36-year-old Chad Johnson is salvaging what’s left of his football skills up north in a place they call Canada, playing in the Canadian Football League (CFL) to be exact, for the powerhouse Montreal Alouettes.
The former Bengals, Patriots and Dolphins receiver looks very much the same as he was the last few years of his NFL career, catching a pass on a simple route before stumbling and not doing much of anything else. He finished the day with that lone catch for 13 yards.
But it’s work, eh?
“It felt good. Nervous, butterflies, it was cool,” Johnson said on his return to professional football, via 630wpro.com. “I have a lot of work to do but it felt good.”
