MONTREAL - The artist formerly known as Ochocinco has been more like Choke-o-stinko in the CFL so far this season.

Chad Johnson didn't have much to say to the media Thursday about comments made by his agent earlier in the week regarding the 36-year-old receiver still wanting back in the NFL.

Instead, on Thursday morning in front of his locker stall in the Montreal Alouettes dressing room, Johnson gently pushed a camera away from his face before kissing the cameraman on the forehead.

But the six-time Pro Bowler sat back down and clammed right up when asked about what Drew Rosenhaus had to say a day earlier on ESPN.com.

"I don't read, that's for you guys," Johnson said, claiming ignorance. "Don't tell me, I don't want to know."

For anyone who does, the subject revolved around the possibility of Johnson getting a phone call from an NFL club as that league's training camps got underway last week.
