Fresh
This undated photo provided by the Broward Sheriff's Office shows Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. A judge has set bond at $2,500 for Johnson, who is being held in a Florida jail on a domestic violence charge after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument. Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says Johnson posted the bond early Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012, though jail records show he had not yet been released. Swickle says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.

The former Pro Bowler last appeared in an NFL game during the 2011 season with New England.
