06:08 PM ET 06.07 | Terrell Owens sounds like a man who's begun to stare down career mortality. Chad Johnson isn't quite there yet. Johnson is awaiting his court date after violating conditions of his probation in connection with a domestic violence incident last year. His latest troubles further dim his chances of returning to the NFL. "I'm going to be OK," Johnson said on ESPN's "First Take." "I'm OK now, but I put myself in this situation and I have to deal with everything. With life, I'm at peace with everything. I would love to finish my career off the right way. If it happens, I'm not sure. But I would like to." Johnson spent last season out of football after he was released by the Miami Dolphins during training camp. His departure was documented by "Hard Knocks" cameras.

I'm afraid his time is over. Feel bad for him, but as he said, he put himself in this position.

He and TO could do their Batman and Robin routine as a double stripper act at some seedy gay clubs in West Hollywood.

Maybe a name change will make GMs think he's a brand new player?

He had a chance to end his career the right way with the Pats and clubbed it badly! Time to move on with your life's work Chad.

I know T.O. wanted to continue his career because he blew most of his money trying to show off. Who the heck buys 3 condos in Dallas? Only a fool like T.O. Chad Johnson may be in the same situation but had to add on his legal problems which causes him problems with the NFL.
I agree it is time for some of them to move on. Do something after football if you have any money left. I wish I would have had the talent to play in the NFL for even 5 years. Would have used the money wisely and lived a good, comfortable life. Try to be a big showoff and you end up looking the fool. Happens to so many of them.
