There’s no doubt that the future is cloudy for Chiefs running back Larry Johnson. Wednesday the team suspended him flat out for his Twitter comments that included a slander towards gays. The team is getting tired of his antics, and the KC Star today reports that there’s a real chance the team may just release him:
The Chiefs could release Larry Johnson, but not only would they have to pay Johnson the remainder of his 2009 salary — his 2010 salary does not become guaranteed until he makes the opening-week roster next season — but he would be free to sign this season with another team.
Johnson has been a cancer for the Chiefs for sometime, and if you take what took place last year with him and now this incident, it’s time to cut ties and move on to getting someone to run the ball for the future. Johnson has clearly gone from one of the best backs in the league to a simple troublemaker that not’s worth the time.
