The Packers cornerback landed at the Minneapolis airport around 11 p.m. CT Monday but was faced with the challenge of getting to Green Bay for the start of OTAs Tuesday morning after missing his connecting flight.
House took him up on his offer, and Chad and his brother, Mike, picked House up in Minneapolis and hit the road.
But House didn't want to sleep; he said they barely even listened to the radio, only conversing for most of the trip.
While a number of Packers quickly responded Eau Claire native Chad Johnson ended up being the one to head up the rescue effort. My brother also tweeted him. "He also posted a 36.5" vertical leap and a 7.09-second time in the 3-cone drill.
House took the Johnsons through the Packers locker room while signing shoes, gloves and stopping for photos by the Super Bowl trophies. His one-year deal with the Packers included a $150,000 workout bonus.

"He talked about how much he loves Green Bay and didn't really care for it in Jacksonville", Chad Johnson said.
Part of it, too, was House's appreciation for being back in Green Bay.
House isn't the first Packers player to get stuck in the Twin Cities and take an unorthodox ride back to Green Bay. "He knows the importance of it. [Practice] is so limited at this time of the year".
"It's important, especially when it's an install day".
Both brothers were at work on time this morning.
"I said to myself, 'I can just pull the (veterans) card (with the team) and say my flight was delayed, '" House said later Tuesday. They turned around and drove right home. "You're driving me across the state, '" Chad said. "For him, he was going to be late for the OTAs, it was a bad travel day, but he made memories for two Packers fans that are going to last forever", said Johnson.
