Chad Johnson is fast becoming my favorite Cincinnati athlete... Sean Casey, Adam Dunn and Wily Mo Pena are also in the running. From the Bengals' web site... I bolded my favorite parts.|
7/11 OR CNN?
Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson’s enthusiasm is everywhere down here at Georgetown College. On Wednesday, he called for a cameraman to take a shot of him lined up against cornerback Deltha O’Neal in one-on-drills.
On Tuesday, he leaped head first into a scuffle between receiver Kevin Walter and defensive back James Allen to break it up and ended up doing a handstand. If he’s not doing that, he’s on the camp walkie-talkies telling workers to come over and watch him, or running downfield on the scout kick team screaming his head off.
“I’m going to do something,” said Johnson of the end-zone celebrations that got him so much notoriety and at least one 15-yard penalty last year. “But nothing that’s going to hurt the team.”
As for the officials supposedly cracking down on DBs for putting their hands on receivers after the wideouts are behind them at least five yards down field, Johnson shrugged.
“No one is going to touch me after five yards,” he said.
