Today is was oversleeping.
Now it's oversleeping WITH an altercation.

Earlier in the day, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reported that Bengals receiver Chad Johnsons deactivation for Thursday nights game against the Steelers arose due to some type of altercation that occurred on Wednesday night.
Later, Bengals radio announcer Brad Johansen reported that Johnson had overslept and missed a team meeting.
Now, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that the incident resulted not from oversleeping, but from Johnson leaving a team meeting.
Per Glazer, Johnson showed up at the meeting, but was extremely groggy. When Johnson was slumped in his chair, offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski told Johnson to sit up straight.
Johnson refused. So Bratkowski repeated the instruction.
And Johnson instead stood up straight and left.
Coach Marvin Lewis shouted at Johnson to return, but Johnson ignored him. Lewis chased him down and the two exchanged several heared words. Eventually, Marvin gave Chad the boot.
Its unknown whether further discipline will be imposed. Under the CBA, the maximum possible discipline is a four-game suspension, without pay."

He really wants out of there. Really. Before this year Chad was one of my favorite players. Not anymore. I hope they keep him, and don't let him play.

Keeping him would be a huge waste of salary cap for a player that doesn't want to play and is currently not playing that well anyway.
I'd say, get anything you can get for him, before he gets released from the team. I'm pretty sure he won't resign with the Bengals.

I think there is going to be major reconstructions in both the Ohio franchises... I think Marvin might make it through the offseason.. maybe.. but much of the roster will be overhauled.
In Cleveland.. they are going to pull the pin on the entire group I think.. Savage on down.. they have talent there.. just something is amiss with this group..
Johnson himself... never have been a fan of those that are challenged in the humble and class department.. Dallas, got anymore room for a malcontent?
