According to a report from the AP.
â€œAll this happened when he got released,â€ Johnson said. â€œHe came in to get some stuff out of his locker and thatâ€™s when he scooped up the bags.â€
After being cut by the Cincinnati Bengals, Johnson came to Detroit to work out for the team and meet with Lions president Matt Millen on Monday. During the meeting, which ended with Johnson agreeing to a free-agent contract, the two Gucci bags that he had received as a Pro Bowl gift were taken from inside the teamâ€™s headquarters.
A message seeking comment was left Wednesday with Bellâ€™s agent, Kennard McGuire.
Johnson met with the Detroit media for the first time Tuesday, and talked about Bell in a positive mannerâ€”saying they had discussed the Lions and that Bell, also a running back, had given him advice on the team and the city.
However, shortly after Johnson praised Bell, team security director Ricky Sandoval showed him footage from the teamâ€™s surveillance system.
Itâ€™s a rather odd story and how fitting that it happened in Detroit. Do you ever hear stories like this coming out of New England or Indianapolis? The Detroit Lions canâ€™t even cut a player properly.
