Keyshawn Johnson is still a free man today, as the former number one pick back in 1996 is still sitting at home awaiting offers from teams that may have need for a 35-year-old wide out that last season caught four TD’s for the Carolina Panthers. One team in the mix now for Johnson is the Green Bay Packers. The Green Bay Press Gazette reported today that Johnson is on the teams radar. The paper reported that the interest in Johnson is “slight,” according to team Pro Personal Director Reggie McKenzie. “We’ll check him out, I’m sure,” McKenzie said. “I can tell you that if you watch him on tape, the guy can still play. No doubt that he’ll be playing this year.”
The Packers did draft two wide outs in last Saturday’s Draft, but most felt they were the team in the drivers seat when it came to getting former Raider and Viking wide out Randy Moss in a deal. At the last moment on Sunday, the Pats swooped in, picking up Moss and putting them at most of experts lists as the favorite to win the AFC in 2007.
Another team that was suggested to take a look at Johnson was the Titans, but as of right now the team has yet to contact Keyshawn and Jeff Fisher didn’t seem to know what direction the team would take in terms of KJ. “I don’t know that we’re ‘in the running.’ I can understand how it would be convenient but I would say this: Before anything were to take place or to begin, it would make sense for he and I to have a face-to-face sitdown.” Fisher said. “And we have not spoken with him. That’s where it is.”
