Chad Johnson sure is a surprising dude.

So what'd he do now, you're probably wondering.

Well, apparently the six-time pro bowler can run 24 MPH on an inclined treadmill. 

Sounds insane, but seeing is believing, and luckily for us, Johnson was filmed doing it and the video is on Youtube. (h/t Zach Berger for

If you remember, a video made its rounds on the internet last week of Arizona Cardinals rookie Robert Gill running 25 MPH on a treadmill from a standing start.

Which one is harder to do, I'm not sure. What I do know is that it is really impressive by both players. 

Even though he didn’t play in 2012, has had recent legal troubles, and comes with a lot of baggage, a guy that can still run that fast and has a proven track record as an elite receiver in the NFL has got to be enticing to one of the 32 teams out there.

Johnson played for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2001-2010 and is the franchise leader in receptions (751), reception yards (10,783), receiving touchdowns (66) and average receiving yards per game (102 yards).

He played for the New England Patriots in 2011 and only had 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. He did however get to play in a Super Bowl that season but only had one catch for 21 yards in a 21-17 loss to the New York Giants.

Johnson is also known for his touchdown dances, over the top personality, changing his last name to Ochocinco, staring on dancing with the stars and his marriage to TV reality star Evelyn Lozada that lasted 41 days and ended in a domestic violence case

You never know what this guy is going to do next, but he sure has a knack for keeping it pretty interesting.
