Default Chiefs Releasing LJ?

It's getting harder and harder for him to be haunting us for years to come.

http://www.realgmfootball.com/src_wi...larry_johnson/

Jeff Risdon/RealGM - The Kansas City Chiefs will sever ties with problematic running back Larry Johnson, according to a team source that spoke to RealGM's Jeff Risdon on Tuesday afternoon.

The league and the team are investigating a pair of recent incidents, including one where Johnson used a gay slur. This is not the first time Johnson has gotten himself in trouble by using a gay slur, having had to apologize for the same offense last season. He was forced to apologize for this, as well as for negative comments directed at head coach Todd Haley. Haley has thus far refused comment.

The team has barred Johnson from any contact with the team.

This is a precursory move before the team formally releases Johnson before the end of the week, according to the source.

Part of the delay in releasing him involves going through the NFL’s disciplinary investigation, but the source was adamant that Larry Johnson has played his last game in Kansas City

The team is definitely trying to get a deal in place where he doesn't take the remainder of his pay as seperation pay and then the team doesn't fine him or suspend him without pay. They don't care about the league investigation they are just pinching the pennies.

I wonder where he will end up. I am sure-maybe even al- that someone will sign him within 2 weeks. Probably the redskins.

I give LJ his dues: He's a VERY smart guy!

When you're playing good football and TWO HoF Linemen retire from your team, Will Shields and Willie Roaf, OF COURSE you hold out for more money!
Now your team is crap, and you're wearing down, you say dumb crap to get kicked off the team!

Good luck to him, he's made his $$$ he can play on a few more years or retire!

I predict New England Patriots. That town loves racists and gay bashers.

Oh wait he will have to play in white face. is there such a thing as white face?

Man spike lee should make a parody on the ole black face movies by doing one but with white face instead.

Glazer reported this weeks ago, especially if it turns out to be true.

I'm not a Chiefs fan, but that would be great. I'd rather have Priest Holmes hold the Chiefs rushing record, not LJ...Priest was cool...

If the Raiders do decide to bring in LJ, all the rest of the Raiders will gather in front of Cable's office shouting, "Cut me! Cut me!"

Maybe LJ could be their QB as well.

Lets hope the faiders sign him, LJ is done and is as hard as it seems, less of a threat at RB than anyone else they have.

I don't think so. LJ has too many carries for that.

This might work in his favor. I'm sure some team out there who feels that they can compete this year will sign him. He'll most likely end up in a better situation.

Regardless - the guy is still a TYPICAL idiot. NFL needs less of his type of attitude in it - this isn't the NBA.
