Tom Brady trying to explain a play to Chad Johnson
He can change his name to Ochocinco, back to Johnson, and to anything that gets him attention, but Chad Johnson doesn't deserve another shot in the NFL. His domestic violence arrest is despicable and he should face the consequences, but my reasoning has nothing to do with his alleged crime. Johnson hasn't been a viable NFL receiver for over a year now and as his statistics show, at 33, he is on a sharp decline.
Johnson couldn't put up numbers (a paltry 15 receptions) in a pass-heavy offense with one of the greatest quarterbacks to every live in his time in New England so what would make any team want to sign him. What am I talking about, never mind putting up numbers, he couldn't get on the field. Even the wide receiver-needy Miami Dolphins chose to dump him. Granted, it was after his run-in with police but other players have survived domestic violence charges, but it shows how far he has fallen. What it also ...

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- As the Miami Dolphins took the field for practice Sunday, Chad Johnson was getting out of jail.

Johnson was released from jail on 2,500 bond earlier Sunday after his wife accused...
Chad Ochocinco Johnson was released by the Miami Dolphins Sunday after a reported domestic incident involving he and his wife Saturday evening.
I've got two rules in fantasy football - and Chad broke both:
1.) Do not select a player married to anyone from Basketball or Baseball Wives.
2.) Do not select a wide receiver in legal trouble who had less than 16 receptions...
Do the Houston Texans strike you as a desperate kind of franchise? Do Gary Kubiak and Rick Smith seem like they need attention? Ever seen the Texans pull some stunt?
No? Then why would they sign Chad Johnson?
The 34-year-old wide receiver was released by the Miami Dolphins less than a day after he was accused of head-butting his wife and arrested. So he is available and he might...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told the Dennis and Callahan Show on WEEI in Boston vis SportsRadioInterviews.com that he really doesn’t care who’s officiating this season. Whether it’s replacement officials or not, Brady knows he must do his job.

Things have gone from bad to really, really bad for Chad Johnson.
As first reported by Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, the Dolphins released Johnson on Sunday, just one day after he was arrested for allegedly headbutting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.

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. His Dolphins stint lasted two months and a day, and consisted largely of a sideshow. In his one preseason game he produced nothing but a key drop on third down that serves...
It’s pretty safe to say that things aren’t going too well for Chad Johnson right now. 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...
According to the NFL Network via Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, the New England Patriots will be giving free agent offensive lineman Chad Clifton a physical this week.

After one preseason game, the Browns now know what kinds of things they need to work on as the regular season approaches. What they also now know is, some things may be out of their control to work on.
Take, for instance, the curious case of Mohammad Massoquoi. Massoquoi took one hit in last Friday’s game, and promptly was removed from the game for precautionary reasons related...
The NFL has long been a copycat league, and after watching the New York Giants trot out a star studded defensive line and smack around Tom Brady for the second time in five seasons, who could blame Buffalo’s General Manager Buddy Nix for trying to mold his team in their image. We all know about the personnel upgrades the Bills have made during the off-season, but catering your...
Move over Patriots, there may be Super Bowl competition in a place where one wouldn’t have thought–Arrowhead. Ok, that was obviously hyperbole, but the fact remains that the Kansas City Chiefs could very well join the Patriots as favorites for the AFC conference title. I’ll admit it, initially I was skeptical too then after hearing whispers that the Chiefs were more than...
