I read somewhere that he'll want BIG BUCKS from any team that signs him. That doesn't sound like someone TT would want.
Not only that, but with almost 800 carries in the past 2 years, that's a lot of wear and tear on the body. I don't care how tough someone is, nobody can take abuse like that long-term. I'll be weary, and I'm sure that has entered TT's mind as well as the bucks.
I just read on another forum that this hot-shot has said he only wants to play for a black coach. I wouldn't want that SOB on my team.
I disagree with every post made so far and therefore will not contribute to this thread anymore
Geez.....i can't believe a guy would say that. Are we supposed to feel sorry for the poor "black" millionaire?retiredgrampa said:I just read on another forum that this hot-shot has said he only wants to play for a black coach. I wouldn't want that SOB on my team.
He said that again, or was it some oone going on to re-quote what he said last year??
Last year he went on the air saying he likes or is going to like to play for Herm Edwards cuz he is black...Cuz a white coach has no idea what its like to be a black player
LJ’s Legacy and Growth Youth Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and promoting development through collaborative partnerships. The foundation is making a difference with today’s children by nurturing positive thinking, behavior and attitudes that foster a strong self image.
He became the first player in the NFL to adopt the Junior Player Development (JPD) program. A program seeking to ready middle school-aged children for the rigors of high school football, JPD has now completed a pair of successful seasons locally thanks in part to Johnson’s visits and guidance on the practice field. All JPD participants receive counseling through a life skills/character development curriculum that’s incorporated throughout all on-field activities. Every week, a different life skills message is designated as a theme. Those themes are then addressed through the context of football. Instructors will make connections between life skills as they are applied in football as well as other areas of life, especially school, at home and in the community. Johnson has even sponsored a pair of local youth teams.
A collegiate Penn State Nittany Lion, Johnson appropriately sponsored “LJ’s Young Lions” in both a tee-ball and pee wee football format. In addition to helping finance the equipment and uniforms for these aspiring athletes, he also hosted these children at a Chiefs home game during the 2005 season.
Johnson made a visit to ReStart a center that services homeless men, women, and families with children and provides emergency and transitional shelter and support services. During his visit he not only financed the dinner, but also helped serve the holiday meal for 300 individuals who were calling the organization home that evening. He made it a point to help serve the food so that he could get a true sense of what the meal meant to those involved.
Larry has eight Kansas City, MO schools participating in his 2.7 GPA incentive program. He is also a sponsor for Kappa Alpha Phi Fraternity’s annual Easter Egg Hunt, held at the Chiefs Practice Facility, which allows 1,500 children to attend.
