    I'd rarely make a big move for a RB, but a 25 year old Chris Johnson would definitely be something to consider.

    He supposedly wants the moon in his new contract though. The Titans reportedly have offered to make him the highest paid back in the league and that isn't good enough.

    No thanks. Johnson is another example of a player focused on numbers, not championships. Anyway, how many Super Bowls has he won by himself?

    I would love for the Titans to not trade him and just let him sit out the year unsigned and unpaid. These players and their contract demands while still under contract irks me. Honor your agreement.

    They can have Tashard Choice from us for a 5th round draft choice and be ok. If they have their sights on a Super Bowl this year they are being foolish.

    I'm a huge CJ fan, but the above statement makes sense to me.

    It's mind-boggling to think how good Johnson would be here but we would really have to mortgage the future to get him and we already have a couple of backs here that I'm excited about. Felix could easily surpass 1500+ total yards.

    While CJ has had fantastic years recently, some are worried he is playing for that big payday and then he would go Haynesworth on you.

    That worries me. I don't think I would give up the ranch for CJ. Plus I don't think he would make up for the loss in personnel, money and aggravation with his productivity. We can win without him.

    Video games and fantasy football have helped corrupt intelligent football conversation.

    Ok then the team should honor it as well. Why can teams just cut you and let you go when your under contracts? It goes both ways.

    Well, it's not like they value draft picks so why not?

    If I could trade Felix straight up for CJ then I would do but CJ would have to agree to my contract first and I'm not paying him more than I'm paying Romo, which is what he wants. He wants 13 million a year for the 1st 3 years all guarenteed. SO no way would I trade for him.

    Oakland might take him though, they don't mind over paying players.

    If we were really in need of a running back, I might be with you on this.

    But the price is too high just to upgrade the position IMO. Not only do we give them a starting running back, but also a first-round pick, and then we have to pay Johnson the enormous salary he's demanding.

    The Titans should be tickled pink if they get such an offer.

    Yeah one or the other ... I would give him a solid contract like DeAngelo Williams money.....

    Felix and a future first ... He is a game changer certainly.. But none of this first second third 100mil contract felix etc.

    +1. It's not close. CJ is much faster.
