Bears say goodbye to troubled defensive tackle
By Larry Mayer


LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Bears stood by and supported Tank Johnson throughout a series of transgressions, but violating the club’s no-tolerance policy cost him his job.

The Bears on Monday waived the troubled defensive tackle, who was pulled over and arrested by police in Arizona at 3:30 a.m. Friday.

“We are upset and embarrassed by Tank’s actions last week,” said general manager Jerry Angelo. “He compromised the credibility of our organization. We made it clear to him that he had no room for error. Our goal was to help someone through a difficult period in his life, but the effort needs to come from both sides. It didn’t, and we have decided to move on.”

Johnson was released from Cook County Jail May 13 after serving 60 days for a probation violation stemming from a gun charge. On June 3, he was suspended by the NFL without pay for the first eight games of the regular season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

While Johnson was in jail, he was visited by several members of the Bears organization including Angelo, coach Lovie Smith, chairman of the board Michael McCaskey and several teammates.

“A lot of people within our organization gave extra time and energy to support Tank: players, coaches and our front office,” Smith said. “We did our best to establish an environment for him to move forward. Ultimately, Tank needed to live up to his side of the deal.”
Honestly, I'm suprised players aren't being released more often for fucking up. It would save the bengals a lot of trouble cutting down their roster. The Chargers fired Kiel after they benched his ass for smuggling cough syrup. And well, Foley was released after he got shot by a cop. But seriously, there are a lot of players that get away with a lot of stuff before they're cut.

Are the Bears in a little bit of trouble?..Assuming Briggs doesn't play like he says he will..I mean...It's not like the offense they have they can pick up any Defensive slack..Unless Rexy steps it up big time. Good thing they play in probably the worst division in football..And thats hard for me to admit considering how much of a Packer fan I am.

He deserved to get cut...I think any player who gets arrested should be cut, the NFL is at least doing better now, but it's riduculous when these rich NFL players feel as if they're above the law.

Maybe the Lions will cut Shaun Rodgers and the two of them can go tear up offenses in Canada.

Good move Chicago. Take out the trash.

Looking at it that way the Lions should seriously think about cutting Rodgers.

Ontario has been shipping their garbage to Michigan for long enough. Canada, here is some of OUR trash!

You can send them here, but no one will care.

Even Canada knows the CFL sucks.

The rules in the CFL are so gay.

3 downs?

12 players on each side of the ball?

Getting a point for missing the feild goal?

The CFL could be half decent if they played NFL rules. Thats the only thing from keeping the league down. But when you're playing with 3 downs it cripples the offense from doing anything. You can't run the ball ever. Thats why it looked like Ricky Williams sucked in Toronto. So you end up throwing all the time. It seems like every time i've tried to watch it they'd throw the ball twice and then punt it. BORING.

Their DT depth is a concern outside of Tommie Harris. Alphonso Boone and Ian Scott left as free agents.

Pillaging just for fun
He'll knock you 'round and upside down
And laugh when he's conquered and won.

True. And isn't the CFL like 110 yards or something like that too?
