That Larry Johnson holdout suddenly doesn't seem like such a good idea anymore, does it?

ESPN - Holmes says he'll report to Chiefs training camp


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Three-time Pro Bowl running back Priest Holmes will report to the Kansas City Chiefs' camp Saturday in a surprise development that comes 21 months after he was knocked out of football by a devastating hit.


If Priest Holmes can come back at even a fraction of what he was, then this is huge for the Chiefs. The concerns of Herm Edwards overworking Johnson can all go out the window. And if Johnson wants to keep holding out (though I don't see what leverage he'd have left), I'm sure Holmes has at least another 1,000-yard, 20 TD season in him.

      Seriously? 1,000yds I could just about buy, but 20TD's?

      That's pretty high expectations for a 34 year old that hasn't achieved either feat since 2003 and is coming of 18 months without playing.

      If he can get back fit and healthy a (very) good season would be to spell him with Bennett and hope he can replicate what Dillon did for the Pats last year.

      Whether that'll be good enough to suport a questionable passing game is another matter.

Guys, He was a great back and terrific, classy guy, but remember how tore up he was. I hope he comes back as a strong third down back or such but the chances may be slim, Maybe he is just sticking it to Larry Johnson who I don't think he likes or respects much.

All that said, it would be agreat comeback if he could do it.

Well, all the talk about him making the team as a defensive lineman, but really, with his speed and his size, if he can show a nose for the ball, special teams may be his ticket to the NFL THIS season.
