Chad Johnson Release: Miami Dolphins Options At Wide Receiver

Now that Chad Johnson has been released by Miami, SB Nation's Dolphins blog, The Phinsider, is considering what this development means for the wide receiving corps. The Dolphins have several avenues they could explore, though free agency probably isn't the answer:

There are few options available to Miami in free agency. Plaxico Burress is a good threat inside the twenty, but he has problems trying to create separation. Mike Williams is an option, but he was released by Seattle because he weight about as much as a small lineman. Any team would have to take a long look at Williams' conditioning prior to offering him a contract, but there was rumored interest on behalf of Miami last month for the former Seahawk.

The Dolphins terminated Johnson's contract on Aug. 12.
