Chris Johnson missed his sixth minicamp practice on Wednesday and, while most fans seem to support his position as far as I can tell, somebody close to Johnson needs get him off of Twitter. On Thursday morning Johnson tweeted that “ppl dont understand ths is my life & my body so I know wht I deserve, I wnt a super bowl but when u dont wnt 2 do wht it takes 2 get 1 its not gonna happen”.
Really Chris? Is there confusion amongst the Titans front office as to whose life Chris Johnson belongs to? Is there some uncertainty that perhaps his body belongs to someone else? If so, that may be contributing to why the Titans are hesitant to offer him a new contract. Who can blame them where there is clearly uncertainty as to exactly who has legal ownership over Johnson’s body??
The last part is my favorite, “I wnt a super bowl but when u dont wnt 2 do wht it takes 2 get 1 its not gonna happen”. The Titans already have Johnson under contract, so its not a matter of signing a player that they otherwise wouldn’t have. We all agree that he deserves more money but he is the one who signed the contract originally. I am not sure if this is what Johnson intended to say, but what he said could be interpreted as ‘if you don’t pay me more money i won’t play as hard as if you give me more money’. I certainly hope this is not the case. I am hoping that he just doesn’t realize that what he is tweeting might not be conveying the message he is intending.
I love Chris Johnson. I think he deserves more money. Somebody get him off Twitter!!!
