Chad Johnson’s cameo in the Liga de Futbol Americano Profesional must have felt solar systems away from his days as one of the most popular players in the NFL, but at least he was back playing football.
Johnson, who is 39 years old, played for the Monterrey Fundidores of the football league down in Mexico, and he torched a poor Saltillo Dinos cornerback who probably hasn’t been to six Pro Bowls for an easy touchdown.

If you squint really, really hard, it still looks like the old Chad Johnson, albeit with practically nobody watching in the stadium.
The arrangement was for Johnson to play just one game, but he seemed to enjoy getting back on the field, tweeting and retweeting often about the experience down in Mexico.

Johnson has always been known for his big personality and doing things his own way, so maybe it shouldn’t be a big surprise he randomly showed up in a Mexican football league game. Johnson told TMZ he’d be willing to do it again, so maybe this isn’t the last we’ve seen of him playing there.
