Chris Johnson is having to reconsider the direction of his career after the possibility of being traded away from the Tennessee Titans.

Johnson's current contract has him earning $8 million a season but his time in Tennessee seems to be coming to an end and the running back is considering taking a pay cut in order for a trade to be feasible.

It seems that a speedy resolution is required for the Titans, Johnson may well be on the move as he looks to facilitate a trade.

The Titans aren't required to pay Johnson any roster bonuses this offseason which means they have the capability of holding on to the running back for five months before deciding whether to cut him in the preseason.

If that is in fact how the story would unfold for the speedster, then he wouldn't have long to find himself a new franchise and that is the real reason why he needs to push for a trade.

The Titans also sit in an uncomfortable position in regards to Johnson's contract, if the running back was to suffer a season ending injury then Tennessee would be required to pay his $8 million contract in full and it would also count against their salary cap.

The pay cut and trade makes sense for both Johnson and the Titans, the situation will hopefully be sorted out in the near future as it is the best for both parties.
