Former Cat, Garrett ‘Juice’ Johnson signs with CFL team


Former Cat, Garrett “Juice” Johnson announced on Twitter this morning that he has agreed to terms on a contract with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.

After going undrafted in last year’s NFL Draft, Johnson signed an UDFA deal with the Chicago Bears, but did not make the team out of training camp.

During his four years in Lexington, Juice finished with just shy of 2,100 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.

Johnson had some big moments while suiting up for the blue and white, but by far my favorite memory was this play:

Stephen Johnson said it best on how we all feel about any highlights from this game.

When looking at the Blue Bombers, the finished last season with a record of 10-8, but are currently the team that has the longest Grey Cup (CFL Super Bowl) drought.

Now I would be the first to admit that I don’t know a single thing about Canadian Football. I do know that there are differences from American Football, but I couldn’t tell you what.

I don’t know what Juice’s chances are of making the team, but I know I speak for most in wishing him the best of luck. He brought us all a lot of great memories, lets hope that he can now continue to make memories for himself.

    Good luck Juice! You’ll be playing in my wife’s hometown. Take ‘em to the Grey Cup!

    Sam, the main differences in the CFL are:
    3 downs not 4
    110 yard field
    20 yard end zones

    So, it’s a very pass happy league. They even let WRs take off running toward the line of scrimmage pre snap like indoor football.

      Oh, and the field is wider too but I don’t know how much.
