The move comes after Johnson belittled Coach Todd Haley in a Twitter meltdown where he called fans "fag", "faggot" and "Christopher Street boy", in addition to using gay slurs with reporters. Johnson was fined a $315,000 penalty for the incident. New reports indicate the NFL suggested no suspension and only a $10,000 penalty .
The two-time Pro Bowler Johnson was second on the team's all-time rushing list with 6,090 yards. After several violent episodes with women, numerous run-ins with Chiefs management and the gay baiting Twitter rant, more than 10,000 Kansas City fans petitioned the team not to allow Johnson to gain the 75 yards needed break the team's all-time rushing record. The fans and decency won. Maybe Larry Johnson can ask Tim Hardaway for career advice?
