The move, which allows Tennessee to keep an extra player on the roster, is not expected to affect contract-extension talks, such as they are, between him and the team.

The holdup, and hence the holdout, is an age-old one. While the Titans have said they plan to make Johnson the highest-paid running back in the NFL with an extension, they would like him to rejoin the team. And Johnson wants a deal before he reports. The two sides reportedly talked last week and “there needs to be a sense of urgency,” General Manager Mike Reinfeldt said in a radio interview Saturday. “There certainly is on our part, but there needs to be on Chris and his agent.”
