Chad Ochocino Johnson has officially been dropped from the Miami Dolphins due to his recent arrest for assaulting his wife Evelyn Lozada
Though some sports insiders feel this is a bit unfair to Chad considering he has never been arrested in his 12 year NFL career... I feel, this sends a STRONG message to other players that character matters and bad behavior is not acceptable.
ESPN reports... The decision was a swift one. Johnson left jail Sunday morning and the Dolphins had had enough of this distraction by Sunday evening. Guilt or innocence has not been determined -- but it was clear the Dolphins were not willing to put up with the distraction that would have come with keeping Johnson around the next several weeks. Johnson is a 34-year-old receiver playing on a one-year contract. He already had little room for error.
By cutting Johnson, Miami’s new regime -- led by rookie head coach Joe Philbin -- sends a stern message that character matters. The Dolphins put up with Marshall's issues for years before trading him to the Chicago Bears this offseason. Johnson, who had his first legal run-in at the NFL level, was cut after one transgression.
