Final Numbers on Chris Johnson’s Contract


After holding out 34 days, Johnson received a 4-year extension added on to the 2 years left on his rookie deal.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports spells it out:

The deal puts Johnson in the elite category he preferred, and Wyatt was the first with the terms: $13.375 million per year in the new four years of the contract, and $9.21 million per year over the life of the deal (including the two remaining years left on Johnson’s rookie contract).

6 more years of Johnson, that should be worth watching.
Now, we can get on with our lives and watch some football.
