Fisher: Titans hope to negotiate with Johnson soon
Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher says the Titans would like to meet and talk with unhappy running back Chris Johnson before the team's next minicamps in June.
Johnson has stayed away from the team's offseason program and voluntary minicamps including Tuesday's session. The Associated Press NFL 2009 Offensive Player of the Year wants a pay hike after becoming the sixth man in league history to rush for at least 2,000 yards.
The Titans have argued publicly that Johnson has three years left on the five-year, $12 million deal signed in 2008 that guaranteed him just under $7 million.
Fisher said Johnson had asked him to take part in the running back's football camp. Fisher said he wants the running back to take part in his camp.
