Chad Johnson Releases Statement, NFL Watching His Twitter Feed

Chad Johnson has released his first official statement since being arrested last weekend for allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada,  and being cut from the Miami Dolphins. (A segment that was aired as part of HBO’s Hard Knocks TV series)

Johnson took to his ‘OCNN’ blog to write;

“I would like to apologize to everyone for the recent events that have occurred.  I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies.  I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life.”

Johnson is able to sign with another team should they be interested, but a source close to the NFL is reporting that teams and the league are going to be closely monitoring his Twitter feed.

The athlete has been very outspoken on Twitter since first creating his account, and has finally returned to the site for the first time since his arrest, slowly posting tweets filled with careful and considerate content.

The source claimed,

“Teams are very focused on avoiding any type of individuals who have problems in their personal life. The league and team owners are very cognoscente of any players who are overly active on social media. God knows, Chad lived his life on Twitter it seems!

“Players such as Chad — this is a message to everyone in the league along with college players — it is better to walk quietly and carry a big stick. Certainly guys who are able to understand, but many like Chad, push the limits of social media.”

Should an NFL team sign Chad Johnson, or is it too big a risk?

    No don’t give Chad Johnson another chance. It’s good they are sending a message to these athletes who think they are above the law. There are rules both on and off the field. Domestic violence is wrong and there are consequences. He’s only sorry because he got caught because she reported it. He’s lost his wife, job, tv show, endorsements and his self-respect. If his wife had gone back without a word it would be their “dirty little secret” that he is a “WIFE BEATER!”

      He also was found guilty of domestic violence during his college years. this is his 2nd offense and he was also beating his wife before they were officially married.

    I don’t know Chads wife. But i hear she has been violent to other women on her reality show. I also believe the word of God, and if you read the word there is a passage and it goes like this. “GALATIANS 6~~verse 7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”.~~She sows seeds of violence so that’s her return on her investment…If you have a problem with that tell the lord he is wrong..
    Chad is immature and like T.O when you are really good on the football field teams will put up with your mess. But when your 34 playing with 23 year olds and your skills are clearly diminished teams will cut your childish ass as fast as you can Tweet your next foolish statement.
