John­son gets new deal

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS BRIEFING -

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.
