Chad Johnson Profile: Gone With the Wind?

The wind blows strong in the preseason of the NFL, and it may have blown a bit too hard for some players that are trying to revive a failing career. The Chad Johnson profile took a huge hit yesterday when The Miami Dolphins decided to cut ties with the aging receiver.

What happened?

Chad had signed a 1 year deal with Miami in June for a league minimum in hopes of returning to his glory years of being an outstanding player, but with diminishing skills and a rough round of off field distractions it seems Miami has had enough and released him yesterday. This comes as a huge blow to Mr. Johnson as he also lost out on two reality shows already in production with VH1 when he supposedly head butted his new wife Evelyn Lozada as they were riding in their car. They were married in front of the reality cameras last month and his arrest this month for spousal abuse did not sit well with producers.

Not a good fit!

All the hype and distractions proved too much for Miami to deal with. Coach Joe Philbin stated that he just did not think it was a good fit from the start, and used this as an excuse to cut the player.One has to wonder why Miami signed him to begin with. The two had words about Chads profanity during a press conference related to the show Hard Knocks which featured Miami this summer, and while most of that was staged, it still played a part in his release.

Whats really going on?

This writers theory is simple. Here is a receiver who only caught 14 passes last year, when his fellow receiver caught 16 in one game Hi numbers just are not there anymore, and this is a team that needs to start over and start right away. the future is now for Miami with an 8th round rookie quarterback that needs playing time and a young group of players that need to bond. His distractions just will not work in this kind of a situation, thus, Chad had to go.

What now for Chad Johnson?

He will have to wait for his legal issues to be resolved, then wait to see what if any action might be taken by the league. If all this comes to pass and he is cleared to go, then his future will rely on who needs an experienced receiver once the season gets under way. Is he finished in the NFL? Probably not. Some team will be in need of his services at some point this year, but he sure made some bad choices that cost him dearly this preseason, and this will be hard to overcome. He is one of the most followed athletes on Twitter, so he has a fan base for sure, which is a draw by itself.

We have a man who has problems dealing with anger and issues, we sometimes ask ourselves why he could not walk away, but when dealing with anger, this has a lot to do with how wise the individual is, these are problems that are not solved easily, that is why the bible offers us a guide on how to deal with these weakness.

Chad used to be one of the most talented receivers in the NFL. He could separate from opposing cornerbacks better than almost any other receiver. When the skills start to fade quickly sometimes the big stars lash out for attention because they can't get it any more in their playing careers. A big mistake for sure. Good article Shawn

Ocho, Ocho, Ocho... I think Mr. Johnson's career is coming to an end. Should be an interesting year ahead with Randy Moss, Ocho and Terrel Owens still playing. See if these old guys still have what it takes.
