Johnson gets new deal
Chris Johnson’s agent says the running back and the Tennessee Titans have agreed on a revised deal that will ensure he reports with the rest of the team for training camp. Joel Segal would not say how much of a raise Johnson is getting, but did say the running back will get a pay increase. Johnson will reportedly earn $2.5 million this season under the revised deal. The AP 2009 Offensive Player of the Year wanted more money after becoming just the sixth back to run for at least 2,000 yards. He sat out the entire offseason in protest.
Elsewhere, the Oakland Raiders signed receiver Jacoby Ford of Clemson, their fourth-round pick in the draft.
