Chad Johnson uses Twitter to ask for coaching job with Browns

NFL.com confirmed that Hue Jackson invited Johnson to training camp to spend some time with the team's receiving corps, but not in an official capacity with the team. Yet.

Johnson spent 11 years in the NFL and retired after the 2011 season with 766 receptions, 11,059 yards, 67 touchdowns, and some of the most interesting touchdown celebrations we've ever seen.

Never change, Ochocinco.
