Former NFL star Chad Johnson took another step toward playing in the Canadian Football League by showing up at the Montreal Alouettes' rookie camp on Wednesday.

Johnson has not played in the NFL since he was cut by the Dolphins in training camp in 2012 following an arrest for domestic battery. He earned a contract and an invitation to camp after trying out at an Alouettes free-agent camp last month.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported Tuesday that Johnson had successfully obtained a work permit to join the Alouettes in Canada.

Johnson reportedly arrived at Bishop's University in Sherbrooke, Quebec, a couple hours late, but he received a welcome from Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban and was excited to discover a McDonald's in the local Walmart.
