[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs and running back Larry Johnson are working on a settlement that could affect his future, Johnson’s agent told The Star on Thursday.
Peter Schaffer, who has represented Johnson for about a year, said in an e-mail that he was working on an appeal of Johnson’s two-week suspension at the same time as he and the Chiefs are discussing a settlement.
“Full bore on both,” Schaffer wrote.
Asked whether that settlement could involve Johnson’s separation from the team, Schaffer wrote: “Not necessarily.”
Schaffer was later reached by phone Thursday night. When asked whether he expects Johnson to play with the Chiefs again, Schaffer said: “Larry Johnson is a member of the Chiefs right now.”
Schaffer wouldn’t reveal details of his discussions with the Chiefs, or what Johnson was seeking in the settlement.
