In his lifetime, Chad Johnson has been a six-time Pro Bowl NFL receiver, a man known as “Chad Ochocino,” a reality-television star, and, apparently, a person who couldn’t pay his mortgage.
Johnson, who owned a mansion in Davie until last week, seems to have run into some financial trouble. According to court filings, Johnson’s 6,000-square-foot home, at 2899 Juniper Lane, was foreclosed earlier this month and will be put up for public sale in April.
In the world of juiced-up supermen, tattooed outlaws, and attention-hungry prima donnas that is the National Football League, Johnson, who grew up in Miami, managed to stand out like a unicorn during his playing days. He spent the prime of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals — in that time, he was a fantasy stud and caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in seven of his first nine seasons. He was elected to six Pro Bowls during that same stretch.
