Would Kansas City trade their Pro Bowl running back? Over the 2005 and 2006 seasons, RB Larry Johnson's production has been spectacular. Two great back-to-back seasons, but Johnson slipped a little bit in 2006 from his fantastic 2005 season. The "slip" only involved a drop from the best running back in the NFL to 2nd best, so at that pace by 2016 he should only be the 10th best RB in the NFL.
However Johnson hit a major milestone in 2006. He passed the 400 carry barrier. Aaron Schatz wrote the book on the Curse of 370:
Maybe Kansas City is doing the smart thing with Johnson at this point. Try and get one more quality season from him before he hits free agency in 2007 and draft his replacement now. But based on what Adam Schefter reported, it doesn't appear they are doing the smart thing:
Luckily for Packers' fans, the Packers have no chance at acquiring such a great running back who is so likely to fall apart physically in the near future.
