Braxton Miller Will Work With NFL Great Chad Johnson Ahead Of Rookie Season

Former NFL star wide receiver Chad Johnson may be more well-known for his off-the-field antics than his play on the gridiron, but in his day, he was one of the best at his position. Johnson, who played 11 seasons in the league, had over 10,000 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns - mostly for the Cincinnati Bengals. It looks like he'll be attempting to help out a young, promising wideout this summer.

Johnson tweeted Friday that he'll be working with former Ohio State star Braxton Miller ahead of his rookie season. He says that he'll help Miller improve his technique and route-running.

">@BraxtonMiller5, he's coming down to Miami to work w/ the boy, feet & routes gonna be in rookie camp.

Miller, who played quarterback for most of his collegiate career, is still learning the wide receiver position. There's no doubt that training with a former NFL star will help him in his transition.
