Chad Johnson tweets that he is heading to Cleveland for Training Camp

Chad Johnson may be on his way to helping the Cleveland Browns.

CLEVELAND-- It looks as if Chad Johnson is making his way to Cleveland. 

After asking his former coach and current Browns coach, Hue Jackson, for a job through his Twitter account, it appears as though his pleas have been answered.

The cryptic tweet indicates that Johnson has agreed to become some sort of assistant with the Browns, but there is no official word as of yet. 

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Johnson will help the Browns as a guest instructor in Training Camp, but there are no further details at this time.

Johnson, 38, last played in the NFL with the New England Patriots in 2011, catching 15 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown. 

Over his career, Johnson, formerly known as "Chad Ochocinco", caught 766 passes for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns with the Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins and the Patriots. 

Johnson set the following records in ten seasons with the Bengals:

  • Single-season receiving yards (1,440)
  • All-time receiving yards (10,507)
  • Receptions (751)
  • Touchdown receptions (65)
  • Single-game receiving yards (260)
  • Seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving (7)

Browns Training Camp is set to begin on Friday, July 29. Practice is open to the public in Berea.
