It’s been quite a week for Chad Johnson. To recap, the NFL star has been released by:
- The Miami Dolphins, who cut Chad on Hard Knocks no less.
- VH1, which sacked Ev & Ocho before it even premiered.
- Evelyn Lozada, who filed for divorce after 41 days of marriage.
An arrest for domestic violence is never good, but was it the nail in the coffin for the 34-year-old “Ochocinco” and his already declining career?
Being charged with domestic violence for head-butting his wife means a serious legal issue hanging over his head as he searches for a new job.
Will an NFL team actually offer him one?
Clubs are increasingly focused on avoiding any individuals who have personal problems or who are distractions to the team, regardless of their talent.
Johnson’s consistently outrageous antics, reality TV career and prolific oversharing on Twitter raised red flags long before last Saturday’s events.
Combined with his inability or unwillingness to learn plays in New England last year, it may all be too much for him to overcome going forward.
What do you think? Is Chad’s career done?
Were the Dolphins smart to cut him loose?
