Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has endured 100 days of an NFL lockout. But once the league and players finally come to an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement, Johnson is ready to lock himself out.
Last season, the team got him into camp by adding $1.5 million to his $500,000 salary. NFL.com reports that Johnson "is preparing for a much more prolonged holdout if need be and remains committed to joining the game's highest-paid running backs."
Johnson is set to earn $800,000 this season. "Johnson has talked in the past about wanting to join the ranks of those garnering $30 million in guaranteed money, and if the free-agent money begins flying around in a furious manner post-lockout, don't expect his desire to wane," the site reports.
