Keyshawn Johnson is the star of a new A&E show in which he starts a new career as an interior designer.

Bill Parcells has a strict no interior designer policy, so this should officially close the books on Keyshawn's playing career. Perhaps he'll have on J-Peezy as a guest star.

ESPN analyst and "free agent" Keyshawn Johnson was at Dolphins practice Wednesday, but reportedly only to visit.

Miami boasts very arguably the worst wide receiver group in the league and Keyshawn could probably help, but it appears he's staying in the booth. Johnson is close with the Dolphins' coaching staff and front office.

ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson told the Miami Herald that he's still "seriously" considering a comeback.

However, the idea wasn't discussed when Keyshawn spoke to Dolphins VP of football operations Bill Parcells last month and it's unknown what type of condition Johnson is in. He'd probably need at least a few weeks of training camp to get in football playing shape. Perhaps something will happen next month, but we wouldn't bet on seeing Keyshawn in pads in 2008.

ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson is still mulling a comeback.

"I'm pretty sure if I wanted to come to Miami, Bill Parcells would say OK," he said. The addition of Ernest Wilford, a similar possession type player who'll block in the run game, makes the need for Johnson less urgent. Keyshawn also probably wouldn't want to go through a full training camp.

If free agent Keyshawn Johnson is to make a comeback, he'll reportedly want to sign a conract as soon as possible.

He reportedly will seek a deal competitive with the going market. Keyshawn could wait to see what free agents Marty Booker and Muhsin Muhammad command, as they're both aging possession receivers in his league.

Keyshawn Johnson told Yahoo! Sports that he is seriously considering a comeback.

"The challenge of helping to turn a team around, to help get it to the next level, that gets my competitive fires burning. I have the itch, and right now I'm trying to decide how strong that itch is," Johnson said. Bill Parcells has reportedly already offered Johnson a spot on the Dolphins, and the Titans and Raiders have also expressed interest in the past.

Dolphins VP of football operations Bill Parcells has reportedly reached out to current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson.

The Tuna reportedly told Keyshawn that if he unretires, he'll have a spot on the Dolphins' roster. Parcells coached Johnson with the Jets from 1997-99 and later in Dallas from 2004-05. The two worked together at ESPN in 2007.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Bucs tried to reach out to Keyshawn Johnson after losing Maurice Stovall for the season.

The talks were reportedly "serious in nature," and Johnson confirmed that the Bucs contacted his agent, but not him personally. Keyshawn says he enjoys his ESPN job, but "is listening" if teams want to bring him out of retirement this offseason. The Dolphins seem very likely to have interest.

The Miami Herald is reporting that Keyshawn Johnson has not ruled out the possibility of a comeback with the Dolphins and close friend, Bill Parcells.

He would take on a mentoring role for the Dolphins young wide receivers if he decided to leave ESPN, but consider this a longshot to happen. He was possibly the slowest receiver in the league when he retired last year, and it will take a lot to lure him away from his studio analyst role.

Keyshawn Johnson has decided to retire rather than join the Tennessee Titans.

He will immediately go to work for ESPN after passing on a two-year deal. It's bad news for Vince Young and a thin Titans offense. Many consider Keyshawn's career a disappointment, but he was a rare highly selected receiver that was a solid starter from day one until retirement. He caught at least 70 passes nine times in his 11-year career, finishing 15th on the all-time list with 814 receptions. They don't elect you to the Hall of Fame for possession receiving and great blocking, though. Just ask Art Monk.

The Titans don't expect to sign Keyshawn Johnson soon, but they remain interested in him.

It seems like they will wait Johnson out because he doesn't have much other interest. "I think any time you have an interest in a player with potential for a signing you'd like to get him as quickly as possible, but I don't think that is going to be the case with Keyshawn," Jeff Fisher said.

The Oakland Tribune's Jerry McDonald doesn't believe the Raiders are likely to pursue free agent Keyshawn Johnson.

The Raiders, already loaded with young wideouts that need to play, are trying to build a team that will be competitive for a long time, not necessarily win now. Witness the selection of JaMarcus Russell over Calvin Johnson.

Keyshawn Johnson will visit the Titans Friday.

Johnson said he wouldn't work for less than $2.5 million Thursday, so it's possible he's pricing himself out of a job. Johnson wants a job for the "next couple of years" but he may not find one like that.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher admitted interest in Keyshawn Johnson Thursday.

"There’s interest on both parties’ behalf," coach Jeff Fisher said. Johnson wouldn't rack up numbers in Tennessee, but he'd add a needed veteran presence for Vince Young.
