It’s never too soon to start talking about football. This past week the Tennessee Titans agreed to restructure Chris Johnson’s contract, raising his salary of $550,000 for the 2010 season to $2.5 million. Johnson exploded last year breaking the 2,000 yard rushing barrier while collecting 500 yards through the air.
Step aside Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson is going to steal the show. Lightning speed combined along with an uncanny vision of the field are the two main components of Tennessee’s weapon. But, imagine if he was on a team who could actually stretch the field. Last year quarterback Kerry Collins appeared to reach his age threshold and, despite having some success, Vince Young still throws the football like a man might toss a sack of dung, mechanically speaking.
Chris Johnson will be a stud again next year, and the Titans better keep him happy as long as they can. However, without a quarterback who can keep the safeties back, Johnson might receive too much attention to put up the same stellar numbers as he did last season. I’m pullin’ for you big guy!
For the record: Titans make the wild-card, but lose in the first round.
