And indeed the Dolphins cut Larry Johnson

Well, that didn't take long ...

As I suggested in the previous post, Larry Johnson has been released by the Miami Dolphins. The story was first reported by my 640-Sports radio colleague Andy Slater, whose show is on noon to 3 p.m. daily. Slater and Johnson are close.

The writing for this was on the wall, Book of Daniel style, when rookie Daniel Thomas had a breakout game on Sunday against Houston. Thomas rushed for 107 yards on 18 carries. That was enough to make the team comfortable with the running back corps.

And so the experiment that was Larry Johnson ends after one carry for 2 yards.

It is obvious if the Dolphins are subtracting a player from the roster, they will also add.

They've been looking at free safety help. They also might consider adding a corner because of Vontae Davis and his inability to finish games. Davis is working through a hamstring injury this week. Defensive line, where Tony McDaniel is out of the lineup with a hand injury, is also a possibility.
