Chad Johnson Is Released From The Dolphins

Well, its happened. Most of us probably suspected it last night as the story developed, but it is now being reported that Chad Johnson has been released by the Miami Dolphins in the wake of his domestic violence charge last night. Jay Glazer broke the news via his twitter.

Its kind of funny that the Dolphins factored off the field issues into their decision to sign Johnson rather than other vets like Terrell Owens and Randy Moss. The news isn’t very shocking. Head coach Joe Philbin had already instructed Johnson to better represent the Dolphins organization on last weeks episode of Hard Knocks. Today during a press conference Philbin had said no decision would be made until he met with Chad.

How ever that meeting went, it ended in the termination of the relationship between Johnson and the Dolphins. It will be interesting to see what wide receiver steps up to claim the spot vacated by the former Pro-bowler. Today During practice the spot was filled by Roberto Wallace.

Hopefully we get a behind the scenes look at the entire incident on Hard Knocks Tuesday night, until then all we can do is speculate and wait for more .
