“The Houston Texans are showing persistent interest in Larry Johnson and it’s a place Larry Johnson would be comfortable and right now they have to be considered the favorites,” La Canfora said on NFL Total Access Tuesday. (Here’s his accompanying tweet.)
He later said, “It seems like at this point something would have to fall apart between the Texans and Larry Johnson for him to go” elsewhere. Washington and New England were mentioned as other possibilities.
The Houston connection is interesting considering a missive from ESPN’s Adam Schefter from a few hours earlier Tuesday: “And now we start eliminating LJ landing spots: No more Houston — Gary Kubiak’s team sticking with its backs,” Schefter wrote.
Not a lot of wiggle room in those reports. The information man on information man violence doesn’t end there.
“Some people spending/wasting time talking about LJ wanting to go to Steelers,” La Canfora writes. “But they have no interest in him. Moot point.”
Watching to see where Larry Johnson will land is proving to be a lot more entertaining than watching Johnson play football. (Unless you love watching 2.7 yards and a cloud of dust.)
UPDATE: Schefter is steadfast. He tells PFT: “Larry Johnson has as much chance of playing for the Texans as I do.”
