Titans Ready to Make Deal to Get RB Chris Johnson In for Opener

Appearing on NFL Network’s Total Access, Michael Lombardi said Tuesday that the Titans are “ready to make the offer” that will get running back Chris Johnson to report for practice and so he will be there for the 2011 season opener vs the Jaguars.

Lombardi characterized the Titans’ approach as “very aggressive” because they want to get a deal done this week. After finalizing Michael Vick’s contract, agent Joel Segal has his full attention on a new contract for Johnson. According to Lombardi, there hasn’t been any hostility, “they’ve opened up the bank vault,” and “it looks like they’re going to pay him.” Lombardi believes it’s “not too optimistic” to expect a new deal this weekend.
