NFL WR Chad Johnson Trying Out For XFL As Kicker (TWEETS)

Chad Johnson Kicking

A source confirmed to ESPN the tryout is real. The XFL right now doesn't really have a face of the league, but if Johnson were to get a job, he would quickly become that.

Chad Johnson announced Tuesday that he will soon have the opportunity to prove himself before the XFL. "I have to try out in Houston on Monday".

"The opportunity to kick in the XFL has presented itself, i must tryout Monday in Houston, I'm excited as hell & I'm sure all will go well", Johnson tweeted.

He played college football for Santa Monica College and Oregon State University, and played eleven seasons in the NFL for the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, and the Miami Dolphins. He was named to six Pro Bowls as a receiver, but often expressed honest interest in kicking.


XFL have different rules in the kicking game as there are no extra point kicks, and kickoffs are to be spotted at either the 25- or 30-yard line, making a touchback unlikely.

After a short period of time, Johnson quit football at Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (2014-15) and the Monterrey Fundidores (2017) of the League de Futbol Americano Profesional, the American top football competition in Mexico.

In 166 career games between the Bengal (2001-10) and Patriots (2011), Johnson registered 766 catches for 11,059 yards and 67 receiving touchdowns.
