Tank Johnson was picked up by police in Arizona at 3:30 a.m. Thursday night/Friday morning for being impaired to the slightest degree.?? Keep in mind, this was roughly just 30 hours after the Bears concluded their organized team activities and Lovie Smith implored his players to stay out of trouble over the next month prior to the start of training camp.
Regardless of what I personally think, now the Bears must cut Johnson. Many argued that the Bears organization comprimised their values last winter when they allowed Tank to stay with the team given one last chance. Now, absolutely, they will release him.
It’s unfortunate, because once Tank does clean up his act in the eyes of the NFL, he will be playing successfully for another NFL team that will undoubtedly compromise its values for his production.
