At his news conference this morning, Philbin said “It was not reactive, nor was it based on one single incident.” He also stated he didn't think Johnson was a fit for the organization. That's being nice. I applaud Philbin for sticking to what he believes in and holding players to the standards he has set for this team.
Look, it's not like we're losing an all pro wide receiver. The guy is 34 and at the end of his career. There weren't a bunch of teams knocking down his door after the Patriots released him. The Dolphins brought him in, gave him a chance and this is how he repays them.
