Sapp: CJ2K will hold out through training camp

You probably know by now that the $550,000 in base salary that Titans RB Chris Johnson is scheduled to make next season just isn’t going to cut it for the reigning Offensive Player of the Year — not after he rushed for 2,006 yards, becoming just the sixth player in NFL history to reach that plateau.

And especially not when — as senior writer Vic Carucci recently pointed out — one of Johnson’s backups, Alvin Pearman, is due to make more than him ($630,000).

As a result, Johnson hasn’t been attending any of the Titans’ organized team activities. And NFL Network’s Warren Sapp, who recently spoke to Johnson in Orlando, Fla., where he’s training, said on Thursday’s Total Access that he is ready to hold out all the way through training camp if necessary.

“So you’re saying to me Chris Johnson is going to take this through training camp and into the playing season?” host Rich Eisen asked.

“No doubt about it — he’s prepared. He’s prepared to take this through training camp,” Sapp responded.
