It doesn’t sound as if Chris Johnson is overly impressed with what the Tennessee Titans coaching staff and front office have done in the early portion of the off-season.
Johnson sent out a message from his Twitter feed (@ChrisJohnson28) on Wednesday wondering aloud exactly what is going on with his team.
The tweet read: “All these subtractions and no additions so far. I just don't get it I want playoff guess I'll wait in see how free agency and the draft go”
Thus far, the Titans have gotten rid of Johnson’s running backs coach Jim Skipper, as well as special teams coach Alan Lowry, tight ends coach John Zernhelt and linebackers coach Frank Bush.
Also, chief operating officer Mike Reinfeldt was shown the door the day after the regular season ended.
The Titans finished the season 6-10, and have not made the playoffs since Johnson’s rookie season in 2008.
Johnson spoke at the end of the regular season about the Titans and his future and was asked if he wanted to remain a Titan.
“That’s nothing I really want to speak on right now. I love Tennessee. Without Tennessee, all the things I have accomplished wouldn’t be. I love being here and playing here, but at the end of the day, it’s just like a marriage,” Johnson said on locker clean out day. “Sometimes marriages come to an end, and if it does, there won’t be any bad blood. But I know if I’m here, I’m going to continue to do the things I have been doing.”
CJ finished 2012 with 1,243 yards rushing, but Tennessee can opt out of the remainder of the $53 million contract extension he signed in 2011 by refusing to guarantee the $9 million base salary he is scheduled to have in 2013. That must be done within five days after the Super Bowl.
