Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

just saw on rotoworld that Jim Zorn said the redskins will have internal discussions about whether to sign Larry Johnson. The skins will pay 2.1 million in waivers to get the disgruntled ex-chief.

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...

I hope this is not true and that this has no teeth.

First and foremost, I would think that the offensive line needs addressing before adding another tailback.

As if Jim Zorn has any say in what the Redskins do. He will only know about it if he reads it on PFT.

i don't think he's coming here. he's got a bad attitude and playing behind this line will only make the locker room worse. no thanks.

Sandtrapjack - you make too much sense - but at this point is there anyone even left out there that we can sign? Can we still sign away some other teams practice squad lineman and just throw him in there and take a flyer?

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.

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Id take him, then we can have time to work on the oline in the draft instead of going after a RB in this draft to replace CP.

Oh no!!! Didn't we learn anything from the Shaun Alexander and TJ Duckett fiasco. Retread backs are just that...retreads. The rubber will finally come off!

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

I'd rather start Betts and Cartwright.

Honestly, what in the hell do they think we will get out of a 30 yo back? 30 yo running. I think that Betts and Cartwright did outstanding yesterday considering our line issues

Re: Jim Zorn says redskins could pursue L. Johnson

Betts does great when he is when CP is out, plus he sighned a big contract to stay here.

We dont need LJ, we need to clean house.

This smells of Vinny or even Snyder.
