Less than 24 hours after he was arrested in an alleged domestic dispute with his wife, Chad Johnson has been released by the Dolphins. The news was first reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.
The Dolphins issued a one-sentence press release Sunday night simply stating, "The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson, the team announced today."
On Saturday night, Johnson was arrested after he allegedly head-butted his wife, Evelyn, when she became upset after reportedly finding a receipt for the purchase of condoms in his car.
The Patriots released the receiver -- then named Chad Ochocinco -- after a disappointing one-year stay in which he totaled 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown. There had been speculation that the Dolphins brought him into camp to be an attraction for HBO's "Hard Knocks," which this season features in the AFC East rival of the Patriots.

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski did not take part in Sunday's light practice in shorts and shells at Patriots training camp. Instead, the star tight end worked out on conditioning bikes and then ran with other injured players on the lower practice field while the team practiced.
Gronkowski was in a baseball cap and sweatpants on a stair-stepping machine before heading down to get cardio work. Coach Bill Belichick did not offer any update following Sunday evening's practice.
In a positive development, inside linebacker Brandon Spikes did return in full uniform and took reps with the first-team defense. He had missed five straight practices and Thursday night's preseason opener against the Saints with an unspecified injury before returning on Sunday.
The Patriots return to the practice field Monday at 1:30 and are scheduled to practice until 4 p.m. as training camp continues outside Gillette Stadium.

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick was tight-lipped about any possible contact with free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress.
"We work out a lot of players," Belichick said. "We just try to know who's available out there. We work and talk to a lot of guys, give them physicals and all that. I'm not going to comment on any of them individually."
ESPN reported Sunday that Burress, who caught the winning touchdown against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, had been in Foxboro for a workout with the Patriots. While Belichick would not specifically identify the wide receiver corps as a spot that needs to improve, he did take a swipe at the offense after its struggles in a 7-6 win Thursday night in the preseason opener against the Saints.
"Pretty much say the same thing about them as the whole rest of the offense, when you have 10 punts and two turnovers, you have a long ways to go," Belichick said....
FOXBORO -- Sporting a heavy black brace on his surgically repaired right knee, Pro Bowl left guard Logan Mankins returned to Patriots practice on Sunday afternoon for a workout in shorts and shells. Mankins played with a torn left ACL in the Super Bowl loss to the Giants.
"I knew I needed to be here as one of the older guys on the line, just to help out the younger guys, lead by example, stuff like that," Mankins said. "My job is to play football, so I'm going to do everything possible to get back on the field as soon as possible."
Mankins was cleared by the Patriots medical staff early Sunday and he was subsequently taken off the PUP list, allowing him to return. Mankins said he didn't realize he had a torn ACL until an MRI after the Super Bowl.
"If I could still run, I figured I could still play," Mankins said Sunday. "I actually hurt my left knee playing left tackle [vs. the Dolphins on...
