Updating a previous item, former Bengals WR Chad Johnson wasn't hired to a coaching position with the Browns.
Johnson tweeted out last month that he had accepted a gig to work for the organization, but in typical "Ochocinco" fashion, it wasn't as good as Johnson made it sound. Coach Hue Jackson simply had him do some hands-on stuff with the Browns' youngsters as a guest. He's already been sent back home, and Jackson indicated coaching won't be in Johnson's future.

Chad Johnson tweeted that he's accepted a coaching position with the Cleveland Browns.

Johnson is close with coach Hue Jackson, and had been campaigning for work on the Browns' coaching staff. The Browns already have a WRs coach in Al Saunders, so it's unclear what Johnson's role will be, or if he'll stay with the team beyond training camp. Ochocinco definitely knows a thing or two about catching the pigskin. He ranks 33rd all-time with 11,059 receiving yards.

Retired WR Chad Johnson is campaigning for a coaching job with the Browns.

"Gonna ask Hue [Jackson] if I can join the Browns coaching staff as a 'route running specialist' assistant receiver coach," Johnson tweeted. "What's the [worst] he can say." Johnson has a close relationship with Jackson, and Jackson once called Johnson a "son." Jackson coached Ochocinco in Cincinnati from 2004-06 as the Bengals' WRs coach. We doubt Johnson gets the gig.

Former Bengals WR Chad Johnson is still hoping to return to the NFL.

Johnson, 36, is currently playing for the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL and has just four catches for 78 yards and one touchdown through five games. "It's not like we're holding our breath that he's going to play in the NFL," agent Drew Rosenhaus said. "But he's trying." Ochocinco's NFL days are donezo.

Former Bengals WR Chad Johnson caught two passes for 20 yards in his CFL debut with the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday.

He caught the two balls from former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. A third target to Johnson was intercepted. Johnson, 36, remains determined to continue his football career. This was his first game action since 2011.
Sun, Jun 29, 2014 12:56:00 PM

Free agent Chad Johnson's 2012 no contest plea to assault charges could keep him out of the CFL.

The Montreal Alouettes inked Johnson to a deal 11 days ago and may have to wait another 7-10 days to find out if Johnson can secure a work permit in Canada. Johnson pleaded no contest after allegedly assaulting his wife two summers ago. The 36-year-old hasn't played football in two years.

Free agent Chad Johnson has signed with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Ochocinco is Canada's problem now. Johnson last appeared in an NFL game in 2011, and turned 36 in January. His NFL days are long gone, but perhaps he can still make plays north of the border. He'll be catching passes from former NFLer Troy Smith.

Free agent Chad Johnson is participating in the Montreal Alouettes' minicamp this week.

Johnson, 36, hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011 and knows that ship has sailed. He seems to have embraced a potential job in Montreal, where the quarterback is former Ohio State standout Troy Smith. The Alouettes insist Johnson is not a publicity stunt. "It's all business," GM Jim Popp said. "It's real. He's in great shape. He wants to play and we'll see how things are."

Free agent Chad Johnson will work out for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.

Johnson's last football activity was a disastrous 2012 stint with the Dolphins in which he was cut only a couple weeks into training camp. Previous to that, Johnson spent a underwhelming year in New England. At 36, it is unlikely Johnson has any juice left in the tank.
Sat, Apr 12, 2014 12:06:00 PM

Free agent Chad Johnson has been released from jail after serving seven days of his 30-day sentence.

A plea deal called for Ochocinco to spend no time in the slammer for his 2012 domestic-violence charges before the judge took offense to Ocho's celebratory butt slap of his lawyer. We presume Johnson will make noise about continuing his NFL career, but the odds are very high that he's played his last snap.
Mon, Jun 17, 2013 11:27:00 AM

Free agent Chad Johnson has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation in his 2012 domestic violence case.

Ochocinco was working toward a plea deal that involved no jail time, but angered the judge after he "playfully slapped his attorney on the behind in court." Unreal. The judge also extended Ocho's probation period by three months. A strong career is wheezing to a pitiful end.
Mon, Jun 10, 2013 11:27:00 AM

Free agent Chad Johnson has been arrested for violating the terms of his probation in his 2012 domestic violence case.

Ochocinco violated the terms of his probation by missing two visits with his probation officer, and failing to prove he had enrolled in a domestic violence education class. The 35-year-old former NFLer is now facing jail time.

TMZ.com reports that Broward County, FL has issued a warrant for free agent Chad Johnson's arrest.

The warrant stems from his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last summer. Johnson has reportedly failed to report to his probation officer, violating the terms of his probation. If a judge determines that he indeed violated the terms of his probation, Johnson could face jail time.

Free agent WR Chad Johnson is still trying to get back in the NFL.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Johnson is "working out every day, wanting to play, willing to do what it takes." But much like his old friend Terrell Owens, it's just not going to happen. Johnson is 35 and hasn't put anything positive on tape since 2010. Neither guy is worth the trouble.
Thu, Apr 4, 2013 10:13:00 AM

Free agent Chad Johnson pleaded no contest on Monday in his battery case that is still being resolved.

Johnson has participated in anger management and is asking to be put on administrative probation in order to put the case to rest. Johnson also reiterated his desire to return to the NFL this season. He has already expressed a desire to play for the Texans. Nobody is going to sign the 35-year-old.
