Latest free agent deal brings back a member of Titans' backfield

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 12:51pm

Not that long ago Quinn Johnson’s NFL status was a week-to-week affair.

Wednesday, the fullback got a bit more job security when he agreed to a multi-year contract to remain with the Tennessee Titans.

He first came to the Titans in a trade with Green Bay days before the 2011 season opener. He remained on the roster for four games while then-fullback Ahmard Hall served a league suspension but was released upon Hall’s return.

The Denver Broncos claimed him but waived him again in December. Then the Titans claimed him, and he has been with the team since.

Johnson became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday but re-signed with Tennessee a day later.

Half of his 40 career NFL games have been as a member of the Titans. He recorded his first four career rushes last season and has caught eight passes, including a career-high five last season, with Tennessee.

Good sign. They are also looking at Shonn Greene to back up CJ. Titans very active in signing very good free agents this year.

Given the Titans/Oilers tendency to retain ancient players and coaches, I expected Earl Campbell or Billy Johnson as players signed.

Both of you joy suckers really need to get a life. Life is too short to be bitter and jealous all the time. I couldn't stand being miserable like you two.

The Titans blow, and always will. Sincerely, Debby Downer.

Jughead, I'm really sorry that you have such a miserable life. Was it your childhood?

My question is: can these free agents bring their A-game to cooking programs on Food Network?

LOL! C relishes in taking one post out of context and then to twist it to suit him then he harps on it for years. Lack of brain cells will do that to you.
