The former Miami Dolphins football player joined celebrity trainer and actress A.J. Johnson – no relation! – for a bite and a chat at Le Petit Four restaurant in Hollywood's Sunset Plaza just two weeks after his divorce from Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada became final.
With them both looking fit and ripped in casual workout clothes, it was hard to tell if the pair had met up for a gym date or something more romantic.
Whatever the circumstances, the six time pro baller sounded excited to meet up with A.J. as he tweeted "Locked and Loaded…" in reply to her question of "u ready?" earlier on Monday.
The 49-year-old wellness coach and founder of the 'A.J. Zone' has also hosted a reality fitness competition, From Flab To Fab on VH1, the same network that airs Basketball Wives and canceled Lozada and Johnson's doomed wedding special Ev & Ocho following their split after just 41 days of marriage .

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the 34-year-old wide receiver was placed on 12 months probation by a Miami area court on September 21 and ordered to take domestic violence awareness classes in relation to the August 11 head-butting incident that landed Evelyn in the emergency room and the short-lived couple in divorce court.
