Keyshawn Johnson was mugged at gunpoint Wednesday, robbed of money and jewelry but unhurt, police said. They said the wide
receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was accosted by two men as he was talking on his cell after walking out of a barber shop.
Johnson, a two-time Pro Bowl receiver, was deactivated for the final six games of last season, and the Buccaneers plan to either trade or release him.
He was the first pick in the 1996 draft by the New York Jets, who traded him to Tampa Bay three years ago for two No. 1 draft choices.
