Johnson returning to Nashville to talk with Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee running back Chris Johnson says he is flying to Nashville to meet with the Titans' general manager, a move that might bring both sides closer to getting a deal done and end his holdout.

Johnson tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he is flying to Nashville Tuesday night and that he and his agent -- Joel Segal -- will meet with general manager Mike Reinfeldt on Wednesday morning.

The three-time pro bowler has refused to report to camp despite having two years left on his original contract. The Titans have said they will make him the highest paid running back in NFL history, but want him to report first before accelerating talks.

Johnson also tweeted that things could get better or worse after the meeting.
