Free-agent WR Chad Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in jail Monday, June 10, for a probation violation in his domestic violence case. His legal side had reached a deal with prosecutors for community service and counseling instead of jail time. After a deal was supposedly in place, he was asked by the judge whether he approved of his lawyer, and Johnson then gave his lawyer a tap on the backside, in the football parlance of approval.
