Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton Blames Evelyn Lozada For Chad Johnson Getting Released

Twitter allows athletes who have opinions to express them freely without filter. No team rep telling them what they can and cant say, if something comes to their mind, they can type it in 140 characters.

But with great power, comes great responsibility.

Terrance Knighton, defensive tackle of the Jacksonville Jaguars, took to Twitter to give his thoughts on the Chad Johnson / Evelyn Lozada domestic abuse saga. His views were not a popular one.

Under the barrage of criticism he received, at least he hasn’t said his account was hacked. He is claiming people twisted his words and that he is playing devil’s advocate. As somebody who has been defending everybody’s right to due process in this case, his comments did not come across as playing devil’s advocate.

His opinion, which he later clarified, is that nobody really knows what happened. But to question if Evelyn Lozada knew that her man would be losing his job if she called police is just plain stupid. With the amount of awareness that has been raised in regards to domestic violence, no woman should ever hesitate to call the police if she feels threatened.

  • This is why expressing your views on twitter can be so dangerous, you only have 140 characters to express an opinion.

    And this is only an assumption of interpretation for what he was saying. Evelyn and Chad have a history of “playing too much” for a lack of better words with Chad being a jerk and Evelyn having a quick temper (some have even speculated that this was a publicity stunt, which in my opnion is very tasteless). He isnt excusing what happens but too often in these scenarios you have the women call the cops but then later on drop the charges, so for them not to pursue full legal actions why call the cops to begin with (and these type of scenarios I am willing to bet King had in mind when tweeting this.)
    Interestingly enough we have recently learned that Evelyn is pressing charges against Chad so it may have been a lot more serious than originally thought, so it may have been necessary to call the cops.

  • I never condone violence against women..BUT 1) she’s unstable and ghetto as hell. 2)They seemed to have an open marriage, she’s snooping like a teenager. 3) she’s evil..for her to say in a sworn statement to police that he was yelling “I don’t give a [email protected] about my career” even if true, was akin to her telling the world, his teammates and coach that he yelled he didn’t care about football. She KNEW that would ruin him. Vivid is working on an offer as we speak, I bet…SMH. Such a shame.

    • What you’re saying SOUNDS Very Sensible to Me but YOU Already know there’s a Tremendous amount of FEMALES (That Ride HARD For Evelyn and FEMALES Like Her Though…)

  • Maybe Knighton was thinking along the lines that the headbutt was accidental and does she really need to escalate this?

    Chad has no one to blame but himself. Athletes get involved with these high profile women and pay a high price.


  • All, I’m going to say is if she’s like the Hispanic female that I dated, then there’s more to this story that meets the eye.
