Many would've liked to see Chad Johnson still flourishing in the NFL—perhaps as part of a tandem with Tom Brady — but it wasn't in the cards. If you haven't heard, Johnson's football career is continuing as part of CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

His stay there might go better than his short stint with the Patriots from the looks of the above GIF. He scored his first touchdown—a 46-yard catch—in the CFL on Friday night and decided to embrace the referee in celebratory glee. The ref may not have returned the hug, but Johnson certainly didn't let that stop his joy. Don't stop being you, Johnson.
