September 1, 2011 Leave a comment
Tennessee- It nearly took all of pre-season for the Titans’ and running back Chris Johnson to come to an agreement, but the deal has finally been made.
The Florida native held out until there was only a few days left in the pre-season. The larger contract he had been waiting for came in the sum of $53 million with his 4-year extension, with $30 million of the contract guaranteed.
Johnson has led the league in rush yards for the past three season, with him racking up 1,364 yards this past year.
CJ28 showed the rest of the league that if you hold out long enough, you can get the money you think you deserve. He had numbers to back his claims and got his desired contract.
Jacksonville- Long-time Jaguar, Fred Taylor has decided to hang em up after 13 seasons in the NFL. Taylor spent his first 11 seasons with the squad that drafted him back in ’98.
After spending two seasons with the New England Patriots, the Jaguars have decided to sign Taylor to a one-day deal in order to retire the running back as a Jag.
Taylor rushed for nearly 12,000 yards in his career and tallied 66 touchdowns to go along with 7 seasons of at least a thousand yards.
The classy move by the Jags should show everyone that this game is more than one-field battles and contract negotiations. Thank you, Jags.
