Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson and the Titans have agreed to a restructured deal, but the deal still is not signed, a source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The agreement was first reported by Profootballtalk.com. Both sides are reviewing the contract, which could be signed within the next 48 hours. Some of his maximum $2.5 million escalator will be moved forward, and no new years will be added to the deal, the source said.
“We’re still talking through some issues,” a source familiar with the process said Monday. “It’s going to get done, but it’s not done yet.” Johnson had said he would hold out from the Titans’ training camp, which begins July 31, unless he received either a long-term deal or a short-term fix to his 2010 salary.
