Receiver Chad Johnson finally has found a suitor. Now, he simply needs governmental clearance to consummate the deal.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, the Montreal Alouettes continues to wait for word on whether Johnson will be given the appropriate permit to work in Canada. The team could get final word within the next 7-10 days.

If Johnson can’t get a permit, Johnson can’t play in Canada. And if he can’t play in Canada, he can’t play anywhere.

Unless he wants to play in the Arena Football League.
