Blog Photo - Chad Johnson Promises 'Monster' YearThe man formerly known as Ochocinco, now a member of the Miami Dolphins, is back at it again. Making headlines, causing a stir and bringing to light his arrogance once again. A longtime enthusiast of the city of Miami, Johnson finally got his wish to live there full time when his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had him placed in Miami before HBO's Hard Knocks was set to put the Dolphins under the microscope this year.

Rosenhaus has ties with HBO as a former contributor to the show Arliss and a regular on HBO's Real Sports. There's no doubt his ties with HBO allowed him the opportunity to bring Johnson to Miami. 

"My personality was controlled last year (in New England)," Johnson told the Miami Herald. "You didn't hear me at all last year. Zero. Zilch. When my mouth is running, it forces me to perform. It's never been vindictive. I never got anybody in trouble.

His personality, which most of his fans have become familiar with via his twitter handle, will blend in quite perfectly as he will almost assuredly highlight the popular HBO show set to air August 7th.  His 'personality' is fresh off his Bill Belichick tight-leash and he is now ready to roam free. 

"One of the things I like about being here, that's so refreshing, and is such a weight off my back, is I can be me, whatever that entails. When I can be me, I am loose. Everything just flows for me. Whether it's the style of play, the way I learn."

Who isn't excited to see what Johnson has in store for the NFL this season? Who doesn't want to see a Chad touchdown celebration this year? The NFL needs an outspoken, cocky and egocentric player like Johnson to dominate headlines and spike interest in the game even more so. It will definitely be a Hard Knocks to remember, even if the Dolphins aren't meant to contend.
