yes it is.

LJ needs to get shored up for the future. I am somewhat surprised he has not demanded a new contract and threatend to sit out if he does not get one.

According to my sources, he's signed through 2009.

I thought LJ had 3-4 years left on his contract.

I thought LJ had 3-4 years left on his contract.I'm sure there are some voidable years in his current contract. 1st round rookies simply don't sign 7 year contracts.

Updating previous reports, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the seven-year deal Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson received is worth $8.847 million, including a $3.31 million signing bonus. If certain playing time benchmarks are achieved, Johnson's deal will void down to a five-year, $6.7 million deal. He'll have base salaries of $452,000 (2003), $515,000 (2004), $628,000 (2005), $741,000 (2006), $854,000 (2007), $967,000 (2008) and $1.08 million (2009) and there are workout bonuses of $50,000 each for 2004 through 2009.

So according to this we have him locked up through 2007, which means we will probably be reworking his contract sometime during this 2006 season. I hope we can keep him mad/happy so he continues to want to be a Chief. If DV were still head coach I'd be more worried than with Herm. I think a year under Herm will have LJ in good spirits toward the Chiefs organization. They are off to a very good start with him already being named the starting back.

He's someone who could benefit from that uncapped '08.

The extending the FA period to get a CBA in place should mean alot to the fans....the implications to small market teams are huge.

This is one of many players that could leverage the lack of a CBA.

He will next year, after Priest has officially retired or is no longer on the team. Then he holds all the cards.

He is going to cost a lot of cash to resign.
