Larry Johnson's Troubles!

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was at one time one of the best running backs in the NFL. He's approaching 30 years of age as a running back and playing on a bad team. Johnson has allowed his frustrations to get the best of him and after making unflattering comments about his head coach and making a gay slur on Twitter. Johnson topped that the next day by issuing another gay slur in the Chief's locker room. All of these rants have cost Johnson a 2 week suspension from the team and $660,000 in salary since he won't be paid by the team.
Johnson would be advised to get control of his emotions. He's at an age where running backs become dinosaurs, and losing $660,000 in salary is serious business. He may want to look at the cautionary tale of Antoine Walker, the NBA player who went through $110 million.
