This could be a pivotal upcoming moment in the negotiations between star running back Chris Johnson and the Tennessee Titans. Johnson said he's traveling to Nashville for a meeting with general manager Mike Reinfeldt and agent Joel Segal.

"Flying out to Nashville tonight to meet with Joel and the GM in the morning to see which way were going," Johnson wrote on ihs Twitter account. "Could get better or worst Johnson has been holding out because he wants a new contract, and wants to become one of the highest paid offensive players in the game.

The Titans have said they are willing to make him one of the highest paid running backs in the NFL.

So, there's the disconnect. The Titans are allowed to fine Johnson $30,000 per day during the holdout.

"I'm not gonna make any offer with the way he's acting," Adams said recently. "Life's too short. These agents sometimes get carried away and don't really tell the player what their position is. Players usually leave it up to them to get it done, but sometimes they make mistakes with what they tell them.

"It's hard for me to believe that he wouldn't want to come in and start playing. I hope that he will make his mind up here pretty quick, because this $30,000 a day can start adding up pretty quickly.”
