Ed Johnson

So the player's union is filing a grievance on behalf of Ed Johnson.

"

As for Johnson, he has yet to sign since being released by the Colts after one game this season. Johnson, cut in the second week of the season after being arrested for marijuana possession, was a part-time starter with the Colts as a rookie in 2007 and was expected to be a significant contributor this season.

The union is expected to argue that under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, players can't be released for violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

The DT position just keeps getting more and more interesting..

What is the worst thing that can come from this grievance?  Will the Colts be forced to place him back on the roster..?  Doesn't seem likely, makes you wonder if the Colts could face a penalty of some sort if it is ruled in Johnson's favor.
