The Tennessee Titans and running back Chris Johnson have agreed to a four-year contract extension.

He will be under contract through 2016 and has a revised deal worth $53.5 million, which includes $30 million in guarantees.

For the last three seasons Johnson has led the NFL in rushing.  He was the 24th overall draft pick in 2008.  He attended East Carolina.

Johnson refused to report to preseason camp without a new deal.  This agreement will end his holdout.

Titans sue Lane Kiffin, USC for poaching assistant!

The Tennessee Titans are suing Southern California and coach Lane Kiffin for “maliciously” luring away assistant running backs coach Kennedy Pola a week before training camp opens.

Tennessee Football Inc., the company that owns the Titans, filed the lawsuit Monday in Davidson County Chancery Court against both the university and Kiffin.

The lawsuit accuses Southern California and Kiffin of violating Pola’s contract that required him to have written permission to discuss a job with anyone other than the Titans.  Read more of this story here

A little context on Hostess-Gate

Hostesses traveled nearly 200 miles to attend a high school game in South Carolina in which at least three Tennessee recruits were playing…The hostesses are considered representatives of the university, which would mean they could not recruit players off campus. Therefore, the visits may be considered violations of N.C.A.A. recruiting rules.

The latest rumors involve a car accident in which Kiffin and some coeds were involved.

According to sources Kiffin let the scene before authorities arrived.

Inside the NFL Free Agency Begins

NFL free agency officially began this morning at 12:01 a.m. ET.

NFL Free Agency

NFL Free Agency (1993-Present)

In his closing arguments over Plan B free agency, the NFL’s attorney, Frank Rothman, said that removing Plan B “would be the destruction of the National Football League that we know today.”

That day came in 1993.

White v. NFL led to the “White Settlement,” which is what brought about a new form of free agency. Any veteran with at least five years of experience (eventually lowered to four) would become unrestricted free agents. However, it allowed teams to name its most valuable player as a “Franchise” player, and in the first and final two years of the CBA, it could name a player as a “Transition” players, each of which restricted their movement on the market.

Players with three or four seasons of experience were subject to the same right of first refusal/compensation system as before, essentially what we know today as restricted free agency. Teams had exclusive negotiating rights to players with fewer than three years of experience—what we know as exclusive rights free agents.

The settlement also brought about the salary cap. In 1994, the salary cap was introduced to the NFL because player salaries in 1993 reached the agreed upon 67 percent of team revenues. Set at $34.6 million for its initial season, the cap intended to serve as an equalizer in response to free agency.

  • Patriotstrade Matt Cassel (Quarterback) and Mike Valeran (Linebacker) for a second round draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Cardinals free agent Antionio Smith (Defensive End) signed  a five-year, $35 million contract that included a $12.5 million signing bonus. 
  • Detriot  Lions have traded John Kinta (Quarterback) to Dallas for  Anthony Henry (Cornerback)
  • Dallas Cowboys signed free agent and former Atlanta Falcon linebacker Keith Brooking to a three-year contract.
  • Dallas released 17-year veteran quarterback Brad Johnson on Thursday.
  • Detriot Lions signed Bryant Johnson (Wide Receiver) to a three-year, $9 million contract 
  • Buffalo Bills signed formers Carolina Panthers center/guard Geoff Hangartner
  • Detriot Lions reportedly tried to trade for Denver Broncos (Quarterback) Jay Cutler.
