It seems like Chad Ochocinco has gotten bored of retirement and is set to make his return to football.

But it won’t be in the National Football League.The former Cincinnati Bengals star has signed a deal to play for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League this upcoming season.

"BREAKING: The @MTLAlouettes have signed @Ochocinco. Details to come. #CFL" the official CFL twitter account said earlier today.

Not long after the announcement, the Alouettes made it official by showing Johnson inking his new contract with the Canadian side.

This move was something that was rumored earlier in the week to possibly happen, but never seemed a certainty.

Ochocinco seemed to be loving his retirement and looked like tending to all his social media accounts had become his full time job instead.

Ochocinco last played in the NFL for the New England Patriots back in 2011 where he only caught 15 passes for 276 yards working with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

He then joined the Miami Dolphins in training camp, but was cut during the filming of ‘Hard Knocks’.
