Chad Johnson doesn't have the jets to burn NFL corners anymore, but he still has more than enough to make Mexican Football League defensive backs look silly.

Johnson, playing in his first game for the team Monterrey Fundidores of Liga de Futbol Americano Profesional, recorded a 41-yard catch for a touchdown in his debut Sunday:

The 39-year-old agreed to play in one game to help generate publicity for the fledgling football league, which began play in 2016. Johnson, previously known as Chad Ochocinco, tweeted out his thanks to the Mexican fans and players for the experience:

This was Johnson's first time playing football professionally since his stint with the Montreal Alouettes in 2015. The six-time Pro Bowler last played in the NFL in 2011.
