Pay Larry Johnson Now
It’s that time of year for another NFL superstar to threaten that he will not report to camp because he wants more money. LJ has said it loud and often recently that his present employer shouldn’t expect to see him when training camp opens up unless they open up the bank vault.
LJ will be paid $1.7 million this season, a slap-in-the-face for a fifth-year player with multiple All-Pros on his resume. Word is that LJ is seeking a contract that falls between the deals given LaDainian Tomlinson ($21 million in guarantees) and Peyton Manning ($35 million in guarantees).
He’s earned the raise with his back to back 1,700+ yard seasons and 40 total touchdowns.
