Former Tennessee star takes NFL chance after acquittal

A.J. Johnson, ex-University of Tennessee linebacker is taking another chance from the league just a month after the player was finally acquitted of the rape charge.

Having had his first practice on Monday as a pro, the player told that he’s so happy to feel himself a part of his team and he’s ready to work hard for the sake of the joint success.

He added that his faith in God helped him a lot.

Vance Joseph, coach told that he didn’t know what to expect from the player after such a specific layoff from the game. The coach added that even with this 3-year absence, the player is still promising for the team, especially considering his decent size, intelligence, and capability of running fast.

On July 27 Johnson and his teammate Michael Williams got acquitted of all counts. In 2015, the players were indicted right after a female told that they had her raped at Johnson’s apartment during a party on November 16, 2014.
