Chad Johnson Signs with the Montreal Alouettes

Elsa/Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- Chad Johnson is back in football, just not in the NFL. Johnson has agreed to sign with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

After recently working out for the team, Johnson and the team agreed to a two-year deal.

"Chad Johnson did an outstanding job the last three days," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said in a statement. "As we added him into the mix, it was to see how he communicated with the players, how he held himself, the way he physically held up, his true interest in coming to the CFL."

Johnson hasn't appeared in a pro game since he was a member of the New England Patriots back in 2011. He was released by the Miami Dolphins prior to the 2012 season after being arrested for a domestic assault.

At his peak, Johnson was one of thebest receivers in the NFL. While with the Cincinnati Bengals, Johnson had at least 1,000 yards receiving for six straight seasons.

In 11 NFL seasons, Johnson caught 766 passes for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns.
