BREAKING: Anthony Johnson Released by Los Angeles Wildcats

OLB and team captain, Anthony Johnson has just been released by the Wildcats. Johnson was the face of this defense and fearless leader. He was also all over the Wildcats advertisements, as he and QB Josh Johson had been the face of marketing.

Johnson played his college ball at LSU and has since bounced around NFL teams with appearances in the AAF for the Memphis Express and CFL for the Calgary Stampeders. 

This is truly a shocking move but is not the first shocking move Winston Moss has made this season. Johnson seemed to be the heart and soul of this team. If behind the cameras, Johnson was not fitting with the scheme/coaches/or culture, why did they not just trade him? They most definitely could have gotten something valuable for a player like Johnson.

Wildcat fans: Trust Winston Moss. He has a plan.

More to come.

    Moss can’t even manage a field goal to end the half. You expect us to believe his can hand anything more? Ah, no!

    XFL is rad👌, and spring football is a must. I’d have to say that although what I saw of the Wildcat D wasn’t truly that appealing more to this story should be followed up

    ridiculous move on his part. why would he even do this? obviously lost a good player and role model and could’ve been traded if anything.

      I think it was his comment at the half when he said he was going to knock somebody out

    Lakers and UCLA basketball rule this time of the year. Only idiots would think the Wildcats are NOT going to relocate next year!
