Larry Johnson RB Ex-Washington Redskins
Larry Johnson blew up onto the scene, after being a 1st round bust playing behind undrafted free agent Priest Holmes, rushing for 666 yards his first 2 seasons in the league, while Priest Holmes rushed for 2,312 yards in those same two seasons (2003 and 2004) but things changed in the next 2 seasons. In 2005 and 2006 Larry Johnson rushed for 3,539 yards in only 25 starts, and stole the hearts of Fantasy Football players all around the league. Things took a steady decline after that though, many believe because of the 416 carries Johnson had in 2006 his legs began to wear out (NFL record for attempts in a season), and since then from 2007 to 2010 he has had only 27 starts and 2,016 yards. He also was cut by the Chiefs, going to the Cincinnati Bengals, and then to the Washington Redskins where he was cut after 2 yards in September. Now, no team has given him a look as a free agent, and he has apparently been considering other career options. Larry Johnson has reportedly been DJ'ing clubs around the DC area and has been trying to become a DJ. DJ LJ was apparently brought up to speed on the 1's and 2's when he didn't care for the music in clubs that he went too, and then he was doing clubs in Las Vegas, and the DC area, including singer Mya's birthday.
Any career would be better than the being a running back who averages 0.4 yards/carry like he did this year with the Washington Redskins.
