Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson doesn't seem to be to happy with his with his role on the team. According to Johnson:

"No disrespect, I love Tennessee and would love to be in Tennessee," Johnson told The Tennessean. "But I feel like I am wasting the prime years of my career if I am not used right. You feel me? It is crazy to look at backs around the league and see the opportunities they have."
This season Johnson ran the ball for 1,077 yards, but only had 279 carries, which was his second-lowest total of his six-year career. Johnson has not officially requested a trade, but it sounds like he would be open to the idea:

"I feel like if they are not going to use me the way I am supposed to be used and let me be the horse, then I would rather them let me move on," the 28-year-old Johnson told the paper. "Their money would be wasted on me. I feel like if they are not going to use me right, let somebody get me that's going to use me the right way."

"I want to help the team win," Johnson told the paper. "People say, 'He is not worth the $10 million, he is not worth the $8 million.' I feel like if you give me $8 million, let me earn it.

"At crucial times of the game, I shouldn't be on the sideline watching."

What do you think? Are the Titans using Johnson the right way?
