Chad Johnson doesn't have a NFL contract but is still rich.  The former NFL wide-receiver had a crazy year in 2012 on and off the field.  Some thought Chad 'Ochocino' Johnson would turn out to be another Terrell Owens after his fall out with reality star Evelyn Lozada.  Think again!

Chad Johnson had to report his financial status to the courts in his child support case.  Surprisingly, Johnson is not financial in trouble.  TMZ obtained documents saying Johnson was bringing in over 66K a month during 2012 while he didn't have an NFL contract.

And there are more riches ... Chad lists more than $1.28 million in real estate assets, $600,000 in cars, $75,000 worth of furniture, $40,000 in jewelry ... and practically NO DEBT.

Chad Johnson is proving that he is sustaining himself and able to recover from his troubles of 2012.  It is rare to hear the story of successful people maintaining after personal tragedies.  Salute to Chad Johnson.
