Larry Johnson and Willie Parker could both get cut

Use up all your jokes about the Redskins backfield while you can, because the 2005 fantasy football All Stars may get broken up before the season even starts.

We’ve said all offseason that Willie Parker had an uphill battle to make the roster.  Now Jason Reid of the Washington Post writes that it “wouldn’t be shocking” if Larry Johnson and Parker were both cut.  Parker also could possibly pass Johnson with a strong preseason effort this weekend.

Johnson’s biggest issue, other than the fact Herm Edwards broke him years ago, remains in pass protection.  L.J. “performed woefully” in blitz pickup in his extended work against the Ravens Saturday.  (He also rushed eight times for four yards and dropped a pass.)

Reid credits a source that the Redskins have been concerned about their backfield depth even before camp. The team could choose to keep Ryan Torain and Keiland Williams as backups, and possibly look to the waiver wire to fill the backup job behind Clinton Portis.

Parker and Johnson received relatively small signing bonuses totaling $300,000, so cutting them wouldn’t be that painful financially.

    One exhibition game does not make the man, but LJ looked horrible. Don’t like Parker carving up the Jets D Friday night either.
    Skins would be better off in the long run getting younger at RB.

  2. Big Tex says: Aug 24, 2010 12:12 PM

    You mean those of us who told the ‘Skins fans that LJ and Fast Willie were either “washed up” or “broken down” were right once again? What are the odds? First Furrey, then the RBs, can Galloway be far behind? Next in line, Donny “Everybody’s picking on me” Mac!

  3. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Aug 24, 2010 12:14 PM

    johnson has to really show out this next game or game 4 or else he is gone.
    and parker..has he even had a carry yet this preseason? dude is just non-existant.
    CP is impressing me though..which isnt shocking to me but very nice to see.

  4. Mrsteve says: Aug 24, 2010 12:15 PM

    Since Herm Edwards broke him?

  5. dabbflappy says: Aug 24, 2010 12:17 PM

    They’ve already done the job they were hired for.
    That was to frighten Clinton Portis into getting serious.

  6. robert ethen says: Aug 24, 2010 12:19 PM

    “Not As Fast As He Once Was” Willie has been running “uphill” since 2007. If Johnson gets cut, it’ll be the first nice cut he’s been part of for about the same length of time.

  7. da_skinolas says: Aug 24, 2010 12:22 PM

    torain could be a nice backup, but the skins should have kept betts!!

  8. Jack Acid says: Aug 24, 2010 12:22 PM

    Not sure how Parker has fallen so fast but LJ’s best days are well, well behind him.

  9. GobiasINC_1 says: Aug 24, 2010 12:24 PM

    Mrsteve, Edwards ran the ball so many times that Johnson started to break down. If a team ever hires that talker as a football coach ever again, they deserve the losing record that will follow. The guy is a great motivational speaker, but a terrible, terrible football coach.

  10. AlphaQ2 says: Aug 24, 2010 12:29 PM

    Ryan Torain has looked better than both Johnsons and Parker and he is young. I think dabbflappy hit the nail on the head. Portis lost 17 pounds and appears to have his burst back. Johnson and Parker have served their purpose.

    I love it…the Redskins quickly becoming the new Cleveland Browns/Oakland Raiders

  12. LunarPie says: Aug 24, 2010 12:38 PM

    Good, maybe McNabb will be next…
    Hey Shanahan, you’re a retart. The only reason you have rings are T.D. and Elway.

  13. Ocho says: Aug 24, 2010 12:38 PM

    Pls pls pls cut Larry Johnson…I generally dont base a players reg season projections off of a few preseason snaps but what I saw Saturday was possibly the worst performance Ive seen from a player claiming to have lots to prove. He has NOTHING left.

  14. heyguru says: Aug 24, 2010 12:41 PM

    Fast Willie. Slow Larry. Fat Albert. Dead Skins.
    Gotta love this season and it hasn’t even started yet….

  15. Mooch says: Aug 24, 2010 12:42 PM

    And yet, a week ago a skins fan told me he wouldn’t trade anyone in their backfield for Lesean McCoy.
    Would the Skins fan who said that come out and comment on this?

