Default Chris Johnson gets new deal?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ut-a-new-deal/

Quote:
A league source tells us that the Tennessee Titans and running back Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a new contract that solves the financial problems between team and player.

At least for 2010.

As expected, the arrangement will pay Johnson more money this year, with no additional years being added to the contract. Johnson currently is signed through 2012.

The new deal has not yet been signed, so we suppose it could fall through. But at this point it's unlikely.

Specifics aren't yet known. It had been reported that the Titans would likely accelerate some escalators money Johnson unlocked for future years as a way to bump up his $550,000 base salary for 2010.

The Titans weren't gonna give him the contract he wanted, and CJ eventually realized that. But, CJ's extremely prideful and the ego hit he'd have to take by succumbing to playing this year with the contract he'd been making a fuss about was something he'd take bitterly. So this is a great comprimise for both: The Titans don't have to make him the highest paid non-QB offensive player in the game (especially in the calm before the storm of a lockout), and CJ saves face and gets a 500% raise this season.

Only a short term fix though. He's gonna want a long-term contract eventually.

It says in that piece they move all the escalators into a signing bonus for this year. So does that mean he doesn't make more then base salary next year?

If he has another year like he did this year, he'll get a new contract. I don't know the contract implications of moving the escalator though.

So basically, they are giving him the escalators he could earn for the rest of his contract, and he won't be playing the contract no more.
