Drake Helping Former NFL Player Chad Johnson Obtain Canadian Work Permit
It seems Drake is quickly becoming the gatekeeper for all Canadian sports. With a heavy influence on the NBA’s Toronto Raptors franchise already, Drizzy is now trying to help former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson obtain a work permit so he can play football north of the border. Johnson, who signed a two-year deal with the Candian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes in mid-April, responded to an NFL writer’s Tweet yesterday and claimed that Drake talked to necessary authorities in Canada to get the athlete’s paperwork done. The response may have been a joke, but there is no denying Drake’s massive reach.
