Rookie Jamie Harper might receive more playing time than anyone planned on for 2011.

Rotoworld has linked us up for the day.

First up, Jake Locker will not unseat Matthew Hasselbeck as starter.

This comes as no surprise and it will take a few months before the coaching staff even gives a legit consideration to the idea. Hasselbeck is getting $9 million this season…….that means he is starting.

Now, our seemingly tri-weekly update that Chris Johnson wants a lot of money and the Titans want Chris Johnson, yet we can’t come to a deal.

Uhm, that’s a lot. I’m not sure if the Titans are going to be willing to give Johnson that much money, but if you compare him to the other major playmakers around the league, he is in the discussion for the top of the list. If Larry Fitzgerald gets that kind of money, why can’t Johnson?

But wow! That’s a lot of cash. This could have an effect on the team (through the salary cap) that is so negative, it overshadows Johnson’s play. OR it could be awesome. I guess we’ll find it when the Titans big wigs play “Let’s Make A Deal” with Johnson, whenever that happens.
