NFL: Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson tells the Tennessean he likes all of the Titans off season signings except for one. Johnson says he doesn’t completely understand why the team signed running back Shonn Greene to a three year, $10 million deal.
Johnson says he’s never been a fan of the two back system, but says he will make the best of the situation.
Meanwhile, Titans coach Mike Munchak says it’s time for quarterback Jake Locker to take charge. Munchak says there will be no quarterback competition between Locker and newly signed Ryan Fitzpatrick. Locker played five games his rookie season and was named the starter last year, before spending a portion of the season out with a shoulder injury.
Munchak says Fitzpatrick understands his role is to back up Locker, but at the same time will help push Locker to improve.
