Larry Johnson Suspended For Game, Future Murky

October 29, 2009

One game….$213,000.

Running back Larry Johnson, who made two gay slurs within a 24-hour period and has a history of poor behavior both on and off the field, was given what amounts to a one-game suspension last night by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Missing one game check will cost the troubled former Pro Bowler about $213,000.

If that did not hurt Johnson, maybe this will.

Former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer told Sirius NFL Radio this week that with his repeated troublesome behavior, Johnson could have a hard time finding a new job in the NFL:

“Let me ask you this, of the other 31 teams in the National Football League, who in the world is going to bring him into their locker room? Whether they’re losing or, certainly they won’t if they’re winning. But, to me, the guy doesn’t have the skill level to warrant the kind of b.s. that they’re putting up with out there and I would not be surprised to see them run him right out of town.”
