Chad Johnson debuts for Montreal Alouettes (Video)

Having last played for the New England Patriots in 2011, Chad Johnson is back on the football field, this time north of the border in Canada. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver signed with the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes earlier this year.

Johnson finished with one catch for 13 yards and, understandably, said he isn’t near where he wants to be following the game.

Montreal finished the 2013 season with the second fewest passing first downs, third fewest passing yards per game, and worst completion percentage in the CFL. Whether Johnson can help improve any of those numbers remains to be seen. For now, he’s back to just having fun.

Chad Johnson shares boner picture on Facebook while watching ‘Monster’s Ball’

Chad Johnson and his little friend Pepe were enjoying some Halle Berry in “Monster’s Ball,” and the wide receiver decided to show his Facebook followers how much he was loving the movie.

Johnson shared a picture of himself sitting in a seat likely while traveling, but the photo was concentrated on a three-quarter chub he was sporting in his short-shorts. Or at least that’s pretty sure what he was getting at. The only comment he gave for the photo was “Monsters Ball!!”

Chad Johnson justifies cheating on Evelyn Lozada: Martin Luther King Jr. was hoein’

Chad-Johnson-mugshotNow that Chad Johnson officially has a job with the Canadian Football League, he can get back to sounding like an idiot and not having much to worry about. For the most part, that’s exactly what he did during a recent interview with “NiteCap” creator and host Peter Bailey.

Much of the conversation centered around Chad’s decision to cheat on his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. Both Johnson and Bailey concluded that “men love sex,” which is why they have a tendency to get into trouble. Johnson had this to say about not being faithful to Lozada.

“Nobody said it had to be the way it is,” Johnson said, via theGrio. “We all trying to follow rules, somebody made those rules up. Nobody said you had to be with one woman. Nobody said that.”

But the real reason Johnson believes it was understandable that he cheated is because Martin Luther King Jr. allegedly did the same. Bailey noted how Johnson wouldn’t be sitting in his big house if not for Dr. King’s work.

“What was Dr. King doing behind the closed doors?” Johnson asked. “Don’t sugarcoat it.”

“It’s been documented the man had infidelity issues,” Bailey responded.

“You don’t want to say hoein’?” Johnson asked. “Why don’t you just say hoein’?”

So there you have it. Chad Johnson and the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. aren’t all that different from one another, after all.

Chad Johnson signs with CFL’s Montreal Alouettes


Chad Johnson is set to continue his football career next year, but those of us who live in the United States will not be watching him play on TV. The former NFL wide receiver officially signed a contract with the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes on Thursday.

Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said over the weekend that Johnson was scheduled to work out with the team in Vero Beach, Fla. earlier this week. Apparently Popp and the Alouettes liked what they saw.

Johnson is 36 and has not caught a pass in a live game since he was with the New England Patriots in 2011. He finished with just 15 catches for 276 yards that season and has had nothing but off-the-field problems since.

Johnson is hoping his post-NFL career turns out better than his buddy Terrell Owens’ did. While it would be understandable if you forgot, TO spent some time with the Indoor Football League’s Allen Wranglers back in 2012 and they ended up buying out his contract and ownership stake in the team for $50. He later demanded money from the team and threatened legal action.

Best of luck, Chad.

Report: Chad Johnson to work out for CFL’s Alouettes

Chad-Johnson-DolphinsChad Johnson has likely played his last snap in the NFL, but that does not mean his football career is over. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the former Miami Dolphins wide receiver is scheduled to work out for the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes this week.

“Talks did take place (and) have escalated over the last week,” Alouettes general manager Jim Popp told Rapoport.

The Alouettes are the team Marc Trestman coached for five seasons and led to four division titles before becoming the head coach of the Chicago Bears. They are also the same CFL team that once held the rights to Tim Tebow while his NFL career was in limbo.

After spending seven days in jail last year for infuriating a judge with a playful butt slap in court, Johnson said that he wanted another shot in the NFL. No team was willing to sign him and he has not caught a pass in the NFL since his disappointing 2011 season with the New England Patriots.

Despite not having played in more than two years, Johnson is still just 36 years old. Assuming he has kept in shape, it’s not out of the question that he could contribute in the CFL.

Chad Johnson: Marvin Lewis saved Ray Lewis from getting beat up by me


Chad Johnson appears to have entered that phase in his life where you remember things from your career a lot differently than they actually happened. Was the artist formerly known as Ochocino one of the best receivers in the NFL for years? Sure. Could he beat up Ray Lewis? Haha, that’s a good one.

On Thursday, Johnson shared a probably untrue story with his Twitter followers about the time he tried to fight Lewis after Lewis supposedly knocked Johnson’s helmet off “unnecessarily” during a game.

“He went out the side door, Ed Reed had to talk me out of putting these paws on Ray,” Johnson wrote. “(Second) time we played the Ravens I caught Ray slipping in pre-game, I stepped to him, he started preaching, I was like the Lord can’t help you!

“So I square up ready to go from the shoulders and Ray is steadily reciting a scripture and I’m ready to rumble, I’m like let’s run it WTF!!! Long story short Marvin Lewis broke it up and saved Ray from getting beat up in pre-game.”

Long story slightly less short — Marvin Lewis saved Chad Johnson from getting the beating of a lifetime.

Of course, Johnson was probably joking. He has to know Lewis would demolish him if the two ever got into an actual fight. While Johnson’s off playing video games all the time, Lewis is probably in a dark room somewhere watching film of his most ferocious hits and sweating bullets.

Chad Johnson says he’ll buy remaining Bengals playoff tickets to avoid blackout

chad-ochocincoThe most underrated storyline in sports this week has to be the lack of sellouts for playoff games across the NFL. As of Thursday morning, the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers — I know, right? — still had tickets available for their upcoming playoff games. The teams are hoping to avoid a television blackout by selling out. According to Chad Johnson, the Bengals don’t have to worry about it.

Earlier this week, Johnson tweeted that he’ll buy any unsold tickets from his former team if a sellout is not achieved before Sunday.

At the time Johnson made the comment, Reedy noted that he would need close to $1 million to buy the remaining tickets. That figure has likely gone down since Tuesday, but does the artist formerly known as Ochocinco have that kind of money to be throwing around anymore?

Johnson may go out to eat with fans from time to time and pick up the tab, but don’t expect him to keep this promise. The hope is that the Bengals sell out anyway. If you can’t sell out a playoff game, you’re doing something wrong.
