He wants a long-term deal to stay. While sitting out a season is highly improbable, Johnson is certainly forcing Marvin Lewis' hand. But with Chris Perry on the roster and so many backs available, Cincinnati may be unwilling to give him one. Johnson better be careful, because there are more quality running backs than starting jobs available this offseason.
