Dolphins issue statement in response to Johnson arrest

The Dolphins have issued a statement in response to the arrest of receiver Chad Johnson for domestic violence.

“We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all the relevant information,” team spokesman Harvey Greene told PFT via email.

It’s predictable, but nevertheless appropriate.  It’s early in the process.  It wouldn’t be prudent for the Dolphins to say or do anything more at this point.

Still, the Dolphins have the resources to gather all the relevant information quickly — and they should.  They also should bring Johnson in for a meeting (which presumably will occur without the Hard Knocks cameras running) to get his version of the events.

And if there’s anything he says that doesn’t completely mesh with the objective facts or in any way raises reasonable suspicion that he’s being less than truthful, the Dolphins need to be ready to move on.

    Why do teams or the media even release these messages, diffrent team , same wording everytime.

    I have always respected Chad because he’s was a flashy guy with no off the field issues. That has changed. If its true…..lock him up.

    And, cue The Late, Great “Dandy” Don Meredith…”Turn off the lights, the party’s over.”

    Can’t wait to see how Hard Knocks handles this situation

    Sad day for professional football. Chad’s my boy and seeing him finally have an off the field issue erases the little credibility he had.

    Just to be on the safe side, the Dolphins asked Chad if he was wearing a raggedy, white, tank top at the time of the incident.

    DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!

    He may have just shot himself in the foot or ass. Either way, his future in the NFL is now in serious jeopardy. He will no doubt get a suspension. That is unless he gets outright CUT.

    Turn out the lights, I’m afraid the party may be over for Chad whoever he is nowadays.

    Chad you have let Soulman45 down but I wish you well.

    Maybe she reminded him that any true Hall Of Famer wouldn’t be caught dead putting on a fake “Future H.O.F. 20??” jacket on the sidelines. That’s worth a beating from a “professional” athlete…

    “Child, no thank you! “

    Talk about presumed guilty. If she went nuts on him in the car after finding the receipt. It’s entirely plausible that their noggins collided while she went ape$hit

  22. brianjoates says: Aug 12, 2012 2:01 AM

    Hard Knocks should cover this, this is what Steve Ross deserves by once again trying to cut corners in building a franchise.

  23. garrygates says: Aug 12, 2012 2:16 AM

    Chad’s NFL future is nowhere close to being in jeopardy. Allow me to drop a few names….

    Ben Roethlisberger.
    Randy McMichael.
    Pacman Jones.
    Jason Kidd.
    Manny Ramirez.
    Ron ‘Metta World Peace’ Artest.

    …and the list goes on.

    Chad Johnson’s NFL career is far from over, no matter if the Dolphins keep him around or not.

  24. chitownbullet says: Aug 12, 2012 2:22 AM

    An Ocho nono, pay for your rain coats with cash and get rid of the receipt, he was never particularly bright.
