Johnson, Titans reach deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans and Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension ending the three-time Pro Bowl running back’s holdout.

Tennessee confirmed Thursday they agreed to terms on the revised deal. Johnson tweeted Wednesday night that he had dinner in Orlando with his agent Joel Segal “to discuss business.”

Johnson has led the NFL in yards rushing the past three seasons and refused to report to the camp without a new deal.

The running back will be under contract for the next six years, and the revised deal is worth $53.5 million with $30 million guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the contract. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the contract details remained confidential.

The Tennessean first reported the deal.
