RB Chris Johnson Placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report List

Last week the Titans met with RB Chris Johnson about his return to the team. After the talks basically went nowhere, the team today placed the running back on the reserve/did not report list.

By doing so, the Titans free up an extra roster spot for the final preseason game.

The administrative move has no impact on contract talks with Johnson, who met with the Titans last week but remains a holdout. Coach Mike Munchak said he hadn’t heard of any changes in the talks.

“Then I think you have to make a lot of decisions,” Munchak said. “Not only that one but we’ll have a lot of big decisions at every spot.”

Johnson wants a new deal from the Titans to make him one of, if not the highest paid RB in football. The Titans have stated they want to make him the highest-paid running back in NFL history, but both remain far apart so far.

Javon Ringer, who has 59 career carries in his two NFL seasons, and rookie Jamie Harper along with Herb Donaldson and Stafon Johnson are the teams running back. If a deal isn’t reached soon, Munchak has said they likely would need to add a veteran at the position.
