Maybe if Russell Okung falls into our laps Vinny pulls the trigger but anyhting else I see too many other top players in the top 10 that Vinny would go after like an Eric Berry or one of the qb's.
Well I just read an AP report that Zorn is VERY concerned about the concussion that CP sustained in the Falcons game.

According to Zorn, Portis does not even remember the play it happened on. CP is already listed as doubtful for next weeks game.

That and Ladell Betts has a sprained ankle. That is Zorns reasoning for looking to add another RB.

According to the AP report, the Redskins are looking to add a safety and an running back.

So the million dollar question is, if they sign 2 players, who goes to IR or gets released to make room?

If LJ is signed, someone has to go.

I'd rather bring back Alridge if we need a short term back for the roster.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Meh i still think Betts and Rock running yesterday proved that we can run with a good rb, it's not all the lines fault. The play that Portis got hurt was the perfect example of why he is just as much to blame for the Skins not being effective in the run game. He's got a big hole, holding the ball with both hands and has no burst or balance. He's out and suddenly we can get 4 yards on first down which completely opened up the offense.

On that note, Larry's got a lot of baggage and adequate rb's are a dime a dozen. Bring back the young rb's we dropped.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

On a team with a good OL I think LJ could still be effective, but his off the field baggage right now makes him untouchable.

And to claim him off waivers when it's very unlikely anyone else is going to touch him at that $2M tag is absurd.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

I don't know how much more I can take of this.. It's going to be hard for me to really LOVE my skins anymore after this season, especially if we bring in a PUNKASS BITCH like LJ when we are 2-6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good post. I think we have had a revolving door at spots 51-53, so I can't imagine that would change. Paluesco would go for a few days, come back if hunter still hurts.

Man we have had so many roster changes at the 52nd and 53rd spot, I can't remember which guys are there now. But you are right someone would be gone.

If I had to guess, you shut Chris Horton, Mike Williams or Chris Cooley down (or all 3) to make the necessary roster moves.

Larry Johnson is not the answer (cost is too high), but if both Portis and Betts can't go, you're looking at Cartwright and Sellars getting the carries. So you look at re-signing Aldridge or Ganther (or both if you can swing it). The Skins have a safety on their practice squad, but between Landry, Moore and Doughty, they'd be ok for a week or so.

I agree. Alridge, Mason, Dorsey, or even Ganther are familiar with the system and the terminology. LJ is no longer a 1,700 yard back. I don't understand the attraction of LJ when we have other acceptable options.

I totally agree. If we do sign LJ, at least wait to make a better deal. I am reminded of Erasmus James, on whom we spent a 7th pick when the Vikes were going to cut him anyway.

According to the Twitter of ryanohalloran

Per source, #Redskins have no interest in Larry Johnson.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Umm, what happened to the big RB/FB we picked up when Samuels went out? If they need a power runner why not bring him up from the PS and use him?

Me too, but I'm sure it has something to do with blocking knowledge or something. Instead though they would rather bring someone on board who has no knowledge of the Skins play calls and blocking scheme and let him sit a few games to learn like Levi Jones.
