Chron (John Shea) has an article about DJ's uncertain future.
He gets a little carried away in the first paragraph:

... Not good when you have to pull this one out:
Of course, Johnson has no answers. It's management's call. There's only one thing he wants to say about 2008.
"I can say I'm due," he said, "due for a big year."
