When we last saw Chad Johnson, our pass-catching protagonist had turned heel and was being sent out of town after an arrest and a lackluster camp.
That town was Miami — more specifically Miami Dolphins training camp. Not long after Johnson was charged with head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, Johnson was dismissed from the team on primetime TV during an episode of Hard Knocks.
Johnson made his triumphant return to the HBO series in the season finale Tuesday night, and the segment played more like an infomercial for Johnson's on-field services than anything else.
The wideout did admit that he had "[----ed up]," but he also made it known that he's still trying to get back into football.
"Make love to the grass," he says as he gets ready to run routes.
Johnson has always had pretty fantastic physical skills, but his undoing continues to be his off-field antics. In addition to those, it was clear that Johnson wasn't catching on in Joe Philbin's system, which is the same reason he suffered through the worst season of his career last year with the Patriots.
See the interview in the video (with some salty language) below.
The Yankees have dropped into a tie for first place — with the Baltimore Orioles. On Sept. 5.
Amen, Lisa. We need hockey.
