ESPN is reporting that former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has signed a two-year deal to play in the Canadian Football League.

The veteran receiver signed a two-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday after impressing team officials at a minicamp in Vero Beach, Fla. He last appeared in an NFL game during the 2011 season with the New England Patriots.

"Chad Johnson did an outstanding job the last three days," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said in a statement. "As we added him into the mix, it was to see how he communicated with the players, how he held himself, the way he physically held up, his true interest in coming to the CFL.
Johson played 11 seasons in the NFL catching 766 passes for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns. He has been to the Pro Bowl 6 times.