  16. habibfromnewdehli says: Aug 24, 2010 12:42 PM

    Not exactly fair that LJ had to run against Ravens defense, while Portis got the Bills.
    And the blitz pick-up? Really? Their offensive line was horrible last year, it will be about the same this year. Sure, they got that rookie, but they also lost Chris Samuels. If they were counting on the RB to be the answer to their blocking/protection problems… then that’s just sad.

  17. VaBthang4 says: Aug 24, 2010 12:42 PM

    Florio: “other than the fact Herm Edwards broke him years ago”
    Response: Oh please!!
    The Indianapolis Colts Defense broke Larry Johnson in their 2006 playoff game (when the Chiefs did not earn a first down until 3 minutes left in the third quarter).
    ;/

  18. branchbranch says: Aug 24, 2010 12:43 PM

    Please keep some youth on this team. LJ looked horrid…some of the worst RB blocking I’ve ever seen on Saturday. Not one reason to keep him. WP was at best # 3 based on training camp so that can’t be a good sign. CP has actually looked decent…if anything this just means he will get more carries than expected. Drop LJ and WP and keep Torrian and Williams as the backups. I still wonder why Marcus Mason never gets more looks, but maybe he has trouble with blocks as well…and yes I realize he’s not on the current roster. I’m just thinking he performed well in the past so why not bring him in for a look to compete versus what may be the worst RB corp in the NFL.

  19. Slow Joe says: Aug 24, 2010 12:44 PM

    If Torain can stay healthy, he could surprise. Shanahan loved him in the 2008 preseason with the Broncs.

  20. Meldog says: Aug 24, 2010 12:45 PM

    sure glad my fantasy draft has not happened yet.
    LJ is such a dissapointment…..think about the emotional rollercoaster that guy has been on in the past two years. Kind of tragic…

    In Big Tex’s Fantasy world, he has an imaginary friend that’s a Redskins fan who is almost as delusional as he is (homer-wise) and thinks LJ and WP were still in their prime.
    Big Tex. Go eat a “Big D” and leave the football to the fans that live in reality.

  22. KC_Vols says: Aug 24, 2010 12:47 PM

    Herm didn’t break him. He has never been a pass blocker. All Larry did was run to the line of scrimmage and dive forward. We will see Larry with the Raiders next.

  23. dbartdog says: Aug 24, 2010 12:50 PM

    LOL, are you really worried about RB’s with MS running things in DC….be real he’ll have a bunch of no-names rushing for huge yards!

  24. Mangy66 says: Aug 24, 2010 1:00 PM

    I’ve been preaching it from the start. Watch Ryan Torain. He’s not too shabby.
    I didn’t mind the LJ and Parker signings as backups…but after watching the Ravens game, and seeing them “Ole” the blitzes, I wasn’t so happy with them. I guess we’ve also been spoiled with Portis probably being the best pass-blocking RB in the league (especially picking up the blitz).
    Keiland Williams looks alright for a 3rd back…but we need to 86 the thought of him being a kick returner. Those returns were UGLY.
    But, we are kidding ourselves if we think Torain and Williams are adequate backups. Not that there is much out there now.
    We saw the Albert Haynesworth for Michael Clayton (and then some) talk. What about Haynesworth for a RB?
    Would Houston part with Slaton (even though Tate went down for the season)? Doubt it.
    I wish Oakland would part with McFadden (I know that’s a pipe dream), but he would be an interesting fit in this offense with his combination of size and speed.
    If only we had the ammo to deal for one of Carolina’s backs. Panthers fans have it good with those two.

  25. longestlegs says: Aug 24, 2010 1:09 PM

    Skins fans may get on Portis for how he runs, but he’s been one of the most productive backs of the past decade, and dude isn’t even 30 yet. He’s one of the best best blocking backs in the game and in his full seasons has rushed for:
    1,315
    1,1516
    1,262
    and
    1,1487
    The other partial seasons (15 games) he STILL racked up more than 1,000 yards rushing and averaged just over 4 yards a carry. All of this on WOEFUL teams with porous offensive lines (granted, most of this is due to Sellers). Any Washington fan who underappreciates this dude needs his head checked.
    He could hold on to the ball a bit more tightly, have a better burst at the goal line, and have more productive hands but I really feel like that’s nitpicking. He’s no Marshall Faulk or Barry Sanders, but dude is solid, solid, solid.
    Hope he goes to a team that appreciates him next year. Also, hope Betts wins a championship with the Saints this year.

