Free-agent WR Chad Johnson (Dolphins) agreed to a deal with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. However, the team is awaiting word on whether Johnson will be given the appropriate permit to work in Canada. The team could get final word within the next seven to 10 days. A training camp assault of Johnson's wife in 2012 ultimately be what keeps him out of Canada, as people with criminal records are routinely blocked from securing permission to work in Canada.

Free-agent WR Chad Johnson (Dolphins) was released from jail after serving seven days of a 30-day sentence for violating probation of his domestic violence conviction. Johnson expressed that he learned his lesson.
"I think that Judge McHugh was able to get me do something many people have tried to get me to do for a long time: slow down, just at life in general," Johnson said. "She was able to get me to do that, maybe not in the best circumstances for those on the outside but I see being able to sit down and think about life and where I'm going from this point was probably on one of the best things that could happen to me right now. You have to understand, I haven't had any chances because I've never been in any trouble before. I've done nothing wrong ever," Johnson added. "This is my first time being in trouble with the legal system. My trouble in the past has been having fun entertaining fans when it came to playing the game of football so this is all new to me."

Free-agent WR Chad Johnson (Dolphins) was released from jail in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Monday, June 17, after he apologized for his inappropriate behavior during a court hearing the previous week. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh cut his 30-day sentence after hearing his apology but ordered him to perform 25 hours of community service and attend twice-a-week domestic violence counseling sessions as part of his probation, which she extended three months from its initial sentence, through mid-October.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson will try catching on with an NFL team but is a long shot to offer fantasy value in 2013.

Free-agent WR Chad Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in jail Monday, June 10, for a probation violation in his domestic violence case. His legal side had reached a deal with prosecutors for community service and counseling instead of jail time. After a deal was supposedly in place, he was asked by the judge whether he approved of his lawyer, and Johnson then gave his lawyer a tap on the backside, in the football parlance of approval. This angered the judge, who insisted Johnson wasn't taking the proceedings seriously before rescinding the plea deal and handing down the jail sentence.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of how this ends, his personal problems may derail any chance of returning to the NFL for the 2013 season. Even if he does, fantasy owners shouldn't rush to test whether he can still be effective.
