Chad Johnson takes steps toward CFL comeback

VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Chad Johnson is back on a football field, and says he's humble for the opportunity.

The former NFL receiver who once went by the last name of Ochocinco is in a minicamp this week with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. The three-day session began Tuesday and there's a real chance Johnson will be with the club when its season begins in June.

Johnson last played an NFL game in the 2011 season. He was with the Miami Dolphins for training camp the following season, and his contract was terminated one day after he was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

Johnson says it was "a horrible mistake" and it "rightfully" cost him a chance to play.
