Jay Glazer (http://www.kffl.com/link/14), of FOXSports.com (http://www.kffl.com/link/189), reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (http://www.kffl.com/team/35/nfl) have left the door open to a return of DE Simeon Rice (http://www.kffl.com/player/1796/nfl), who was just released. However, that does not seem likely to happen. Rice met with the team and they asked him to take a pay cut. After he refused, the team cut ties with him.I also read that it was because he falled his physical....

NFL (http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl) Network, reports Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/nfl) RB Larry Johnson (http://www.kffl.com/player/5896/nfl) will not report to training camp for the Chiefs (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/nfl) when it opens Friday, July 27. He will not participate until he receives a new contract.I don't blame the guy, he's their starting RB he's a beast and they can't afford him not to be there.....
I'm sure they will work something out due to the extra money they have now because of Greens release.

Heard on sirius tha tampa save 7 million against the cap by releasing the on the downside can't stop the run DE :popcorn:

I agree with you cap,,,,,,,,,If anyone deserves to holdout it's Larry Johnson !

I sure will miss Simeon...one of my favorite players!

He did fail his physical...his shoulder keeps popping out but that cap savings has to have had some influence on it. In an interview, he really lashed out and said he hopes he gets on a team that's on our schedule...hope it's not on a team in the South!!

Also agree...the Chiefs need to pay Larry Johnson what he's worth to them and it's a LOT more than they paid him last year.

Simeon has been a beast for years, but the guy is just soo soft on the run. When it comes to rushing the passer, he is a beast, but these days you gotta be able to push the O lineman back, not just get around them.

He gave the NFL 12 years (6 with the Bucs), in his prime like T said, he was a beast (121 career sacks). It is a shame to be let loose like that but it is what it is.
