The Montreal Alouettes have signed former Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Johnson.

The team announced on Thursday that they had agreed to terms with the 36-year-old whose NFL career spanned 11 years, a decade with the Cincinnati Bengals and one year with the New England Patriots.

Johnson had been working out with the team since Monday in Florida.

"Chad Johnson did an outstanding job the last three days," said Alouettes general manager Jim Popp in a release. "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. It was a total evaluation so that it's a good fit. He was very happy and very excited to be on the field again and we are happy to welcome him to the Alouettes."

Johnson has been out of football for the past two seasons. He signed as a free agent with the Miami Dolphins in 2012, but was cut prior to the start of the season following an arrest.
