Chad Johnson FIRED from Miami Dolphins after headbutting wife
As legal and marital woes mount against NFL star Chad Johnson, he now has nowhere to play football.
Johnson signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins – worth just under $1million – in June to revive his career after he was released by the New England Patriots.
But the Dolphins have now cut ties with the wide receiver, after team officials met with him following his release from jail for allegedly head-butting his wife of just one month.
Johnson allegedly attacked his wife, Evelyn Lozada, during an argument outside their Miami home after she confronted him about a condom receipt she found in their car’s trunk
The team announced via the team's website and Twitter late Sunday that they terminated Johnson's contract.
He was released from Broward County jail at 1pm on $2,500 bond after appearing in court earlier Sunday morning, where he was charged with battery and domestic violence.
Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, said a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting Lozada.
