LJ makes #3 pick toughest in 2007

There’s a reason I’ve been talking about the #3 pick being the toughest one of all in 2007: Larry Johnson. By now you’ve probably heard about or read the interview Jason Whitlock (who has been hard on Johnson in the past) did with the mercurial runner.

This is a very complicated situation, but the bottom line is a holdout is definitely possible, if not likely at least in terms of the early stages of training camp. Johnson and his agent have said that their interests in getting a new deal is simply “good business” and they are actually correct when they say that; Johnson is grossly underpaid. But there’s just something about this guy that rubs you the wrong way. He rubbed Dick Vermeil the wrong way, that’s for sure, and Vermeil is a guy who cried about Laurence Phillips, of all people.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
