Chad Johnson may be heading to the CFL after all.

The Montreal Alouettes released a statement in which GM Jim Popp said the team plans to work out the former NFL wide receiver in Florida this week.

"We do expect to meet with Chad Johnson and work him out in Vero Beach, FL this week,” Popp said in the statement. “Talks did take place and have escalated over the last week."

Johnson tweeted that he'll be taking part fully in the mini-camp the Alouettes are holding this week.

Johnson sparked speculation on Twitter last month when he was asked who his next team would be, responding with the BC Lions.

Shortly after the exchange the Alouettes added the exciting receiver to their negotiation list.

In response to that news, Johnson tweeted he would be in shape should the Als come calling.

In 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 with the Cincinnati Bengals, Johnson finished with 766 receptions for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns.
