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.
We are far enough into the season that waivers work in order of current records, not previous draft position. For example, the Redskins drafted 13th but now are around position 6 (depending on tiebreakers) for waivers.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

It doesnt surprise me now that the talk has simmered down.

I remember when we picked up Shaun Alexander last season. Portis wasn't very nice to him and you could tell that there was alot of animosity. I got the feeling from listening to him talk that CP was jealous of Alexander for what he had done early in his career.

But i see him being the same way about Larry Johnson. He'd take it personal that they'd bring in a guy that is just as good, maybe better than him at this point in his career.

This is different tho because Larry Johnson isn't a backup RB. If we brought him in now, there is a good chance we keep him next season. And with all the stuff about Portis' decline and the uncapped off-season, i think it creates too much of a locker room drama. I could totally see Portis going to Dan Snyder and giving him hell about bringing in another marquee back...

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Zorn on comcast last night pretty much said HE wasn't interested in picking up LJ, saying that he would have to sit down w/him first & talk to him to make sure there wouldn't be a chemistry issue. He then said he figured LJ would be picked up before they could do that.

So it sounded like Zorn isn't in favor of grabbing him up, but of course he doesn't sign the checks.

He interviews well, seems to be a good guy, yet has always had problems dating back to when Vermeil said he'd have to "take his diapers off."

He didn't say we wouldn't sign him. He said he doesn't have time to interview him. Like it's Zorn decision anyway, lol we all know if its anybody's decision its Vinny's.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

The funniest thing about this is that Betts is hurt and there is a realistic chance Gainther may play. We should have made this move!

This is huge news. They aren't bringing him in, or considering him, to be a backup. This tells me portis' days as the marquee back are coming to an end. And with rumors of the uncapped off-season, Portis could be gone next season...
Now do you see why you shouldn't start threads based on rumors?

We do it all the time, Buster. Not all rumors fizzle out.

Besides, the Skins did consider him. That's not a rumor.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

I for one am not that confident that Zorn is making those decisions anyway. Now that CP is ruled out of the Broncos game and dinged up, along with that ankle sprain that Betts has, I would not be surprised if Zorn got a call from VC telling him to go to the airport to pick up Johnson and give him a locker.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

I say it is funny because the front office is soooo bad. They are making moves based on the fans opinions and the sizzle it will create, not making moves based on the best interest of the football team.

And Vinny would say to Zorn; "if he calls you some gay slur on the ride home from the airport, just ignore it."

Zorn has only 8 games left so why would it mattered what he thought about LJ.
