Free agent Chad Johnson's 2012 no contest plea to assault charges could keep him out of the CFL.
The Montreal Alouettes inked Johnson to a deal 11 days ago and may have to wait another 7-10 days to find out if Johnson can secure a work permit in Canada. Johnson pleaded no contest after allegedly assaulting his wife two summers ago. The 36-year-old hasn't played football in two years.

Free agent Chad Johnson has signed with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.
Ochocinco is Canada's problem now. Johnson last appeared in an NFL game in 2011, and turned 36 in January. His NFL days are long gone, but perhaps he can still make plays north of the border. He'll be catching passes from former NFLer Troy Smith.

Free agent Chad Johnson is participating in the Montreal Alouettes' minicamp this week.
Johnson, 36, hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011 and knows that ship has sailed. He seems to have embraced a potential job in Montreal, where the quarterback is former Ohio State standout Troy Smith. The Alouettes insist Johnson is not a publicity stunt. "It's all business," GM Jim Popp said. "It's real. He's in great shape. He wants to play and we'll see how things are."

Free agent Chad Johnson will work out for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
Johnson's last football activity was a disastrous 2012 stint with the Dolphins in which he was cut only a couple weeks into training camp. Previous to that, Johnson spent a underwhelming year in New England. At 36, it is unlikely Johnson has any juice left in the tank.

Free agent Chad Johnson has been released from jail after serving seven days of his 30-day sentence.
A plea deal called for Ochocinco to spend no time in the slammer on his 2012 domestic-violence charges before the judge took offense to Ocho's celebratory butt slap of his lawyer. We presume Johnson will make noise about continuing his NFL career, but the odds are very high that he's played his last snap.

Free agent Chad Johnson has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation in his 2012 domestic violence case.
Ochocinco was working toward a plea deal that involved no jail time, but angered the judge after he "playfully slapped his attorney on the behind in court." Unreal. The judge also extended Ocho's probation period by three months. A strong career is wheezing to a pitiful end.

Free agent WR Chad Johnson is still trying to get back in the NFL.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Johnson is "working out every day, wanting to play, willing to do what it takes." But much like his old friend Terrell Owens, it's just not going to happen. Johnson is 35 and hasn't put anything positive on tape since 2010. Neither guy is worth the trouble.
