Ok, Grandma Ma refers to a different Larry Johnson - the one of UNLV fame. But the Bengals just signed LJ, the former Nittany Lion to a one year deal. The Chiefs released him after he bad-talked his coach and posted some homophobic slurs on twitter. He was about 5 yars away from breaking the Chiefs rushing record. Priest Holmes still has that one. He will join a stable of good runners in the Bengals backfield, including:
Cedric Benson: When he rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown against the Bears a few weeks ago they were still paying him something like $2.5 mil a year. Talk about pouring salt in the wound. The Texas phenom has left his troublesome past behind and has had nothing but success in the Nati.
Brian Leonard: He is a white NFL running back. I repeat, he is a white NFL running back. And he's actually pretty good. He played college ball at Rutgers and the Bengals often use him on 3rd down packages. Maybe unicorns do exist...
Bernard Scott: The division 2 Hiesman Trophy winner last year, Scott's rookie year has been productive. He is the smallest and quickest of the bunch, and he returned a kick 96 yards for a touchdown last week against the Stitsburgh Peelers.
