|Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt|
As an illustration take a look below:
He has made three straight Pro Bowls and was named the offensive player of the year by The Associated Press in 2009.
Became the sixth player to ever rush of 2,000 yards in a season
So this goes back to the point that Johnson has clearly outplayed his rookie contract but in the defense of Tennessee, it’s only so much they can do. The league only allows a 30-percent limit on how much a player's base salary can increase from one season to the next. Tennessee could restructure a deal with guaranteed signing bonus money at the risk of what would amount into a front loaded guaranteed deal upwards of $40 million. In other words that isn’t happening as it would restrict the Titans cap flexibility over the upcoming years.
