NFL Rumors: Chris Johnson responds to ‘cancer’ rumors


Earlier this week, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker suggested there were multiple cancers in the locker room, players that he said caused the Titans not only to have a poor season but also lead to the firing of former head coach Mike Munchak.

One such player rumored to be a cancer was running back Chris Johnson. The veteran tailback was not thrilled with Walker whining about his teammates and called out the tight end for sub-tweeting on Twitter.

I usually dont do this but if you feel certain people was cancer to the team call them out and say names. It’s to late to mention it once season is over.

It appears the two players got over their differences though as Johnson appeared to be a bit more understanding and open to Walker the following day:

They just want drama no need to feed into it see u n LA RT @delaniewalker82: Just know me and @chrisjohnsontwo8 is on the same page!!!!!!

It’s not known who Walker was talking about (though there was one very unhappy wide receiver on the Titans this season) and it doesn’t appear as if anybody is going to throw out names either.
