Most of that 12 million is not guaranteed.

I like the move over Willie Parker or LT, both of which are still without a contract.
And he won't have to bribe anyone to get his jersey number. Smoot conveniently left it for him.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I thought fast Willie would have been the better change of pace, but there's always room to make that type of move in the draft.

If LJ keeps his nose clean it might work out to be a good signing.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I don't want this piece of crap in a Redskins uniform.

I hope he doesn't make it through training camp.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Isn't he like 80 years old at this point? Kind of hard to hold a football and a walker at the same time

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I can't stand this guy. Don't we already have a drama queen RB??? His numbers speak for themselves but I don't know. He's always ripping teammates, coaches and so on. This has disaster written all over it.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

as long as he puts in the effort it's good

not like we told him he's the man for the next 3 years, just signed a contract

I hear ya man, to me the risk-reward is just not there. We are trying to build a fresh atmosphere around the park and we sign this guy. idk, but i am officially stupid.

If he helps us more than he hurts us we should be fine with it

people still support portis and he bitched here in DC.. same with 'Los

I don't care if you bitch about another team as long as you show up and do work here, there are legitimate gripes out there and there some some whiny asses too

like anyone else I wonder why he was the guy, but like everyone else here, I'm not the coach so I'll have to play the wait and see approach

the idea that we always have to have the best guy available should've worn thin on you guys a long time ago

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Its a big game and the skins have the ball first and goal from the 5 yard line. L.J and C.P are both healthy. Who do you want in the backfield?. L.J gets my vote.

Anyway, I agree he technically has less mileage than his age suggests.
Rabach got 3 years/12 mil

I'd say paying that for an RB isn't so bad
