It appears that the decision to play or not to play is coming soon for former Jets, Buccaneers, Cowboys and Panthers wide out Keyshawn Johnson. The former USC pass catcher sat out the entire 07 season after being let go by the Panthers, and after looking for a job and coming close to signing with the Titans, Johnson took his act from the field to the broadcast booth, working for ESPN.
Now though with former coach Bill Parcells in control in Miami, it appears that the relationship that Johnson has with Parcells may come into play again, as Johnson is throwing around the notion of returning to the field to play for his former coach. One thing that the three-time Pro Bowl receiver says though is that no former offer has been made by the Dolphins and Parcells yet.
Johnson says he’s open to a return, and even more open to playing for a Parcells-led team, even though the man in charge on the sidelines now is not Parcells, but new head coach Tony Sparano. The 35-year-old wide out caught 70 passes for 815 yards and four TD’s in the 06 season with the Panthers, his final year in the league to date. Miami has plenty of cash to spend if Johnson is on their radar, as they are $35 mil under the cap.
