Days after working out for the Montreal Alouettes, former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has signed with the CFL team.

Johnson, 36, was taken in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He spent the first 10 years of his career with the Bengals, where he had 751 receptions for 10,783 yards and 66 touchdowns.

In 2011, he was traded to the Patriots, where he struggled in limited duty. There he appeared in 15 games and managed just 15 receptions and a single touchdown. Johnson signed with the Dolphins in June 2012, but was released two months later following his arrest on domestic violence charges. He has been out of the NFL since. Last season, he covered the NFL for CBSSports.com

The Alouettes, meanwhile, went 8-10 last season.
