Redskins rule out Larry Johnson

The teams first linked to Larry Johnson have slowly started to rule him out.

First, the Texans said no thanks. Now the Redskins have confirmed that they will not be pursuing Johnson.

The lack of interest makes sense; Washington could desperately use some youth at the position, but they already have a capable backup to Clinton Portis in Ladell Betts.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn’t comment on the team’s interest when asked Wednesday, but that’s his philosophy no matter who the prospective free agent is.

“What we’re interested in is the Indianapolis Colts,” Belichick said.

The question now becomes what teams are interested in Johnson. His agent Peter Schaffer told Adam Schefter that he’s “talking with many teams and two you would never guess.”

We’ll see shortly what teams Schaffer’s talking about. Or if he’s bluffing.
