11:47 AM ET 03.23 | The Tennessee Titans are going to have a few unhappy running backs heading into the season. Coaches will need to do some convincing to get their backs on board with a running-back-by-committee approach, or else risk a volatile locker room whenever one of the backs is not receiving their carries. It was just two days ago that Chris Johnson spoke out and said he did not understand the signing of free agent Shonne Greene, and now his former backup, Javon Ringer, is speaking out against the signing of the former New York Jets rusher. Ringer is upset that the Titans went out and signed Greene, rather than giving him a shot at relieving Johnson of some carries. He states that he has nothing against Greene personally, but feels he has done enough to earn a shot. He is ready for his chance to prove himself and he's beginning to understand that opportunity may never came in Tennessee.

Ride the RB who's playing better (unless you have AP) that day, not so hard to understand.

Javon, apparently the coaches don't agree with your opinion of yourself. You do understand that they call the shots and you don't, right?

That should be quite a tandem out of the backfield. Maybe Johnson should've taken the high road on his comments.

Number one Javon your last name is not Adams so you do not sign the checks, and number two Javon did you really think you have a chance to be the man in Tennessee with Johnson ahead of you.

Shut up and play. Overpaid babies ...

This from a running back who said he was comfortable in the second string position, any back or player who does not push himself to be number one does not deserve to be number two. He never lived up to the potential Tennessee thought was there, don't know how he made it this long, would have been better to keep Lendale.
