Colts cut Ed Johnson, again

A league source tells us that the Indianapolis Colts have parted ways with defensive tackle Ed Johnson.

Johnson signed with the team as an undrafted rookie in 2007, and he started every game.  In 2008, however, he was abruptly cut after only one game, following an arrest for marijuana possession.

No one else signed him during the 2008 season, and the Colts opted to give him another chance, re-signing him in May 2009.

He was suspended by the league for the first game of the 2009 season, and he has started all four games since returning to the team.

The reason for the decision to part ways with Johnson the second time isn’t known.
