Kansas City Chiefs cut Larry Johnson

Looks like Larry Johnson won't be getting paid this week afterall: The Kansas City Chiefs cut the disappointing running back. Johnson started a firestorm last week when he used the words "fag" and "faggot" directed at the press and fans. But make no mistake: His release isn't because of that. No team would release a productive player because he used any slur. Note the word "productive." Johnson has become expendable to the team, and his rant against fans, the press and his coach sealed the deal.

Chances are slim you'll see Johnson play another game this season. Looking at the worst rushing teams in the league this season, the only team I could see taking a shot on him is the Oakland Raiders, and that's just because their personnel decision-makers are incompetent.
