Montreal team signs Chad Johnson to 2-year contract

A judge has set bond at $2,500 for Johnson, who is being held in a Florida jail on a domestic violence charge after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument. Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says Johnson posted the bond early Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012, though jail records show he had not yet been released. Swickle says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. Photo: Associated Press/AP Photo/Broward Sheriff's Office

MONTREAL (AP) — Former NFL star Chad Johnson is heading to the Canadian Football League.

The former Pro Bowler last appeared in an NFL game during the 2011 season with New England.

Johnson, who once changed his last name to Ochocinco, is 30th on the NFL’s all-time receiving list with 11,059 yards.
