After an incident allegedly involving rape at his home, Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson has been indicted for rape along with his teammate, Michael Williams.
University of Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson and cornerback Michael Williams have both been indicted by a grand jury due to being the subjects in a rape investigation.
Terrell Thomas retires – Former New York Giants cornerback retires after six seasons
Trent Richardson – Indianapolis Colts reportedly fed up with underachieving running back
Carmelo Anthony – New York Knicks expected to shut down star forward after All-Star break
Both of these players had been suspended from the team in November after being labeled as suspects in an incident where rapes allegedly occurred at Johnson’s off-campus apartment.
Neither of these players have been officially charged with rape, but Johnson has a lot riding on his future since he is expected to be selected in the NFL Draft after accruing 425 tackles throughout his college career.
If Johnson is charged and found guilty, it will be difficult for him to ever find work in the NFL. Williams is still in college and remains suspended indefinitely.
