CJ tweet aimed at 'fake Titan fans'

Chris Johnson’s frustration over his holdout may have boiled over on his Twitter account.

In a tweet around noon CT, Johnson tweeted “Can these fake Titan fans STFU on my timeline I don't have a regular job so don't compare me to you and I can care less if uthink I'm greedy”

Johnson and the Titans remain far apart in contract negotiations as he has been holding out since the start of training camp and has missed all of preseason. However, there are indications from league sources to TitanInsider that the two sides may be moving closer to reaching an agreement after weeks of being far apart.

The Titans are holding out hope that a deal could be done by the weekend that would get CJ into the facility in time to play the season opener Sept. 11 in Jacksonville, but so far there have been no breakthroughs in negotiations. But this may produce a backlash with some Titans fans.

Later, Johnson tweeted that he was not angry at his Titans fans.

"My titan fans taking it all wrong I'm talking to the ones writing me racist Comments. I'm not call the Titan fans fake at all. #LUV" the tweet said.
