08:02 AM ET 08.29 | HBO's Hard Knocks may have some fireworks in store. More than a few Dolphins players privately admit that they have grown either unhappy with or confused by the team's general direction over the past month. Their growing frustration bubbled over when well-liked veterans Chad Johnson and Vontae Davis were shown the door. Good news for any locker room malcontents: You might soon get your own change of scenery. ... Of the 53 players who will make up Miami's Week 1 roster, a league source estimates as many as 10 are currently free agents or the property of another franchise. That means nearly 20 percent of the team could be brand new. ... One source familiar with the franchise's decision-making expects to see some "crazy things" transpire the next few weeks.

Chad Ochocinco Johnson was one of those "crazy things." He may have been a "well-liked veteran," but he's also a goofball who adds little value to a football team.

This team has a direction? Are they using a Jack Sparrow compass? HA!

It is fitting that Spam was the first post for this T&R...

I think what this article is saying is "We're going Dumpster Diving this week to see what we can come up with."

This could be the most boring team in league history. In honor of that, I will eat cauliflower, mashed pototoes and rice today.

I thought this was how they came up with Chad Johnson.

Is that the South Beach Diet?

Yeah. Catch And Release.

What do they have to lose?

Only ratings on HBO at this point.

None and done: the smell of dead fish in the morning.

At least the Jets aren't boring.

Especially when you wait until the start of the season to embark on that journey

At least everybody 'KNOWS' the Dolphins will be bad. I can't wait to see Mark Sanchez throw 2 pics in week one and then Jets tumble into disarray. Hooray for schadenfreude!

Tumble into disarray? You mean they're not in disarray already? We're a week before the regular season, they don't really know who their quarterback is going to be and they're swapping out parts of their offensive line.

How much further can they tumble?

Please tell me. This is hilarious.
