Chad Johnson has been absolutely silent since his arrest on Saturday for domestic violence against his wife but made a brief statement a short time ago.

Robert Littal via BlackSportsOnline released that statement to the public.

“I am going to let the legal process run its course. I wish Evelyn nothing but the best, I have no negative words to say about her, the only thing I can say is I love her very much.

I will continue to be positive and stay training hard for another opportunity in the NFL.

I appreciate all my fans and supporters and if I have disappointed you in any way, you have my sincerest apologies. Once again I will continue to stay positive and appreciate all the support during this tough period in my life.”

It has been an extremely difficult few days for Johnson, who undoubtedly will a have a ton of questions to answer and some soul-searching to do. Regardless of who his wife is and whether or not she instigated it in any form, domestic violence and putting your hands on a female is a no-no.

I truly hope he can get back on his feet and continue to make a living playing the game he loves. I just hope it doesn’t come with the ultimate price.
