The Titans running back is set to make $8M next season but does not have clarity on his situation yet, with the team not committed on his status for 2014, a source said. Team officials met with Johnson's agent, Joel Segal, at the combine but are still mulling their options.
Johnson underwent a minor offseason procedure, and played through the knee injury last season, in what was a down season for him (1,077 yards, 3.9 yards per carry, 6 TDs). Many around the league anticipate the Titans, with a new coaching staff in place under Ken Whisenhunt, will move on from Johnson given his high salary and what is usually a soft market for running backs.
The Titans are under no pressure to do anything immediately, with the start of the league year not until March 11, when free agency formally begins.
