Chad Johnson has broken his silence ... and has issued an apology "To everyone for the recent events that have occurred" involving his wife Evelyn Lozada.

Moments after Evelyn filed for divorce, Johnson released a statement on his website regarding his recent domestic violence arrest ... saying, "I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death."

He adds, "To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies.  I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life."

Even though Johnson was dropped from the Miami Dolphins, the 34-year-old wide receiver doesn't believe his football career is over ... saying, "I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL."

And now this ... Chad just changed his Twitter picture to a sign that reads "Rock ... Hard place" with arrows pointing in opposite directions. Wonder what he's trying to say ...

Know how to tell your relationship is over? When you decide that headbutting your wife might just be a good idea!

I like Chad Johnson but he's had too many chances and let them go. I don't see him playing this year unless a team picks him up half way through the season. Everybody that's hating on him though would probably do the same thing if they found out their spouse brought condoms and didn't know about it.

He seriously is dumber than we think. He should be lucky the 5-headed broad divorced his black a$$. I don't condone domestic violence, but I am honestly surprised that this b!tch hasn't had her a$$ beat before.

Chad Johnson's career with the Dolphins was on the bubble before this. The domestic violence just burst that bubble. I take it with the apology, he's not blaming her, saying she's the guilty party anymore.
.
Is his career over? TO thought he was still viable as an NFL player. How's his career going?
*cough cough*

Yea Chad, it will be alright. That is until you see her arm and arm with somebody you thought was you friend. She's actually running to his open arms right about....now.

Chad is an idiot for #1 marrying the thuggish hoe and #2 not releasing a statement telling us how she attacked him because of the condom receipt and they had a head collision as he tried to stop her. Now it's really obvious that Chad married that thug for love and Evelyn married that dumb a** for his money. Cha Ching!!! This gold digger is cashing out! He deserves to lose his shirt... what a dumb a**.
