After getting cut by the Miami Dolphins following spending a night in jail on suspicion of headbutting his wife, Chad Johnson decided to get his football fix elsewhere.
But when he tried to play Madden '13, he had a rude awakening.
He couldn't find his avatar.
Tweeted Johnson: "That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and you have to create yourself."
Johnson tweeted that message Wednesday to his 3,733,709 followers. Since Johnson is no longer on a roster, his avatar was moved to the free agent pool.
That realization apparently led to some introspection. Through Twitter, Johnson then lamented his actions that led to his Aug. 11 arrest.
