Tank Johnson Waived

http://www.chicagobears.com/news/New...?story_id=3549

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.”
He was driving 40 in a 25 and was released after a Slightly Impaired DUI stop.

Yeah, Da Bears are heading to .500 land in a hurry. Good think Lovie redid his contract when he did.

I don't believe someone should be cut from a team, because of something off the field. But he has to understand about racial profiling. I hope the Saints try to get him signed.
