Titans May Cut Chris Johnson After Super Bowl To Avoid Cap Hit
ESPN.com is reporting that the Tennessee Titans have a 5 day window after the Super Bowl in which they need to decide if they will keep the explosive running back Chris Johnson or cut him without any cap penalty.
If Chris Johnson is a Titan after February 9, $9 million of his $10 million salary for 2013 would be guaranteed. It reportedly will be one of the biggest decisions the franchise will have to make this offseason.
Johnson last week became just the eighth player in NFL history to run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first five seasons.
The Titans must decide if Johnson is worth hanging onto with such a rebuilding job ahead of them.
