A week before Chad Johnson’s highly publicized arrest for domestic violence this past Saturday, the wide receiver and former reality show star already held the distinction of being one of the NFL’s most polarizing figures
A week ago, football fans and media were debating whether Ochocinco was more likely to begin the season as the Dolphin’s #1 receiver or as one of this year’s more high-profile preseason roster cuts.
And even assuming Johnson made the Dolphins, the debate raged on as to whether Johnson’s outspoken and colorful personality would be compatible with or cancerous towards the Dolphins locker room.
Today, none of those questions matter anymore.

It’s official: the Chad Johnson Era is over in Miami.
Even after an atrocious 2011, most observers never expected that the former Mr. Ochocinco would have more legal name changes as a Dolphin than receptions.

The 34-year old receiver has probably played his last days in the NFL, as the Miami Dolphins have cut him in the wake of – but not necessarily because of – his arrest for domestic assault on his wife, Evelyn Lozada Ochocinco, and their VH1 reality show has also been canceled. Seeing as this...
