It is my understanding that the Redskins wouldn't have to pay him or wouldn't have to pay him much if he's picked up.

Mistake, excessive baggage, price tag, despite the latter never seming to be a problem here.

If a team picks LJ up off the waiver wire (which means before 4 PM eastern time on 11/10), then that acquiring team also picks up his moneies owed. And LJ is carrying a 2.1Mill price tag right now.

The "Waiver Wire" is done in the order of the draft, each team gets a chance in that order to pick him up.

If no team picks him up off the wire (before 4PM EST), then he becomes and unrestricted free agent and can be signed by any team, but, the contract negotiations start all over and he looses that 2.1 mill.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Is Mason available? (surely this discussion hasn't gone this long without someone asking the ultimate question )

No, he was mentioned before in the thread, and yes, he's available.

Mason's gotta be tired of the Skins guiding him around by his nuts. I mean, it is money, but does he really wanna get back on the Skins bandwagon after they've repeatedly cut him?

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

I find it so funny that everyone wants to compare a 1st round talent like LJ to a mason who can seem to stay on the roster. come on man!

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

He was interviewed on the Dan Patrick show about 45 minutes ago and he seemed to be a very articulate, intelligent guy, kind of impressed by him. Too bad his actions speak louder.

No, the Chiefs owe him. It was written in his contract. Normally that is correct though.

No team claimed running back Larry Johnson off waivers, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, which means Johnson now is free to sign with any team and the Kansas City Chiefs must pay him the balance of the $2.1 million left on his contract this season.

What are his options right now? I mean we are talking about a 53rd roster spot kind of guy.

If the Skins call he will come running. They pay like twenty grand a game.

He's going to end up with the Texans.

That is because he was on the Chiefs roster for week 1 of the regular season.
