Chad Johnson Vows Return To NFL On 'Hard Knocks' Finale Cameo

Chad Johnson may have been released by the Miami Dolphins, but he insists that his NFL career is not over. The always talkative wide receiver released the following video stating his contrition over the incident that led to his release and insisted that he still had five years left in his career:

Johnson admit that he made mistakes, which led to his release from the Dolphins, but he also admits the need to start over:

"The Dolphins, I let them down," said Johnson during an occasionally profane montage showing the unemployed wide receiver working out on the beach and at the gym. "I messed up. I got to suffer the consequences. I made that bed I need to lay in it. So basically I got to start all over."

Among other information in the video is that Johnson got a tattoo of his soon-to-be ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada.
