to Training Camp to get a deal done, which likely only delayed the process; and Chris Johnson didn't consider the consequences of erratic tweeting, which did nothing to help his image among the fans.
Johnson probably ought to be happy the deal got done within hours of his controversial tweets, because he completely turned the PR battle away from his favor with slightly fewer than 140 characters.
So, TGIO: Thank God It's Over. After five months of hearing about nothing but the lockout, followed by 35 days of hearing about nothing but Chris Johnson's holdout, we can finally...FINALLY...get Back to Football. ...or is it Back to Footboll?
