POOR CHAD JOHNSON. Earlier this month he was cut by the Miami Dolphins. And on Thursday, he found out he'd been cut by Madden 13 too.
"That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and have to create yourself . . . " Johnson tweeted to his followers.
Actually, the athlete formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is part of Madden 13. He has just been moved to the free-agent pool.
In a somewhat related story, the Dolphins seem hell-bent on signing a receiver familiar with the arrest process.
Miami released Johnson after he was charged with domestic violence after allegedly headbutting his wife. The Dolphins had signed him in June to replace Brandon Marshall, a talented player with a long list of off-field incidents. They traded Marshall to the Bears in March just days after he was accused of hitting a woman in a New York club. Marshall was not charged in that incident.
