    I think Chris Johnson should be paid by the yard. They can promise him a percentage of touches from scrimmage. Receiving yards of course would pay a lesser rate but yac revert back to the standard rate for a carry.

    I agree, this is a reasonable price as well and I think both parties would agree to. Lets not let this become a distraction. Shut him up and lets focus on scoring touchdowns with this new offense.

    Just read on Twitter that the penalty for holdouts is now $30,000 per day. I think it was $5,000 under the old CBA. There is a one day grace period for this year only.

    "Twisted off by savages" That cracked me up!!

    Anyway, pay the man. It's possible that he deteriorates but what can we do? He's the best RB in football.

    He'll show up and play soon enough. He'll have a new contract though.
