Keyshawn cleans out Harbour Island home

Keyshawn Johnson cut more ties with Tampa Bay Tuesday, but he will remain tethered to the Bucs a while longer.

Fresh off a tumultuous week in which he was robbed at gunpoint, served with a restraining order and sued in civil court by a man he admitted threatening, Johnson and ex-wife Shikiri were back to move the last few items out of his recently sold Harbour Island home.

Johnson may not have to wait much longer to move on from the Bucs, either. He said general manager Bruce Allen will meet with his agent, Jerome Stanley, at the Pro Bowl next week in Honolulu to discuss his release.

"I don't care when they release me," Johnson said. "I'm not really concerned about that. The only thing that matters is I'll be playing with another team in September."

As Johnson stood on his balcony while his belongings were packed into moving vans, he said he was videotaped by a WFLA-TV Ch. 8 helicopter hovering above.

"I think it's sickening and I think they should be embarrassed," Johnson said. "I don't see how it's newsworthy that I'm moving things out of house I put up for sale in October. We just want to move on with our lives."

PRO BOWL: Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander will replace the Saints' Deuce McAllister in the Feb. 8 game in Honolulu.

BEARS: Tim Spencer, Ohio State's running backs coach the past 10 seasons, has taken the same position with Chicago.

ARENA FOOTBALL: Storm wide receiver/linebacker David Saunders did not practice Monday or Tuesday because of a hip pointer sustained during Sunday's scrimmage against Orlando. He is expected to return later in the week.

Offensive/defensive lineman Kelvin Kinney returned to practice Monday after missing the scrimmage with a groin strain. Lineman Shawn King, who missed the scrimmage with a similar injury, is expected to return next week.
