Larry Johnson will not visit Raiders
By Bill Williamson
Larry Johnson will not become a Raider.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the former Kansas City standout has signed with Washington. Johnson, who finished last season with the Bengals after being cut by the Chiefs, was supposed to visit Oakland on Sunday.
This isn’t a great loss for Oakland. Johnson, 30, is way past his prime. He wouldn’t have brought Oakland much.
The team wants a third tailback after releasing Justin Fargas. The top free-agent names available are LaDainian Tomlinson and Willie Parker. Parker would be more likely for Oakland than Tomlinson at this point.
