Was anybody here watching the draft in the second round right after the Panthers drafted Dwayne Jarrett? Keyshawn sounded so genuinely excited that they picked him up. He was gushing about how great Jarrett is and how he was going to be a mentor to him. Then they showed Jarrett live via satellite somewhere in New York (I think) and the two men had a nice little conversation and Keyshawn welcomed him to the team. I guess it never crossed his mind that Jarrett was being drafted to REPLACE him. Ouch.
Keyshawn may get an attitude at times, but I can't recall off the top of my head a season when he didn't produce on the field. He hasn't slowed down much with age as of yet, so some team will be lucky to have him.
As for Jarrett, I recall me mocking someone in the college football threads who was asking who was going to be drafted first, Johnson or Jarrett. The kid is a complete ass, and will likely be the next crazy WR that causes more trouble than he's worth. As an added bonus, we found at the combine that he's slow too. What a great combination!
Originally posted by chillPackers might be interested. Favre-to-Johnson would be fun to watch, and possibly a really good fit thanks to Johnson's recent phase of growing up.
Keyshawn Johnson is going to be 35 in July. It's about damn time he started growing up.

It's the fame and fortune of stars that makes baseball and basketball sports of declining interest. Football is more of an "everyman" kind of game, where selfishness is not rewarded but rather frowned upon (sort of).
