As the former Miami Dolphins wide receiver sat down with the show’s hosts, James Brown and Chris Collinsworth, this week Johnson appeared to want to lay his cards on the table and offer an interview that was honest and heartfelt about his tumultuous time with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.

Admitting to past mistakes and their consequences, Johnson said:

“When you get a humble Chad Johnson that has lost everything and has to work his way back up, that’s a big deal,” admitted Johnson. “Because you’re not getting that same individual, you’re not getting that same fun guy….  I gotta prove a point. That’s the scariest thing in the world to have someone that has that drive.”

On being forced to take anger management classes, Johnson said, “I’m taking classes, anger management classes. I’m trying to find out how can I channel my anger when I’m in situations to where I would pop off? How can I defuse those situations?”

The former “Dancing With the Stars” standout also talked out about how he now feels about losing Evelyn:

“Being married, being a husband, being a lover, was an honor,” Johnson said in the interview. “And I lost that. And you know that saying … ‘You never know what you have until it’s gone.’ And now I finally know what they mean. I lost two of the things that really meant the most to me. That someone completed my world, completed me, period. But I just hadn’t made that transition to where I needed to be the best man that I could, or best husband that I could. I didn’t make it all the way, fully.”

Johnson, who claims that he is taking an introspective reassessment of himself, is now seemingly on a road to change:

“Chad has to work on Chad,” he says. “Chad has to go deep down inside and figure out where he went wrong. At what point did you lose focus on what’s most important? Like especially the game of football.  At some point I had drifted off track away from that and being one of the best at what I do.”
