Former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is currently unemployed, but he’s trying to work his way back into the league after being released by the Washington Redskins. According to Jason La Canfora, Johnson worked out for a team that will be visiting Kansas City later in the season.
The Tennessee Titans worked out Larry Johnson Tuesday and could sign the veteran running back later tonight, according to a league source.
Johnson would be seen as a big back to complement Chris Johnson, a role that LenDale White once held.
A two-time Pro Bowl selection with the Kansas City Chiefs, Larry Johnson was released by Washington early this season after receiving limited carries in just two games. He rushed for more than 1,700 yards during 2005 and 2006 seasons.
Wanna get some extra juice in the building when the Titans visit Arrowhead week 16? If LJ is running out onto the field with the Titans, there’s no doubt he will get a, um, interesting welcome from the Chiefs faithful.
Amazing that the Titans whiffed on Legarrette Blount, who looks like a keeper for the Bucs, but is now working out an older, washed up back to try and help out Chris Johnson.
