Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson will return to the team in 2013, according to an ESPN report.
The Titans kept Johnson following a Thursday conversation between their star and Titans head coach Mike Munchak.
"Had a great 30min convo with coach munchak and we both look forward to making that next step," Johnson tweeted.
The Titans had to make a decision Saturday, when $9 million of Johnson's $10 million salary would have become guaranteed if he remained on the roster.
Johnson rushed for 1,243 yards and six touchdowns this past season.
