Redskins release RB Larry Johnson

The Washington Redskins have released veteran RB Larry Johnson,

a source confirmed.

Johnson signed a three-year, $3.5 million contract with

Washington back in March. The deal also included up to $6.75

million in incentives. His contract did not include a signing


Johnson’s release leaves the Redskins with just two

running backs on their 53-man roster. The team worked out

free-agent RB Chad Simpson on Tuesday, so it’s possible that

the team signs him to replace Johnson.