  26. dlmcc0909 says: Aug 24, 2010 1:12 PM

    Larry Johnson should sue Herm Edwards for bodily harm lol. I watched Herm edwards on Mike and Mike this morning, and I didnt have a clue where he was going with half his rambling. In all honesty I think the Redskins just signed Johnson and Parker to motivate Portis. Willie Parker was hideous last year they had to know they werent getting much with him. Larry Johnson is a short yardage backup at this point.

  27. longestlegs says: Aug 24, 2010 1:14 PM

    Torrain does look good. Wish they would have signed Westbrook; at least for camp. See what he has left.

  28. thejudge301 says: Aug 24, 2010 1:17 PM

    Well you cant bring in Marcus Mason because he already plays for the Chargers.

  29. Big Tex says: Aug 24, 2010 1:19 PM

    @Mangy66
    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Your revisionist history where you now claim there were NO Redskins’ fans on this site praising the addition of LJ and Parker is amusing to say the least. I guess your memory just ain’t what it used to be, right?

  30. Buck Stallion says: Aug 24, 2010 1:20 PM

    Properly motivated Portis is OK.
    Everyone but the skins knew that LJ & Parker were done prior to this season. So get rid of both of them.
    They’ll need to draft a back for next season.

  31. Blackbeard says: Aug 24, 2010 1:24 PM

    Rock Cartwright looks pretty good in Oakland…guess he couldn’t pass Shanarat’s condition-ing test. He and Michael Bennett both look better than all three of the Redskin backs.

  32. TheToolofTools says: Aug 24, 2010 1:25 PM

    LJ needs to sack up and be a man.

  33. Brad Miller says: Aug 24, 2010 1:27 PM

    “Over-hype” has been the theme for the Redskins this off-season. They will finish dead last in the NFC BEast this season. Dallas will finish in the 1 spot and the Eagles & Giants will battle it out for #2 & #3.

  34. Chiefs2010 says: Aug 24, 2010 1:27 PM

    Another massive hole on the Redskins roster – RUNNING BACK.
    Good call on keeping old man Portis, how can a professional sports team be so badly mismanaged? The dude has concussions all last year, so you sign two has beens?
    Oh an before people knock the Chiefs, we beat this sorry franchise last year..

  35. Blue Star Kool Aid says: Aug 24, 2010 1:31 PM

    Washington still has a team?
    I thought they folded the franchise due to lack of interest.
    Go Boys!

  36. Mikayla says: Aug 24, 2010 1:34 PM

    I’m lol-ing at some of these comments. The Skins OL will be fine, and Chris Samuels wasn’t the loss people seem to think. He was well past his sell-by date.
    Also, a big part of the pass protection issues was JC hanging on to the ball long enough for me make a beer run. I’m not a big McNabb fan, but he’s got a much quicker release. This alone will help.
    As for those laughing at aging stars, the guy who wrote the book on this is Belichek. He had great success with Corey Dillon, and looks to have a real find in a healthy Fred Taylor. LT looks great so far. Maybe it’s the media who has said when they hit 30 they’re done. Portis will be fine! HTTR.

  37. Hailskinzz says: Aug 24, 2010 1:42 PM

    I’m a die hard fan but this org makes the stupidest decions man we would be a better team if Allen and shanahan didn’t get rid of the players that been here b4 listen to this.
    1. We get rid of Jason Campbell for a 3rd or fourth rd draft pick in ayears to cone, are you f ing serious ge would have been a he’ll of a backup and also learn in a veteran like Mcnabb but we got rid of him for Rex Grossman who I honestly think is one of the worst qbs in NFL history he is GARBAGE. We all know Mcnabb will miss at least 2 games or more and we also get rid of Colt Brennon are you kidding me man that is stupid.
    2. We Get rid of Randle El (yea he’s the worst punt returner in football history) who is a respectable 3rd wideout on a team, and we pick up Joey Galloway. Joey Galloway are you serious? Talk about washed up due to age and slow, that decision mAkes 0 sense at all.
    3. We get rid of Ladell Betts who is a hell of a 2nd string rb and knows hos role, good blocker and hits the hole a lot harder than concussion Portis, not only did we get rid of Betts but also Rock Cartwright who my opinion is also a great backup rb to Portis and not only that but also in my opinion is the best Special teams player in the league.
    4.I’m not done yet. Switching to a 3-4 defense to me also is making no sense to me. Our defense has been the strongest point of our team for years and that’s because of the 4-3 not the 3-4.
    Is this going to be another year where I am going to be pussed off every week because of a loss? I see why in the DMV there is so many people that root for other teams other than the Redskins, well that will not be me because I’m a die hard baby for life. God bless

