Chris Johnson doesn't like or know what he gets paid...
Tennessee Titans Running Back Chris Johnson has proven in the past two seasons that he is one of the best running backs in the NFL.
Now he wants to be paid like it.
Johnson, the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year and a player entering his third season, signed a 5-year, $12 million contract upon being drafted in 2008. And according to the Nashville Tennessean, Johnson says "I can't play for $550,000 a year". He wants a new contract. And he wants it now.

Well, actually Chris you are playing for more than $550,000. Dude...do the math. 12 divided by 5 equals $2.4 million a year.
Are you the highest paid RB in the NFL...no. Will you be? If you keep going, yes.
