Question Larry Johnson Unhappy in K.C.

Heard on The Jungle today that Larry Johnson was unhappy in Kansas City. He said he loved his team but he didn't enjoy his life outside the lines.

I don't know how long he has left on his deal but if he burns that bridge I wonder if he'd be interested in heading back to the Keystone state? I've never heard anything about him having problems with the people of State College but I also don't live anywhere near there.

I understand that his barking to the media is not very Steelers-like, but if there's a way to get him to Pittsburgh isn't it worth a shot? Is the risk/reward ratio good enough? He seems to have a huge upside and his running style would fit right in.

One thing that worries me, though, is his tendency to rough up women. I can't see the Steelers organization looking to kindly on that but if he could quit being a scumbag I don't see how they could pass on the opportunity to get a young guy with some power.

What do you think?

well, i'd love to see him in a steelers jersey, we'd be freakin awesome with carrying the load........and to me i could care less what players do off the field just as long as they are produceing on it, not that beating up on women is good or anything i just could care less what any dude does on his spare time like smoke weed, drive drunk, kill cats for fun....winning is all i care about

Guys, i like having Fast Willie as our premier back. I know it sounds strange cause he's so small and it's not the "Steeler way". But i think once we fix the passing game and get things going, he'll be the perfect homerun hitter we have never seen before. I just hope Cowher stays the course with who we have at QB and RB and get us a top notch WR along with some O-line help this next off-season, we'll be a high scoring machine on O IMO.

Bring on Larry Johnson to the black n gold next year. He's young, strong, big, and hungry. Him and Willie along w/ Duce would make a formidable backfield after Jerome retires.

I saw Johnson play a few games his last year at penn state.
I would love to see him in black and gold...and he could be around a few years.
He has had minimal playing time behind Holmes.....and he should be fresh.
That would be a huge off season signing.......He would suceed in our system

Duce isn't going to be resigned, dude is OLD and a shell of his former self. Bettis will retire, and I'm not sold on W.Parker just yet. Granted the minute he gets stuffed twice in a row Cowher pulls him and he doesn't get another carry until we're down by 7!

RB's need carries even when they're getting stuffed to get into a rhythm. Cowher gives up way too early. Why not challenge your O-LINE and tell them to open some f'n holes! I'd love to see Larry Johnson here over any of the above people!

Agreed. In a way, I think we have too much talent at RB. It is too much of a temptation if Parker gets stuffed, to try out the Bus, then go to Staley. Cowher knows that he could get a good game out of any of them.

Here we go.

I really like Willie, but I think he needs a power back to compliment him. I think Larry and Willie would be an awesome 1-2 punch. With Bettis retiring and Staley being so injury-proned I think it's worth looking into.

Dont rule out Staley not coming back yet. The steelers arent gonna give up too soon on a guy that has as much talent as he does even if he is hurt alot. It wouldnt surprise me at all to see Duce back, ESPECIALLY if Jerome retires next year. Do we really want the fate of our running game in the hands of first year starter in Willie alone ? Whether Larry Johnson gets here or not, if Jerome retires, the Steelers will think long and hard about whether to bring him back or not. He is a veteran, a team player, a good locker room guy, and some one who can mentor young backs.
