Chad Johnson is hoping that anger management classes will be enough to clean his troubled off-the-field issues and possibly get him back on a football team.

Johnson, who sat down with HBO's Inside the NFL analyst Cris Collinsworth, spoke about his outlook on his future in the NFL.

"I'm taking classes, anger management. 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?", Johnson said.

Johnson also realize that the market for a 34-year-old wide receiver in the NFL ISN'T HIGH, on top of the fact that his NFL numbers have been declining over the past few years, along with his legal issues.

"When you get a humble Chad Johnson that has lost everything and has to work his way back up, that's a big deal. 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 the drive," Johnson went on to say.

Johnson also claims that the reason why he was cut from the Miami Dolphins was due to his arrest last month for hitting (head-butting) his wife and not for his practice performances during training camp, which some say was terrible.
