Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is going through a period of transition on and off the field.
On the field, he is being held back from playing. Off the field, Johnson and his agent, Alvin Keels, have divorced.
A listing of player agents at the NFL Players Association website no longer lists Keels as Johnson’s agent. An NFLPA spokesperson confirmed that a change has been made, and had been as of Monday.
At a time when Johnson needs as much support as possible, he has parted ways with his agent. Before Johnson can file for a new agent, he must wait five days under the NFLPA’s mandatory cooling off period. But for now, Johnson has no agent and no chance of playing Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Hope this change is a mark for better things to come from LJ.
