Exclusive Details

0811_chad_ochocinco_miami_dophinsAdd unemployment to Chad Johnson's list of problems -- the Miami Dolphins have reportedly cut their star wide receiver ... 24 hours after his arrest for domestic violence.

Sources close to the veteran player tell TMZ ... he had a meeting with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin about an hour ago. Must not have gone well -- FOX Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting the team dropped Johnson.

As we previously reported, Johnson was arrested Saturday night and booked for domestic violence ... after allegedly head-butting his wife, "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada.

He spent the night in jail and was released on $2,500 bond today.

So, seriously, since the story isn't "really" done with investigation . . . what if it turns out that SHE really did headbutt him? I mean, really . . . have you seen the way she acts on Basketball Wives? Wouldn't be surprising if that was what actually happened.

Oh hell no.    

Chad is a mess. His ego and arrogance is his worst nightmare. What these football players don't understand is you are replaceable, he is 34 years old, which is old for the football world. These originations don’t have to put up with egotistical prima madonna’s when there are several young football players waiting in line to got a shot to be on a team. Someone got cut because the Dolphins wanted CJ, this maybe CJ downfall but it’s someone else’s blessing.

It's about time someone really suffers for spousal abuse. It makes no difference whether she is a gold digger or not. HE married her and if he wants a divorce it may cost him, but that's the breaks when you make bad choices. Head butting her did not HELP his situation guys, it ended his situation.

Of course the lesson that Mr. Johnson will take away from all of this is not "keep it in you pants" or even "Don't headbutt your wife." No, he is smart enough to learn that this means he should not wear condoms when banging club girls, that way, there will be no receipt to explain.

chile please, you married that nut case; anyboy can see she is bipolar ass hell. Always cryin and talking about how her feeling hurt. She has no control, and it should speak for itself cause her reputation precedes itself. Unfortunately chad, its against the lawto hit back, and you are a athelete that happens to play a rough contact sport...I predict no mercy... You set yourself up homeboy

Pretty obvious he only married that she-male for the reality show paycheck. They make Kim & Kris look classy.

I am from Philadelphia and I am a vegetarian. Several comments have compared Chad and T.O. and Chad and Michael Vick. Michael Vick and Chad Johnson are not the same. Vick harmed dogs, very bad. He served his time and has totally turned his life around. He speaks to groups, particularly inner city kids; he is married. When he speaks he does not use PROFANITY. (one of the things that annoyed the Miami coach about Chad in his interviews) Michael stood beside coach Reid during the coach's recent tragedy. Stores (Dick's Sportwear for example) that were not selling Michael's jersey when he joined Philadelphia are now selling his jersey and making money. I do believe in second chances because WE ALL HAVE HAD TO HAVE A SECOND AND SOMETIMES A THIRD CHANCE AT SOME TIME. However, the person has to change from within. Can Chad do that? Having watched Basketball Wives, Chad did get a woman who bullied others and physically abused her one time best friend, who was only trying to warn her against Chad. Should have listened to your friend, Evelyn.
