David Johnson is not expected to receive a contract extension before Week 1.
Advice: Johnson, who said he was "encouraged" by ongoing contract discussions just two weeks ago, doesn't seem likely to strike a new deal with the Cardinals prior to Week 1. He's currently scheduled to make $1.88 million in 2018. Johnson was targeting a second consecutive campaign with 2,000-plus yards from scrimmage before injuring his wrist in the season opener and sitting out the final 15 games of the 2017 season. He's still the only young and established weapon on offense in Arizona and remains worthy of a contract similar to Todd Gurley's (four-year, $60 million).
