My grandmother always told me that the truth will set you free, and in Chad Johnson’s case that definitely true. Since the domestic violence incident with his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada, Chad Johnson had pretty much been mum on commenting on the relationship. But Wednesday, Johnson sat down with James Brown and Chris Collinsworth on Showtime’s Inside the NFL to give his side of the story and take full responsibility of his actions.
Check out the interview…
When asked who’s to blame, Johnson responded…
“I take full responsibility for everything. Always will. Always have. Where do I go from here? I gotta work on Chad. Chad has to work on Chad. Chad has to go deep down inside and figure out where you went wrong. At what point did you lose focus on what’s most important–Especially the game of football. There was a time where, when I touched that field Sunday, you knew what time it was. At some point, I had drifted off track away from that.”
One of my favorite statements was when Chad addressed what he was doing to resolve his issues, he said,
“I’m taking classes. Anger management classes. I’m trying to find out how to channel my anger in situations where I would pop off–how to diffuse those situations.”
There’s a lot more that the interview revels but I applaud Chad for standing up, being a man and taking responsibility for his actions. I hope we’ll see Chad on the football field again soon.
