After a significantly forgettable season with the New England Patriots, Chad Johnson came to the Miami Dolphins a humbled, focused professional football player.

The silver lining in all of this could be the fact that rookie first-round pick Ryan Tannehill now has a decent shot at winning the starting quarterback job in Miami, and that he won't have to deal with Johnson's tired act in the process.
