Keyshawn Johnson was born into a poor family, with six siblings and a single mother. He sold drugs as a teenager, and was arrested for selling stolen tickets when he was 16. After he was released, he went to Dorsey High School and managed to get an athletic scholarship to Miami University, because of his skills in the football field. He then transferred to the University of Southern California, where he was named the most valuable player and was subsequently inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 2008. He graduated in 1997, with a BA in social sciences and history.

After college football, Keyshawn Johnson was selected to play for the New York Jets in the 1996 NFL Draft, where he played three seasons and had his first Pro Bowl selection, in 1998. Then he was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team with which he won the Super Bowl Championship in 2002. In the Super Bowl, he had six grabs for 69 yards, but in 2003, he was kept off the field for the last seven games after a furious disagreement with his coach. After Tampa Bay, the football player went to the Dallas Cowboys in 2004, where he lead in touchdowns and receiving yards. He spent his last year as a player at the Carolina Panthers, and in 2006, he became the first player in NFL history who scored a touchdown on Monday Night Football with four different teams.

After retiring in 2007, only one year into his contract, Keyshawn Johnson became an analyst for ESPN, where he hosts “Sunday NFL Countdown” and “Monday Night Countdown”. He has also had several appearances in television shows and series, including “Iron Chef America: The Series”, “Good Morning America”, and “Dancing with the Stars”. In 2009 he also had his own show, “Keyshawn Johnson: Tackling Design”.

Johnson also had or has contracts with brands like U.S. Bank and Jagermeister and, in 2014, he signed a second contract with Adidas for a new release of the shoes Key Trainer, the signature shoes endorsed by the football player in 1996.

Keyshawn Johnson adds money to his net worth from his business, First Picks Management, and his venture capital firm develops investments projects with athletes from the NFL and NBA.

In his personal life, Keyshawn Johnson married his college girlfriend, Shikiri Hightower, in 1998, and the couple had three children before divorcing in 2002, as the former football player was apparently involved in several domestic scandals with his ex-wife; he visits his children once a month. He married Jennifer Conrad in 2014.

1Big Mouth
1Wayne Chrebet's a good player, I'll give him that. But he's not even a No. 3 receiver, and the Jets have made him All-World.
2High school football in California is a lot like it is in Texas, just fewer rednecks.
3I'll have huge numbers. I'll have 1,000 catches, I'll have 10,000 yards. I'll have close to 100 touchdowns. I'll have what they call Hall of Fame numbers.
4To be honest, I don't consider Terrell Owens, Marvin Harrison or Randy Moss great. I consider them good.
5It's all the guys that are in TV, especially the ones that don't have rings... We were laughing, listening to those guys on ESPN, average guys who have television jobs. They were journeymen when they played, and they get an opportunity to pop off.
6I'm free from a horrible situation and, in a couple of months, I'll be one of the two hottest receivers on the free-agent market, along with Terrell Owens. That means I'm going to get a nice payday and play for a team that wants me. I'm stunned and disappointed by what happened, but honestly, I'm relieved.
7Ronde Barber is an Uncle Tom.
8Comparing Wayne Chrebet to me is like comparing a flashlight to a star, flashlights only last so long, and a star is in the sky, forever.
9Just give me the damn ball.
1(March 24) Signs a $19 million deal with the Carolina Panthers after being released by the Dallas Cowboys. Johnson negotiated the contract himself as his agent is serving a one-year suspension. [2006]
2(March 19) Traded to the Dallas Cowboys for Joey Galloway. Johnson had agreed to a 4-year, $20 million deal with Dallas more than three weeks ago, but had to wait for Galloway to come to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. [2004]
3Cut by the Carolina Panthers after one season with the team. [April 2007]
4Carolina Panthers quarterback Vinny Testaverde listed his five favorite receivers from his previous 20 years of NFL football. "They were all guys that were competitive, who just wanted the ball in clutch situations and then could make it happen". They were: Mark Carrier, Wayne Chrebet, Terry Glenn, Michael A. Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson.
5Traded twice and cut twice during his career with four NFL teams.
6The New York Jets traded their former #1 overall pick to the Tampa Bay Bucs, before the 2000 NFL Draft, after several incidents in which Keyshawn Johnson violated team policy and verbally attacked team players and coaches. This trade eventually yielded several starters for the New York Jets, including Chad Pennington, Shaun Ellis and Anthony Becht.
7Keyshawn Johnson was released by the Carolina Panthers on May 1, 2007 after one season with the club.
8Keyshawn Johnson was released by the Dallas Cowboys on March 14, 2006.
9Ten games into the 2003 NFL season, Keyshawn Johnson's tenuous relationship with Tampa Bay suffered, due to sustained misconduct and Head Coach Jon Gruden suspended him for the remainder of the season. Tampa Bay traded him on March 19, 2004 to the Dallas Cowboys.
10Many "tri-state" (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) sports writers have noted that Keyshawn Johnson mellowed some over the years controlling his outspokenness and softening verbal attacks accordingly. It is widely believed to this day that if Keyshawn Johnson had learned this lesson earlier in his career he would have remained a New York Jet for his entire career and had his #19 jersey retired. They believe this because despite his caustic rants, poor conduct, and occasional racial banter he was widely considered an extremely tough, intelligent, and highly clutch receiver who could take a big hit.
11Keyshawn Johnson was fined in December of 2006 for caustic behavior and throwing his helmet in rage during a 27-24 loss to the Eagles.
12In 2005, Johnson had an argument on the sideline, on national television, with quarterback Drew Bledsoe, whom Johnson believed had led him too far with a pass that resulted in a big hit, a Johnson fumble, and a touchdown for the other team.
13On October 3, 2004, Johnson caused a considerable stir by characterizing a former Tampa Bay Buc teammate, Ronde Barber, as an "Uncle Tom" while in the FOX broadcast booth during the Cowboys' bye week.
14Johnson co-authored the controversial book, "Just Give Me the Damn Ball!", after his rookie season, with the New York Jets, in which he attacked fellow wide receiver, #80 Wayne Chrebet.
15Opens upscale Beverly Hills restaurant Reign. The menu features southern/soul food such as fried chicken, smothered pork chops and red beans and rice. (June 1999)
16Tradeed to Tampa Bay for two first-round draft picks. Johnson immediately signs an six-year, $52 million contract extension with the Buccaneers, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. (12 April 2000)
17Lettered in football and track at Dorsey High School (Los Angeles), earning first-team all-state football honors as a senior.
18De-activated for the remainder of the season, by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, following an argument with head coach Jon Gruden. [November 2003]
