    Chris Johnson, LenDale White, Tony Brown, and Stephen Tulloch are all absent from organized team activities.

    However, CJ wasn't at these activities last year either. But he does want a new contact, which he deserves it. CJ wants to be paid the highest offensive player, which is stupid. Highest paid runningback... maybe, offensive player...no. Deserves a raise, make him top 3 highest paid RB so he'll be happy.

    White, Brown, and Tulloch are RFA so no wonder their sitting out. Technically, they don't even know if their Titans. White I don't really care about. But Brown and Tulloch need to be re-signed, esp. Tulloch.

    Yes, for sure. Both of them. We should let Lendale sign somewhere else or trade him.

    I'm not worried about White or Johnson but we need to get Brown and Tulloch in here.

    CJ won't miss games, the worst case scenario is he sits out a little at training camp. He just wants to get paid more than the 2.4 mil he gets now. He should be a top 5 highest paid RB.

    Tulloch - He'll get resigned, needs about a 4+ year deal.

    LenDale - I'd love for him to go, but I don't think anyone will give up a 2nd for his (what his tender is). Maybe a third. I thought Seahawks would be nice, with Pete in all, but they signed an ex-Titan in Ganther.

    I'm cool with CJ making top 5 or even top 3 RB money.

    But he better get that highest paid offensive player nonsense out of his head.

    I'm guessing the RFAs won't be able to come to BSP until they sign their tenders.

    the titans are kinda stupid right now. they need to take advantage of the no cap and give the guy a mad bonus and front load that in the first year.

    by doing that he can be the most AFFORDABLE top 3 positional paid player ever - he could average even a 3-4M $ a year if terms are done correct.

    And he could "forget" that bonus in a few years when he's only making 3-4 M and watching other RBs get much bigger yearly salaries. In theory it's great, but I don't know how well it would work. Not to compare him to Haynesworth because they are different guys, but you can see the danger in giving a lot of guaranteed money up front.

    CJs problem is the 30% rule regarding salaries. We can't "make it rain" on him, unless it's with a huuuuuge SB - and that's a bad idea.

    CJ is only as good as his legs. i wouldnt offer him big $ unless he could prove to stay healthy. I'd keep him for cheap another year, then gamble on his legs and money.
