Chiefs Release L. Johnson

With L. Johnson and Edge being available, I don't see any team trading with us for Portis (not that it was realistic, but still). I wonder if the Browns will pick up L. Johnson.

Kansas City Chiefs release troubled running back Larry Johnson - ESPN

The guy is a cancer, he might as well retire.

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

Larry Johnson = Shaun Alexander

Clinton Portis = Shaun Alexander

Johnson and Portis have the old running back syndrome aka the Shaun Alexander complex. The use to be premier running backs but cease to run hard. They choose to fall down on contact or perceived contact or run out of bounds.

Good move for KC. F him, dont want to see that cancer near Fed Ex. In a locker room that is already weak with leadership, adding him would be a huge mistake.

LJ won't be on the market on long. He's still good.

Can you tell me what part of my initial post said anything about him coming to Fed Ex?

Really? Clinton Portis = Shaun Alexander? You don't know what the hell you're talking about.

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

He'll probably clear waivers first because he's owed $2.1 million in base and I think like $500k in bonuses, so no one's going to sign him right away.

shaun alexander was a complete and utter product of an offensive line and fullback that got very little respect for what they had actually done

they had turned a scrub running back into a record breaker and a perennial all pro

shaun alexander wasnt a good running back but he was getting a lot of credit for what steve hutchinson and mack strong were actually doing

clinton portis and jarry johnson get their numbers behind pretty bad lines and not one great standout.....thats not even close to the right comparison

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

Not too surprised. He only has himself to blame with his attitude problems. But that tweet he sent out was funny. Not the making fun of gays, but what he said about Haley. I never knew the guy NEVER play any football in his entire life. That's pretty pathetic that he's got an NFL job and never ever played any football on any level.

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

Not that I'm excusing or justifying Johnson, but I believe he did want out of KC when the new regime took over in KC. I still don't know why teams are bent on keeping players that don't want to play for their team. I think a 7th rounder for him would have been better than whatever cap hit they are going to take with this cut.

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

Re: Chiefs Release L. Johnson

I could maybe--maybe-- see someone like, hate to say it, Pats or the Colts picking up LJ.

The only reason I'm relunctant to say the Colts is because they're undefeated and they aren't looking for any drama, but he would be a good addition to help pound the ball once they get deep into the playoffs. The Pats just because it's their M.O.

I agree. A smarter move by the Chiefs would have been to get whatever they could for him last spring. Hindsight...
