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."
Apr 16 - 8:28 AM

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.
Apr 12 - 12:06 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.

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.

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.

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.

Free agent WR Chad Johnson is hoping to make a comeback this season.

Johnson told CSN Houston that he wants to play for the Texans, but conceded he’s in "no position to be picky." After being released by the Dolphins in training camp and missing all of 2012, it's unlikely any team is willing to take on a shot on him. Johnson turned 35 this offseason and hasn't been productive since 2010.

Free agent WR Chad Johnson admitted on ESPN's First Take Wednesday that his August arrest for domestic battery, in addition to an obsession with self-promotion, cost him the end of his NFL career.

"I messed up. I messed up," said Johnson. "Period. I lost everything. Football, my wife, the family I had, over something that didn't really mean anything." Johnson finalized his divorce from Evelyn Lozada in September. "I lost that edge when my focus went away from the game of football," Johnson also conceded. "I know that. I understand that." Johnson says he's now "humbled", and guaranteed that he's "going to play again." He turns 35 in a month.

Free agent WR Chad Johnson is not working out for the Eagles Tuesday.

Johnson created a stir when he tweeted that he had a flight to Philadelphia Tuesday morning. As it turns out, his trip to the city of brotherly love has nothing to do with the football team. Johnson remains unlikely to play in the NFL this season.
Tue, Sep 18, 2012 10:17:00 AM

Tuesday's episode of Hard Knocks revealed that Chad Johnson was struggling to pick up the Dolphins' offense, just as he did last year in New England.

Asked if his receivers could play all positions, coach Joe Philbin replied, "Well, most of them ... You know, the big knock on [Johnson] when he came here was he couldn't pick up the system." A peek inside one film session showed all three QBs shaking their heads because Johnson didn't know where to go. He may have been running with the starters in camp, but Johnson was far from guaranteed a roster spot even if he hadn't been arrested last weekend. The episode won't sit well with potential suitors.
