LJ to visit Oakland
By Bill Williamson
The Raiders will visit with former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Johnson will also visit with Washington.
It is interesting the former Chiefs star is drawing attention from teams with AFC West connections. Washington’s new coach is former Denver coach Mike Shanahan.
Oakland would bring in Johnson to replace Justin Fargas, who was released last week. Johnson likely would be the third option behind Darren McFadden and Michael Bush. Johnson finished last season with the Bengals after he was cut by the Chiefs.
Johnson is 30 and his production has slipped greatly.
