For some reason I have a feeling Bill Belichick is going to give him a call. Fred Taylor is still recovering from ankle surgery and Maroney isn't exactly a great option either.

I don't get the controversy.

Every dude I know, and certainly in every sports locker room I've ever been in "Don't be a fag", "don't be such a homo" etc. are as common as "We've got to take it one game at a time."

They just wanted to get rid of the dude, and this was as convenient an excuse as any.

I doubt anybody is interested in his 2.7 ypc. This is probably the end of the line for the woman beater.

Yeah....LJ is the perfect example of what a dominant Oline can do for your running game. The chiefs had one of the most dominant offensive lines in the league...a line that helped churn out MVP caliber seasons by Priest Holmes and later Larry Johnson. As soon as the offensive line got old or retired, so did Larry Johnson's rushing skills.

This is why I want Houston to HEAVILY focus on the line this offseason. We need to atleast upgrade 2 of the 3 interior positions. Plus I wouldn't mind dumping the whole zone scheme altogether and actually get some beef up front.

With Slaton's fumbling I would seriously consider this

And I don't think Chris Brown is exactly running any better than LJ

I don't think it hurts to stock up on backs

He's averaging 2.7 yds a carry. The guy has one foot in the glue factory and is a prick. I would call Ron Dyane back before Larry Johnson.

You have got to be kidding me. Why would we want this woman-beating, shit-talking, horrible attitude-having, me-first, 2 yards per carry piece of crap?

While I agree with you

The answer is

LJ can pick up 3rd, 4th and shorts. He doesn't fumble.

It aint gonna happen though.

Default Re: Larry Johnson released!

Have we all forgotten Slaton has SIX fumbles! Thats ridiculous, if he fumbles one more time in a game he should be benched

That would leave us with just Chris Brown and Ryan Moats, they're fine but it wouldn't hurt to have LJ in the mix too

We took a flier on Chris Henry he was awful with Tennessee, LJ has been a quality back just recently

And LJ managed to get 80 yards in a game this year behind basically zero blocking, he hasn't lost as much as people say

Hasn't happened (at least not yet). Even the link in the OP stated a source said he was going to be released.

He also had a real bad leg injury that cost him his quickness, also he was rode hard for a few years and that usually means a fast downfall in the NFL.

Whats the big deal if he's signed for a cheap price? Funny how no one has brought up the Texans passing on signing another certain RB with baggage who seems to be leading the league in rushing right now

LJ can still play but he is a butthead. Frankly a guy like this would make this team an offensive beast that would strike fear in all opponents...but he's a butthead, so it ain't gonna happen if he is indeed released.

If he's released, Texans should sign him. We are weak at RB. If Slaton goes down, we're done. Even though Slaton hasn't done much in the run game, he has a lot more potential than Chris Brown.

Texans should sign him and possible save a pick next year if he pans out and on a side note I dont care about his past, but what he can do for this team.
