    Titans running back Chris Johnson sounds much more excited about the team’s additions of Andy Levitre, Chance Warmack and Brian Schwenke than he is about the addition of Shonn Greene, but the Tennessee coaching staff believes Greene can help make Johnson a better player too. The Titans have tried to sell Johnson on the fact that giving Greene some of his carries will make Johnson more effective because he will be fresher, and it will extend his career. They are planning on using Johnson and Greene they way they used Johnson and LenDale White together early in Johnson’s career. Greene also will give the Titans some peace of mind in the event Johnson gets banged up. And there will be this benefit: last year while playing for the Jets, Greene was 100 percent on converting third and ones.
