Well that was quick. Miami Dolphins defensive captain was a guest on the Sid Rosenberg show on 640 AM in Miami and had some strong opinions on the teams decision to release wide receiver Chad Johsnon following his arrest for domestic violence on Saturday night.
This can’t be going over well with new head coach Joe Philbin, whose decision it was to cut Johnson. He first major decision to show that he is in charge being questioned by his defensive captain can not make him very happy. At least it should make for an interesting subplot on Hard Knocks.

“You don’t just give up on people, especially when you know their character and you know what they’re all about,” said Dansby, who sat out his second practice in a row Monday with an injury. “Let’s stand behind him. I hate the fact that, you know, he didn’t get that third strike. That’s just me personally.”
“It sucks, bro, to see it go down like it did.”
“It’s going to be an even bigger distraction right now, I think, for the simple fact we let him go,” Dansby said. “For him to be in this situation is unfortunate and is out of character for him. I say, ‘Hey, we need to stand behind him.’ I know the guys in the locker room would. But the organization felt a totally different way about the situation.”
“We’ve seen worse around here. Let’s keep it honest. Over the last decade you’ve seen worse. To not give him another shot, it’s tough.”

They also signed Eric Steinbach, heading into his age 32...

According to Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post, the future of wide receiver Chad Johnson is currently in doubt as a member of the Miami Dolphins.

As you probably already know, Chad Johnson of the Miami Dolphins was arrested on domestic violence charges yesterday. Luckily for him he was able to get in front of a judge early this morning (in some states he would have been in jail until Monday, oh the horror!).

So the Miami Dolphins decided to part ways with wide receiver Chad Johnson on Sunday in the wake of Johnson's arrest stemming from a domestic battery incident involving him and his wife on Saturday night. This was supposed to be the time when we would see a revival of a career that had fallen on hard times last season in New England. Johnson was probably going to be the Dolphins...
Innocent until proven guilty right? That theory does not apply when you bring unwanted attention to your business.
The Miami Dolphins are completely within their rights to cut Chad Johnson because he made a mistake that they do not want affiliated with their team.
The league has reported that the 34-year-old has already cleared out his locker at training camp.
Even if his account...
