    I doubt Larry Johnson will still be able to move five years from now.

    6 years. $45m $19m guaranteed. He'll be 28 in Nov.

    There is no chance he'll see the contract length anyway. There is even less of no chance with all those carries hes been averaging over the last 2 seasons.

    Sounds to me like a 3 year 35m with the 19m earned over the next 3 years.

    Pure guess on my part. Thoughts?

    we'll have to see how back- or front-loaded it is.

    Yep. Total guess on my end but I tend to believe that it's front loaded. As a benchmark, Edge James made 14m last year. I assume Johnson's is along the lines of the bonus split over 2 years and the salary around 4-5m per for the next 3 years.

    Living in PA I heard how much of a prick he was a Penn State, that being said he has ran with alot of authority and anger one of the best runningbacks in the nfl.
    His situation reminds me similar of CD in Cincy only real offense they have is a one man show who has more wear and tear on his tires than any player near his age should have.
    That being said i'm not selecting him for my fantasy football leauge to many questions about his o line my first pick is gonna be Stephen Jackson.
