Titans GM: Meeting with Johnson "beneficial"

Wednesday's meeting between holdout running back Chris Johnson and the Titans didn't result in a deal, but was "beneficial," according to general manager Mike Reinfeldt.

In a statement released by the club, Reinfeldt said it was important to have a face-to-face meeting to address Johnson's contract. He still has two years remaining on his original deal, but the Tennessean reported Johnson is seeking a contract that will make him one of the game's highest-paid players.

"I'm not sure there was any progress made, but I do think it was beneficial to meet," Reinfeldt's statement said. "We were able to discuss several different elements of a potential contract, but there was no agreement on those topics."

The statement said Reinfeldt and Vin Marino -- the Titans' vice president of football operations -- met with Johnson and his agent, Joel Segal. It also said Reinfeldt expects to talk with Segal again "in the next day or so."

Reinfeldt had previously told Sirius Radio the team was willing to alter Johnson's contract to make him the highest-paid running back in the history of the NFL.

But Johnson has missed all of training camp in holding out. He has totaled more than 1,000 yards rushing in each of his three NFL seasons, including 2,006 in 2009.
