Default Texans not interested in Larry Johnson

Kubiak said they are "going to take a look" at LJ. Called him a good football player. Also, was pretty critical of the current RBs.

this wouldnt be too bad, if he can still play and be effective and clean up his act with a change of scenary it could work. I'd give him a 1-year contract to give it a shot.

Hmm......maybe one of the signs of "turning the corner" is not being afraid to sign a football player who has a sketchy past. Although I don't think Larry Johnson has much ability left, he was a product of a dominant line and we don't have that here, but if he can hold on to the ball he'll instantly be a upgrade.

Larry Johnson is a very short-term solution, if he's even a solution at all. I'm sure he would be better then Brown though.

If he is signed it had better be a one year deal that just goes for the rest of the season. No way do I want to see him here next year. The guy isn't any good, and he's a complete team cancer. I'd like to see him just fade away out of the NFL.

Coach Gary Kubiak indicated at his Monday press conference that the Texans plan to do their due diligence on waived RB Larry Johnson.
Texans fans are pulling for the team to pursue L.J. "We'll go back and take a look at him just like any other player," Kubiak said. Johnson has a 2.7 YPC average for the year, but has lost just one fumble on 132 carries. The Texans continue to be concerned with their running backs' ball security after Ryan Moats lost a fumble at the goal line in Houston's Week 9 loss.

Boy, he must hate the current RBs guts if he is "going to take a look" at that POS.

I'm totally against this move.

They will bring him in for a look, kick the tires, and realize this guy is running on empty with four flats, a squeaky fan belt and a busted carburetor.

It was on the radio. I say sign him. Changing scenery did wonders for cats like Randy Moss and Cedric Benson. Even right here in Houston with Ron Artest. If he clears waivers and you don't have to take on a huge contract, why not give him a 1- or 2-year deal and see if he changes his act? Maybe being around good classy characters like Andre Johnson, Matt Schaub, Gary Kubiak, and Bob McNair will set him straight. It's not like he's Pacman Jones.

Default Re: new Texan RB: Larry Johnson..... maybe.

I have to wonder at what point this organization finally takes the plunge with a high draft pick to get a feature back. This RB-by-committee stuff blows. We need a guy that can consistently get a yard and is capable of hitting the holes while holding on to the ball. It shouldn't be too much to ask. We're not demanding Adrian Peterson.

Cedric Benson only had a couple of years on him, and that's close to if not over the average shelf life of an NFL RB. LJ has played 6 seasons already, which is over the average NFL RB lifespan, not too mention his huge number of carries since he was drafted.

I don't mind us taking a flier and working him out, but I really don't see much coming out of it given his history and character issues.

Kansas City has been picking in the high-end of the draft for years.
Bernard Pollard came from there, and he supposedly sucked.
Bring him in, Rick Smith style (pennies on the dollar), and see
what he has left.

Plus, the coach in Kansas City is an ass. Any player who wants to win
runs the risk of blowing up on that guy. Bernard Pollard blew up on him,
and got released. Larry Johnson did the same thing.

I believe we now have strong leadership in the locker room, and if
he's a problem, his ass will be on the street soon enough. Bring him
in!