  38. steelersmichele says: Aug 24, 2010 1:50 PM

    I bet Parker is wishing he would have stayed in Pittsburgh in a “back-up” role now. He should have learned from Randle El.

  39. Patsfan83 says: Aug 24, 2010 2:01 PM

    (You mean those of us who told the ‘Skins fans that LJ and Fast Willie were either “washed up” or “broken down” were right once again?)
    you mean we signed them to 7 year deals worth 100 million dollars!!!! Wow, that’s going to be costly, NOT!!! Cutting them wont kill the Redskins.
    (We get rid of Jason Campbell for a 3rd or fourth rd draft pick in ayears to cone, are you f ing serious ge would have been a he’ll of a backup and also learn in a veteran like Mcnabb but we got rid of him for Rex Grossman who I honestly think is one of the worst qbs in NFL history he is GARBAGE)
    so far, so good as a backup
    .( We get rid of Ladell Betts who is a hell of a 2nd string rb and knows hos role)
    cant stay healthy, i think Ryan Torin will be MUCH better
    (.I’m not done yet. Switching to a 3-4 defense to me also is making no sense to me)
    Haynesworth, is that you?? a 3-4 switch hasnt been complained about by Fletcher, so, if he’s fine with it, so am i.

  41. Big Tex says: Aug 24, 2010 2:22 PM

    Belicheck wrote the book? Really? You might want to go back a few decades. Of course, it is vital that the “aging stars” have at least some gas left in the tank.

    Big Tex…I’ll give a Cowboys fan credit when they deserve it. Just like you should with Redskins fans who deserve it.
    But, every team has those fans that are non-sensical and should be put in their place from time to time. We (Redskins fans) have them too.
    Stop making generalizations based on what the non-sensical say. It puts your “intelligence” in question.

    “…it is the same preseason hype…”
    What hype? The offseason moves have made the team better but hardly anyone is saying we are playoff bound. Personally i think this is a 7 or 8 win team at best. Dumbass point#1
    “…you had gibbs…”
    Gibbs took the team to playoffs 2x winning one game. Which equates to the same # of playoff wins for the Cowpukes in the last 14 years. Dumbass point#2
    “…you had a ton of QB’s…”
    We havent had a pro-bowl caliber qb since Brad Johnson. And the only time we had a “ton” was under the failed Spurrier experiment. Every team has bad coaches. You remember Dave Campo? Another dumbass point. You’re 0-3 buddy…
    …”We bring in this so called second coming of Reggie White…”

    You know, if the Redskins had dumped these guys before the 49ers lost Coffee, then Westbrook (who the Redskins really wanted and could actually use) most likely would have signed with the Redskins. Given the addition of McNabb, the fact that his brother is on the team, and it would allow him to be near his family, the only reason I can think of for Westbrook signing with the 49ers is that the Redskins RB roster was overloaded and confused.

    We’re no more delusional than your November imploding Cowboys. You have the preseason hype, then September and October rolls in, and I admit you guys look like you might do something, then you shoot your load come November.
    Every year is going to be the year, not. Let’s see Chan Gailey’s the man right? Wrong
    I know Dave Campo? Wrong
    Let’s bring in Parcells, now we’re talkin! Wrong!
    Ok, how about Wade? A nice man, but a habitual loser? Nope
    When LaVar retired Aikman and knocked his ass off the field and into the broadcast booth, you had the answer right?
    Randall Cunnigham!!!! No
    Anthony Wright? No
    Quincy (Puff, Puff, Give) Carter? Say No to Drugs
    Ahh, but Jerry had the answer: Ryan Leaf! (ha ha) but No.
    Clint Stoerner – Dude should’ve been working at FedEx.
    Chad Hutchinson? Nope
    Your Cousin Vinny? Negative
    Jerry’s got the Jones’ for failed baseball pitchers for reason, and threw in Drew Henson. Negative again.
    I know: Drew Bledsoe, sorry Charlie.
    Tony Romo? Close, oh so close, but no. A good stop gap though.
    You thought you had the second coming of Neon Dieon, in Pac Man, but No.
    You had Irvin’s replacement in T.O. (actually you did), but Jerry for what ever reason pulled out early. Then there was Roy Williams (both of them), Tank Johnson, Carpenter, Zack Thomas, etc, etc, etc,. Still nothing.
    You won’t win it, unless you get rid of Wade (the good guy that always loses), get rid of Romo and get rid of your owner. Or convince Jimmy Johnson to get off the island and stop playing survivor and coach. Otherwise your meddling owner will never get out of his own way. Your franchise will always be like…well the Cowboys. Living like it’s 1995.

