LJ and Brady Quinn have been workin out in AZ for the last week. LJ has been stayin at a hip new hotel called the Valley Ho in Scottsdale. Ran into him tonight and spoke to him for about a half hour about things. Honest to god!! It's on ESPN. Talked to him about signing and he said he wants to be a Chief but wants to be compensated like a top RB in the league and feels like CP is not giving him any respect! He said he feels like he worked harder than any RB in the league last season and he feels like he deserves a little respect!

This is no joke guys! He seems like a very humble guy and was very gracious about speaking with us like it was no big deal! Had a few ****tails and talked to anyone who knew who he was. Not a ton of people. He was very respectful to people that were asking for autographs and photos. I will try and post some pictures that I took during the day. Seems like a well rounded dude and fairly down to earth.

I saw the interview on ESPN last night and he really seemed down to earth about the whole thing. Said he really was missing camp and building chemistry with the o-line. Also said that he has been getting online almost every night looking at travel prices to River Falls. If anything holding out seems like its driving LJ a little stir-crazy.

Did they say he was in Az in the interview? I found out he was there through a friend that works at the hotel.

He seemed to be fairly cordial. It's not like we sat down and had a conversation but he was just standing at the bar with some buddy's and I just came out and told him I was a fan, he said thanks and I just got in a few questions and then left him alone. He didn't seem irritated at the situation.

No I'm not sure. I know there is a place next to the Ice Den where quite a few athletes go to when they are in town but the name escapes me right now. It's an indoor facility.

I've got a great Scottie Pippen story from my trip to Cabo Wabo. I'll share it sometime.

If your phone allows you to email the pictures, please email them to jeremy@chiefscrowd.com. I'll take care of the rest.
