From yesterday's Q&A:
JOHNSON: "It’s big and it gives you a lot of responsibility, no matter if you want it or don’t want it. Any time they make you the highest-paid player in franchise history you have to own up to it not only on the football field, but also in the community and off the football field. Those are the type of things you have to live with being the top-paid guy and having those responsibilities."
JOHNSON: "It was difficult because I was training at API (Athletes Performance Institute) in Arizona. I wasn’t even supposed to be in Kansas City. I came to Kansas City to change clothes because I had been in Arizona for two weeks. I came home Sunday and I was pacing all through the house. I was like, ‘should I go up there (to Arrowhead), should I call, should I not call.’ I made the phone call to Herm (Edwards) and talked to him for a little bit. Then Carl (Peterson) called me and said we should meet. We met in a lounge and I was hoping we could have gotten it done that night, but things were optimistic. I was thinking we could get the deal done in the next two or three days and then it happened the next day after. I was grateful for that."
JERRY: It's been three days and he hasn't called.
ELAINE: Well maybe you should call him.
JERRY: I can't ... I can't
ELAINE: Why not?
JERRY: I don't know. I just feel he should call me.
ELAINE: What's the difference?
JERRY: You don't understand, Elaine. I don't want to be overanxious. If he wants to see me he has my number, he should call.
JOHNSON: "It will take a little longer than that. Obviously Coach is going to do a great job of getting me on track to where in Week Two or Week Three of the season I’m going to hit my full stride. I’m going to try to pick it up as fast as I can because what I know about myself is that I’ve never been a fast starter coming out of the blocks in a season. It’s always been the last eight games is when I really turn it on. Obviously I’m going to push myself as hard as I can to kind of even it out."
