How much does Chad Johnson have left for Montreal?

From where I sit it looks like Chad Johnson still thinks he can play football...


The problem is he's going to try to continue his career in the CFL. I don't really blame him for trying, but I'm wondering how much research he has done into the Canadian game. The number of NFL stars who have managed to make the jump into the CFL is few and far between. There's still a steady stream of players heading the other way, but for long-time pros the transition to the Canadian game has been basically impossible. Although the name is the same, the CFL is a vastly different sport. It will be a waiting process to see if Johnson can learn a bigger field, more players, different rules and a faster game. Much faster. At the start of the season the Eagles were running four plays a minute and were considered amazingly fast. In the CFL the play clock is twenty seconds. Good luck to both the Alouettes and Johnson. At the very least this will expose more Americans to the CFL game and that's never a bad thing.

At least that's how I see it and I sit in the cheap seats.
