The year 2012 hasn't been kind to wide receiver Chad Johnson. Way back when he was still called "Ochocinco," he caught just one pass in a losing effort in Super Bowl XLVI, and was later released by the New England Patriots. Johnson later signed with the Miami Dolphins but was released on Sunday, just one day after he was arrested on domestic violence charges.
Johnson issued a statement to his own website, the OchoCinco News Network, apologizing for his misconduct and subsequent arrest.
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 will do his best to move forward from this incident as he looks to sign with another NFL team.
