Sunday we wrote about reports that the Tennessee Titans may cut or part with ways with running back Chris Johnson because they had a five-day window after the Super Bowl to either be on the hook for $10 million in salary for 2013 or release Johnson.

The Titans put any  talk of releasing Johnson to rest quickly and are letting people know they will keep Chris Johnson and pay the $10 million salary according to Pro Football Talk via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

According to Rapoport, the Titans feel Johnson’s ability to still be a top 7 rusher in the league after a slow start , as well as his status as the team’s most recognizable star, makes him worth the money.

I think Johnson cemented that thought when he exploded for that 94 yard touchdown run against the Jets on Monday night.

Johnson joins Barry Sanders as the only players in NFL history to have three touchdown runs of 80 yards or more in one season.
