After Chad Johnson was released by the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, I discussed which receivers would step up and take advantage of the open starting receiver spot. Now, it's time to look at which player will step up and take advantage of a different spot Johnson leaves vacant: the star of Hard Knocks.
In the first episode, Johnson had multiple scenes focused solely on him and his antics. They showed clips of him running routes and making impressive catches, but also followed the wideout off the field. He got plenty of solo interview time (bad language) with the camera, but was also followed around his actual life.
One scene showed a discussion between him and his wife whom he allegedly head butted. Part of this uncensored interview (more bad language) was also included in the show, followed by a scene where Philbin approached Johnson and ask him to tone it down.
Johnson will be in some of tonight's second episode, but there are still three more to follow. Here are the top candidates to receive more airtime and steal the show.
