I always figured it was a foregone conclusion, but I never expected it to be under these circumstances.

Per the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, Joe Philbin made the decision to let go of Chad Johnson due to his head-butting outburst against wife Evelyn Lozada, and the ownership was behind him 100 %.

Although Chad does not have a long history of criminal offense, after everything the Dolphins went through with Brandon Marshall they were left with no choice but to move on from the diva receiver.  I am, however, looking forward to watching Marshall implode in Chicago.  Moving on…

Johnson’s release won’t cost the Dolphins much money as his contract was based on if he made the week 1 roster.
