Now that we all know what the outcome was in the grievance case in which he lost, Johnson has 30 days to file an appeal. He would still receive his full 2009 salary of $4.55 million if he plays the season for the Chiefs. If he’s released before the start of the regular season, the Chiefs are no longer bound to pay him the $3.5 million.
He still isn't out of the woods concerning the assaults in which he plead guilty of and received parole. NFL Commissioner Goodell said he would revisit the issue after the cases were completed. The case on Larry Johnson is now over, so we will have to wait and see what the Commisioner has to say about all of this and if further sanctions are warranted against Johnson. Johnson could possibly have a suspension coming his way on top of his loosing the grievance claim.
Larry Johnson on December 16, 2008 also filed a counter suit on one of the victims of his assault, but I have heard nothing about that lawsuit. I assume that it has been dropped by Larry Johnson.
