The Kansas City Chiefs have released running back Larry Johnson. He was suspended by the team for using a gay slur recently on his Twitter account. He had stated an apology, but the team was tired of his antics and decided to cut ties with him all together.
“I regret my actions. The words were used by me in frustration, and they were not appropriate,” Johnson said about his slur used on his Twitter account. “I did not intend to offend anyone, but that is no excuse for what I said.”
In 7 games this year Johnson had rushed for 358 yards and 0 touchdowns. Last season he ran for 874 yards and five scores.
