Chad Johnson was caught on video begging to try to keep his job with The Miami Dolphins. The whole embarrassing exchange was caught on video on the show “Hard Knocks,” as Chad was having a meeting with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin.
The video aired last night and showed Chad looking at his coach humbly, like a little puppy being led to slaughter. In spite of his begging, the coach still let him go.
“Coach, I’ve never been in trouble before … ever,” were the words that were uttered to Johnson. But according to TMZ, Johnson had been arrested in 2000 for domestic violence after he slapped his girlfriend.
Chad has been in the news a lot lately after being arrested after his fight with new wife, Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn claims that Chad head-butted her, and he says that she head-butted him. Since then, Chad has lost his job, and the couple also lost their new VH1 reality series.
Chad is running into the same wall that a lot of arrogant athletes run into. It’s the one where you’re an old guy with a ton of risk and very little upside, leading you to be put to the side. Maybe all those years when Chad was cheesing for the cameras and acting like a complete ass, he could have been saving his money and preparing for a life after football.
