It may be old news, but it seems the Titans are intent on getting rid of Chris Johnson, and getting something for him.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Titans will attempt to try and trade Johnson.
Per league source, Titans will soon begin attempting to trade RB Chris Johnson. Full story coming at PFT.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean confirmed the report.
I suspect the #Titans are gauging trade interest for RB Chris Johnson. Not sure how successful they'll be with expectation he'll be released

Johnson has made it clear that he wouldn’t take a paycut to remain a Titan, and the team has spent weeks deliberating about the former All-Pro’s future.
The Titans are unlikely to find any trade partners considering Johnson still has three years remaining on his six-year, $55.26 million contract and is owed $8 million in 2014.
Johnson finished with just 1,077 yards and a career-low 3.86 yards per carry in 2013.
He is likely to be released by Tennessee.
