    Chiefs cut Larry Johnson

    [url="http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/11/09/chiefs-cut-larry-johnson/"]http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/11/09/chiefs- ... y-johnson/[/url]

    The Kansas City Chiefs released RB Larry Johnson on Monday, the same day he was eligible to return to the team following a one-week suspension.

    The Chiefs still owe Johnson, whose contract runs through the 2012 season, $2.275 million — the remaining portion of his $4.55 million salary this season. He missed a paycheck on Sunday after being suspended for making gay slurs.

    Johnson first posted the slur on his Twitter account after also questioning coach Todd Haley’s credentials. He then repeated the slur the next day to reporters.

    In 75 games (55 starts) with Kansas City, Johnson rushed 1,375 times for 5,996 yards with 55 touchdowns. He also registered 151 receptions for 1,369 yards with six touchdowns. He concluded his Chiefs career with 30 100-yard rushing games and also added two 100-yard receiving games.

    Johnson established an NFL single-season record with 416 rushing attempts in 2006 when he set a franchise single-season mark with 1,789 rushing yards. He originally entered the league as the Chiefs first-round selection (27th overall) in the 2003 NFL Draft out of Penn State.

    That is kind of shocking.

    look for him to either:

    -- sign with the Patriots for a vet min and become a star OR

    -- sign with the Skins for a huge sum and become a bust.

    I'm thinking maybe Green Bay. After losing to the Bucs, their fans might be a little more acceptable to taking on this turd.

    Thank God we have 3 RB's that our coaches love or I could see Mike Brown making a play for him...

    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Well played sir.

    It will be interesting to see if Johnson can find another job. Johnson's skills are in serious decline, and he is a malcontent. I realize that the KC team is in rough shape, but from what I've seen from Johnson this year, he doesn't have any burst or power left, leaving him as just an old, slow back.

    I can obviously see the *s giving him a shot -- his recent history as a malcontent seems to work for them. Other than that, I can't see many teams being interested, especially since he is still likely to ask for a huge contract.

    I'm in the minority... I'd sign him and bring him here. Why allow an opponent to do that? esp. the Pats.
