Chris Johnson remains in limbo with the Titans.

Asked about the veteran running back's status, coach Ken Whisenhunt today told reporters "this whole thing is a process."

"There's not a timetable on doing it. We're trying to do what's best for the team," Whisenhunt said at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. "We're certainly sensitive to try and resolve this whole deal sooner than later. It's just a process that you go through."

The Titans are shopping Johnson, who is scheduled to make $8 million for the 2014 season, and indications are there is interest in the three-time Pro Bowler despite his lackluster 2013 season of 1,077 yards on 279 carries with a career-low 3.9 average.

If the Titans find a trade partner, Johnson's contract would have to be restructured.

"I hope the fan base understands we're trying to do what's best for our team," Whisenhunt told reporters. "All that matters is what we do on Sundays and winning those games."

Johnson started running this week for the first time since surgery earlier this offseason to repair a torn meniscus.
