Former NFL receiver Chad Johnson will have to wait another week to find out whether he’ll be going to jail.

Johnson recently was arrested after failing to meet with his probation officer.  It’s one of the key terms of the arrangement that kept him out of prison after he pleaded no contest last year to assaulting his former wife, in an incident that got him fired by the Dolphins.

Via the Associated Press, a hearing on the question of whether Johnson’s probation will be revoked has been postponed from today until next Monday, June 10.  Prosecutors intend to request jail time for Johnson.

Johnson claims that the failure to meet with the probation officer was a misunderstanding.

Since being cut by the Dolphins in the aftermath of the incident, Johnson has drawn no interest from any NFL team.
