Less than one day after being arrested for a domestic battery charge “Ochocinco” is history. The Miami Dolphins are now holding their players to higher standards. They showed how committed they are to those standards on Sunday. Chad Johnson was with the team for less than two months and his Dolphins legacy will be a tarnished one.
Chad Jonson was looking to bounce back from his worst season ever last year. Most teams did not want to touch him due to his past of being egotistical and causing drama with his teammates. The problem for him was not his usual mistake like saying the wrong thing but committing a criminal act. The Dolphins were wise with this decision to cut ties with him and do it now.
The question now is, what is next for Chad Johnson? More than likely no team will want to touch him until his legal issue is over. That could mean a season lost for Johnson. Johnson could face jail time in the near future. This is the worst career decision he could have made and will impact the rest of his life.
