That's not going to get him any more playing time...Wilson: Chiefs' Derrick Johnson sounds off | National Football Post
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson is fed up, and he's not going to take it anymore.
Well, at least he's not going to keep his frustration to himself.
Johnson vented to Kansas City reporters today, getting it off his chest how mad he is that he's not starting and was the subject of trade rumors prior to the NFL deadline Tuesday.
"It sucks," Johnson said. "It kind of sucks to not be starting and not be playing like I should. I should be out there playing. I should be out there starting. I should be out there helping this team win."
Johnson said he has taken his complaints to coach Todd Haley, too.
"Coach knows I want to play," he said. "He knows I disagree with not playing. He knows that."
And Johnson said he avoided watching television because of the trade talks, calling the possibility of being moved to another team as "a possibility that something was going on."
