Bears Make Three Teams Not Ruling Out Larry Johnson

Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith said his team would take a look at Larry Johnson and has not ruled him out at this point.

"Any player that's available, we look at," said Smith via the Associated Press. "That's been our standard policy throughout. That'll be the case with Larry."

I know it's the standard policy, but if the Bears were using his off-the-field stuff as an automatic no, Smith would have said so.

The Bears are the third team to not rule out making a move with Larry Johnson.  Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said he would take a look at LJ and Redskins head coach Jim Zorn said he would have to have a few conversations about that.

And, as we just noted, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said he thought another team with a higher waiver claim would get LJ before the Pats even had a chance.

Reporting on SportsCenter, Adam Schefter said these six teams could take a gamble on LJ: 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, Patriots, Chargers and Colts.

He argues that LJ could help one of those teams in the stretch run.

The waiver wire claims (if any) should be in around 3:00 PM tomorrow afternoon.
