Does anyone else really want to see Tank Johnson here? I would love to see a pair of "Tanks" sittin in there destroying the opposing offensive lines. Johnson is one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL. I understand he has some issues and we have plenty to worry about with the guys already on this team, but how much trouble can you get into in K.C. really? lol I think the reason you don't see more trouble from our players is because of where they live. that's not a knock on the city, it's just a relatively quieter town than Chicago.
The guy WANTS to turn things around. Get him out of that city where he has all his friends, and he MAY staighten up. With all these high priced vets leaving town, it's not like we don't have the cap room. i'm not sure what the exact number is, but the only huge contracts we still have are on our O-line and CBs.
I just think this would solidify what has become a much improved D-line this spring. We've got Jared Allen, John Welbourn, and now Tank Tyler. What's one more "character" guy? Where's the risk? We already have a descent D-line without him, if he flys right, we have an amazing D-line. If he doesn't, the league suspends him without pay and we're back to what we have now.
There's already some tension in the club house with the LJ situation and the Jared Allen temper tantrum, so i don't think signing him will be that big of a distraction.
The biggest reason i DON'T think it'll happen, is because one of his best friends, Lovi Smith, just released the guy. If Lovi gets on the horn and runs the guy down, Herm wont touch him.
A reason why i think he COULD get signed is because they didn't seem too reluctant in wanting to sign Terrell Owens. They drafted Tank Tyler. They allowed Welbourn to come back. I don't see Herm shying away from "character" guys eventhough he seems to advocate strong punishment for poor decisions off the field.
