Chad Johnson says he won’t attend any Bengals functions, demands trade
If there was any doubt about whether Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson wants out of Cincy, he just made it clear as day.
The cause of Chad coming out and saying that he won’t participate was a statement by Bengals Quarterback Carson Palmer in which he indicated that Johnson said that he would be at mini-camp in June.
“I want to make this very clear,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I don’t know where he got that. I made no assertion to Carson that I would do that. Nothing has changed from what I’ve been saying for three months that I don’t want to play for the Bengals.”
Johnson made one of his strongest statements in saying he is not planning on reporting to any team functions because he wants to be traded.
“I want to be traded before the draft, and if that doesn’t happen, I want to be traded as soon as possible,” Johnson said. “I don’t intend on reporting to anything.”
The Bengals and Marvin Lewis have continued stating that they have no intention of dealing Johnson but it seems clear that he doesn’t want to be there. We’ll see how it plays out
