Johnson Saga Continues, WR Signed, Bowe on the Field

Herm looks on during Saturday's loss  

Chiefs General Manager Carl Peterson says they’re not even close but, according to other sources, there might be a deal soon between the team and holdout Larry Johnson.  The star running back wants a 28-million-dollar contract extension.  Management has been offering about half that.  The “Kansas City Star” says there’s a good chance that Johnson will have his pads on for this Thursday’s preseason game against the Dolphins.  But failing that, it’s almost a sure thing that he’ll play New Orleans at Arrowhead next week. 

The team also announced that they have signed the Arena League’s top scorer of the season, to a two-year deal.  Twenty-seven-year-old wide receiver Bobby Sippio is coming to Kansas City.  With the Chicago Rush, Sippio always played well against the Brigade.  This won’t be his first experience with the NFLr.  The 6-3, 220-pounder was a Dolphin in 2004, but was cut early in the season.

More good news from the wide out spot, as top pick Dwayne Bowe suited up to practice with the rest of the team at training camp yesterday.  He was on the physically-unable-to-perform list.  He even caught a touchdown pass from Casey Printers.  Coach Herm Edwards says Bowe looks to be in great shape for football, and expects to have him in Thursday night’s game.
