CINCINNATI — Disgruntled receiver Chad Johnson showed up, but wasn't taking part in drills, at the Cincinnati Bengals' minicamp.
Wearing his helmet and jersey, Johnson stood and watched his teammates go through drills on the practice field Thursday, at the first practice of a mandatory three-day minicamp. He arrived at the field a few minutes after the start of practice.
He hasn't worked out with the team since the end of last season, when the Bengals went 7-9 and the Pro Bowl receiver decided he wanted out.
Johnson unsuccessfully lobbied for a trade before the draft, threatening to sit out the season if he didn't get his wish. The team refused a trade offer from Washington.
