Terrell Owens tweets about visiting Chad Johnson in jail

The now-defunct NFL careers of Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson share some similarities, and it begins with their mouths. Both of those were loud throughout their respective time in the league. As prima donna wide receivers, the two regularly called as much attention to themselves as possible — especially when they shared a field as teammates on the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010.

Where the two have split in recent months has been legal troubles. Owens has had his fair share, but now he is working towards a potential career as a professional bowler. On the other hand, Ochocinco was sentenced to 30 days in jail after slapping his lawyer on the butt during what was supposed to be a hearing to grant Johnson a plea deal.

Through it all, the two became friends. Owens actually took a visit to Johnson in jail, and tweeted out a report of the experience.

Just visited the homie @ochocinco. He’s in good spirits, he needs a haircut already tho. Lol. He sends his best regards to everyone.

That was the 1st time ever visiting someone in jail & hopefully the last. That’s not a place anyone wants to be regardless of how many days.

I really didn’t know what to expect but to see the homie locked up is a very humbling experience, to talk to him via vid conference let me

know that’s not where anyone wants to be. I know he’s only in the county jail but to someone that has never been locked up…Jail is Jail!

Owens is right on every level. Jail is not a place anyone wants to end up. Hopefully Ochocinco is making his one and only visit behind bars.

Maybe the two can team up after Johnson becomes a free man and resurrect their reality TV careers.
