      Chad Johnson set to work out with CFL team this week By Dan Hanzus Around the League Writer  NFL.comPublished:  April 12, 2014 at 11:09 p.mchad_zpsccafc9bf.jpgChad Johnson could head north to continue his professional football career.NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that the former NFL wide receiver will work out for the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes this week in Vero Beach, Fla."Talks did take place (and) have escalated over the last week," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp told Rapoport.Johnson hasn't played a snap since August 2012, when he was released by the Miami Dolphins following a domestic violence incident involving his now ex-wife. Johnson has expressed the desire to continue his NFL career, but has been unable to find a suitor.Johnson played 11 seasons in the NFL (2001 to 2011), spending a decade with the Cincinnati Bengals and one season with the New England Patriots. He went to five Pro Bowls with the Bengals, and was twice named first-team All-Pro.Which is to say that before his colorful personality became the overarching narrative of his career, Johnson had been a very productive wide receiver. The CFL isn't the erstwhile Ochocinco's first choice, but it's his best option at age 36.

      Mike Williams game always reminded me of Johnson, both are talented but a little bit off mentally as well. Still root for both of them though.

      He would have been a great receiver for us a few years ago. I don’t doubt that he still can move the chains, but pass. We need to build a young group that will grow.

      I always like Ochocinco, he was more of a self promoter than an evil villain, IMO.  But at this point in time, he needs to be thinking of his life after football, instead of trying out for bush league teams.

      while that's true it's one of the hardest things in life to do. all of a sudden you no longer have the crowds screaming, your not the center of attention anymore. i don't blame him for trying one last shot of glory.

      i totally agree with you AJ but if a team is willing to give him a shot…think of it this way, chances are when you were between 17-19 you knew a hot girl and maybe fooled around with her a little; if you could bring back those times you'd go for it.i see it in the same way; we all want to be young and want a shot of greatness

      Fair point, but I tend to plan more long term.  I doubt he needs the coin that gig would bring.  He should think about getting into coaching. Maybe start out coaching some youngsters down in Miami. Hell, he could almost field a team with his own children. He has like 5-6 kids.
