Larry Johnson Wants To Stay

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson wants to continue playing for the team, according to his agent, Peter Schaffer. The Chiefs won a grievance against Johnson when a special master ruled Monday, April 6, that $3.75 million of his salary in 2009 and 2010 was no longer guaranteed. The ruling stated that Johnson forfeited his right to the guaranteed money when he was suspended for a game for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. “He’s excited about the direction the team is going in,” Schaffer said. “What happened today has no bearing on Larry’s desire to play for the Chiefs. Larry Johnson’s entire focus is to prepare for the 2009 season. He’s a member of the Kansas City Chiefs and wants to help them win a Super Bowl. He didn’t even attend the hearing last week. He was actually at the Chiefs’ practice facility when it was going on. He didn’t even ask about it.”
