Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson Released By The Miami Dolphins

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.

Chad “Uh-Oh Cinco” Johnson Arrested In Miami

On Saturday night Chad Johnson formerly Chad Ocho Cinco was arrested in Miami.  The arrest stemmed from a domestic assault that occurred outside of his south Florida home.  Johnson’s wife Evelyn Lozado alleged she was headbutted by him during an argument.  This is one of the worst things that Johnson could have done to his football career.

Johnson was signed by the Miami Dolphins earlier this summer.  Johnson was ineffective and largely unused last season for the New England Patriots.  He caught only 15 passes in 15 games for the AFC Champion Patriots.  The Dolphins wanted a big name to bring to camp and decided to take a chance on Johnson.  The experiment is already going wrong and the season is still a month away.

Chad Johnson has made a career of being T.O. like with his ego and antics.  Once wearing a Hall Of Fame jacket with is name written on the back of it on the sidelines of a game.   While talented and successful he has a knack for creating controversy and adversely affecting teams.  Johnson was recently married and changed his name back to his birth name from his attention getting Chad Ocho Cinco monicker.  Johnson has always been about getting his name out in the media and being bigger than the team.  He has done it again but this time he could face serious charges and even be released by the one team that wanted to give him an opportunity.  Johnson is only getting older and does not have much time left to be screwing up or alienating himself from his team.

The Dolphins have been in rebuilding mode since Dan Marino retired after the 2000 NFL season.  The team has made a mistake by signing Johnson and would be making an even graver mistake by keeping him.  The Dolphins have struggled and been at the bottom of the AFC East for way to long.  This is an organization that should be on top with such a great legacy and tradition.  They obviously still have a long way to go judging by the Ocho Cinco experiment.  He is made for one thing and one thing only, to destroy a team while making the papers for doing and saying ridiculous things.  Johnson has gone too far this time and its time for the Dolphins to cut ties with the Pro Bowl Wide Receiver.
