In other news, a league source tells Warpaint Illustrated.com that the New York Jets have shown some "lukewarm interest" in Larry Johnson, but his recent incident that was reported in the Kansas City Star this morning, where Johnson allegedly pushed a young woman in a bar incident, could impede any trade. However, the Chiefs are aggressively shopping Johnson.

QUOTE
Kansas City RB Larry Johnson to the N.Y. Jets for a second-round draft pick that could escalate into a No. 1 based on performance and the team's success

Why it works for Kansas City: Johnson, 28, already has an awful lot of wear and tear on his body and the Chiefs now have a lot invested in him financially. Here is a news flash: Kansas City is not going to win the Super Bowl this year or next season. So go with Jamaal Charles and Kolby Smith for the remainder of his season and maybe next year. Meanwhile, use the additional draft picks and cap space to revamp their roster in much the same way as Miami did when Bill Parcells arrived. Running back is the easiest position to plug in and it should be the last piece of their huge rebuilding project, not the first.

Why it works for New York: Thomas Jones is a good back, but I'm not sure he's a true No. 1 any more. Imagine adding Johnson to this mix with Jones and Leon Washington spelling him to keep him hungry and fresh. No team has taken more of a win-now approach to their roster and this could put the Jets over the top. Giving up a second-round pick that could turn into a first-rounder based on production and the Jets' success could make sense.

I dont know but aren't the saints in the same boat as far as a second round pick with vilma (if reaches every single one of his incentives) and shockey? I am sure there is a way around it. But since the deal line is over, there will be no LJ. Honestly though, despite the way he has been regarded by the media...I would of loved to have him as the running game is the only thing holding our offense back from being one of the top guns in the NFL. even though it is worlds away, I hope we go after a stud running back in free agency or draft a stud. I am sick of bum jones. The guy is a 1000-1000 running back who does everything ok but nothing great. I want a guy that has the potential to have a 200 yard game and rush for 1500-1600 yards.

i'm against it. the only way we'd be a win now team is if favre only plays this season. none of our starters are going to be gone next year. save the pick and get somebody in the draft.

Where are they getting the cap room, and where are they getting the draft picks?

Thats a quote from ESPN on what moves SHOULD be done, not what moves might happen. Anyways the Trade deadline passed, we aren't trading for Larry Johnson.

Herman Edwards has a track record of running RBs into the ground. I'm not sure LJ has that much left in the tank anymore after the last 3 seasons of god knows how many tackles. To me, he's kinda like Jamal Lewis now.

I agree that we need a star RB, just not sure that LJ is that kind of player anymore.

We should be drafting a RB high next draft, a lot of JRs are going to be entering the draft early, as the NFL is going to put a rookie cap soon so they are going to try and get in when there isn't one so they can make crazy money. Thats what the word around the league is.
