Chad Johnson (born January 9, 1978 in Miami, Florida), is an American football wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. The Bengals drafted Johnson from Oregon State University in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft.
After graduating from Miami Beach Senior High School, Johnson attended Santa Monica Junior College, where he was a teammate of future Carolina Panthers star wide receiver Steve Smith. In 2000, Johnson transferred to Oregon State University after being aggressively recruited by coach Dennis Erickson.
Alongside future Bengals teammate and fellow wideout T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Johnson led his team to an 11-1 season and a victory over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl that year. He also broke a school-book record for the longest touchdown reception by any player in their school's history with a 97 yard reception in a game against Stanford University.
Johnson finished his sole season at Oregon State with 37 receptions for 806 yards and 8 touchdowns.
OTHER NOTES: Attended Langston University (Okla.) in 1996, but did not play football … Has two high-profile cousins in the NFL, WR Keyshawn Johnson and CB Samari Rolle.
