WR Chad Johnson receives work permit for Alouettes job
Chad Johnson finally can enter Montreal and start playing football.
After taking the past two years off from football -- and instead, working inside the plush studios of CBSSports.com headquarters in Fort Lauderdale last year -- receiver Chad Johnson signed a no-frills deal with the Montreal Alouettes to play the 2014 season in the Canadian Football League.
And after battling work permit issues for the past few weeks, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora had some good news Tuesday.

According to La Canfora, Johnson's contract contains no incentives.
Said GM Jim Popp: "He told us he just wanted to play."
