Chad Johnson is bored.

The former Cincinnati Bengals receiver said so on Twitter, which he’s still very active on. He has more than 3.5 million followers. He hasn’t been in the NFL since August of 2012, when the Miami Dolphins cut him following his arrest on domestic battery charges.

Johnson tweets about practically everything, like soccer and his love of McDonald’s fast food. He has apparently given up any dreams of playing again at age 38, but he had an idea about how he can get back into the NFL. He wants to be on new Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson’s staff.

Whatever your thoughts are about Johnson, he knows how to play receiver. He made six Pro Bowls in an 11-year career and had 11,059 yards. He was one of the best. I have no idea if he can teach younger players to do what he did, but Browns first-round pick Corey Coleman wants to learn from him.

We’ll see if Johnson can find his way back into the NFL. The league would certainly be more entertaining with him involved in some capacity.
