Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR Keyshawn Johnson won't be a Buc for very much longer, but for now he's still a member of the organization. But his stay in Tampa got more tumultuous as he was issued a temporary restraining order for allegedly threatening to kill a man. A permanent restraining order hearing is set for Feb. 6 in Oakland, Calif. According to the Tampa Tribune the restraining order states Johnson "threatened to kill plaintiff and beat him to a pulp.'' It also cites instances which Johnson left messages on an answering machine saying he knows where the man lives and "will get him.''