    We still sellout the most seats in the largest outdoor stadium in the NFL, and have the longest waiting list for season tickets, I’m 36 now, should get mine when I’m 42, put my name on the list when I was 28. We have the longest current consecutive sellout in the NFL going back to 1967. (Packer fans, I haven’t forgotten about you, if you didn’t split the games in Milwaukee you’d have us beat and it wouldn’t even be close. Go Pack Go)
    So yeah, Washington still has a team and we’re called the Redskins. See you on September 12th bitches!

    And how many coaches has Danny been through? He’s been through a few QB’s of his own as well. About Wade, how many HC’s have won more games than Wade during this time period that Phillips has coached Dallas? BTW,I’ll save you the research, that number is One. Tank Johnson and Pac Man were both examples of taking a low cost chance on someone with physical talent and questionable decision making ability. Dallas got the Pac Man pick back and Johnson was signed off the street. Easy “risk/reward” calls. Of course as someone has already pointed out, if the ‘Skins swept Dallas every year for the next 11 years, they’d be tied. At least Jerry Jones and Danny Snyder have something in common. Jones played football and Snyder is the size of a football. Jerry earned some rings. Danny????

    (“and how many coaches has Danny been through? He’s been through a few QB’s of his own as well. About Wade, how many HC’s have won more games than Wade during this time period that Phillips has coached Dallas?”)
    Dallas has been through many qbs too!!! Quincy Carter, Drew Henson, Drew Bledsoe, Vinny Testaverde, Tony Romo was finally found. As for the Redskins, Spurrier was an awful coach, Gibbs did good for what he had, Zorn was a BAD coach, Shanahan is a good coach, McNabb isnt elite or great like he was, BUT he’s good enough to make us better than we were with Campbell.

    First of all, I was talking to Boysroll, who brought up the coaching and qb changes that we have gone through. So I had to hold the mirror up to his face since he was throwing rocks in the glasshouse. The fact that Snyder never played football is his excuse, what’s Jerry’s? He had two coaches who won superbowls and fired them both. And sure he’s earned rings, but how many has he earned since Danny owned the Redskins? 0!

    Can I just ask?
    One of the easiest positions to fill is backup RB – you draft power guy, change of pace guy, etc. Role players between rds 3-7. They can’t start, but they can do something to help a tea and maybe they turn into Michael Turner or a real gem down the road.
    So why did the Redksins, who have a declining RB but one who is still capable in Portis, even waste time signing Larry Johnson and Willie Parker?
    It’s the “quick fix” mentality that has killed your franchise.

    Jones fired Landry, Gailey, and Campo. It was time for Landry to go. Jimmy forced his way out. Check Jimmy’s record. What’s his longest stay at any HC job? 5 years. What was his stay in Dallas? 5 years. He saw his chance and forced Jerry’s hand so he could return to Miami and jockey for Shula’s job. If you don’t think the Jimster was obsessed with Shula, then why do you think he hired Don’s worthless kid? Parcells quit. And while Jerry has rings, the only ring Danny has is when his fingers meet his thumb!

    Why do people THINK that Johnson and Parker are signed to HUGE deals??? These guys were signed to see if they had ANYTHING left and if they did, they stay, if they didnt, they are cut. Portis also was on that bubble. Portis is staying, Torin is staying and i think Williams will stay too, Cutting Parker and even Johnson isnt going to kill the Redskins like people are thinking.
