Former NFL wide receiver and potential Hall of Famer Terrell Owens visited another former wide receiver, Chad Johnson in an Florida jail on Saturday, and came away hoping never to have to go near a jail every again.

"That was the 1st time ever visiting someone in jail & hopefully the last. That's not a place anyone wants to be regardless of how many days," a humble Owens tweeted.

Johnson is serving a 30-day jail sentence for violating his probation in a domestic violence case. Johnson was sentenced after a judge rejected his plea deal after Johnson slapped his attorney's butt.

Owens joked that after five days in jail, Johnson needed a haircut, but it was apparent that Owens did not feel like clowning around when it came to sharing his thoughts on jail.

He tweeted he did not know what to expect and that by communicating via video conference with his friend let Owens know "that's not where anyone wants to be. I know he's only in the county jail but to someone that has never been locked up...Jail is Jail!

Johnson last played in the NFL in 2011. He was released by the Miami Dolphins during the 2012 preseason after police accused him of headbutting his then-wife, Evelyn Lozada, a reality TV star, during an argument at their home in Davie, Fla.
