Well, it doesn't appear as if JaMarcus Russell will be jobless for long.

On Tuesday, via his twitter account, Chad Ochocinco released some interesting information: "Jamarcus Russel, you on twitter, if not its cool ill see you in #minicamp , ooopsss, did I just leak that info #ocn ".

Well, this was confirmed by sources within the Cincinnati area. Russell will attend the minicamp, with the hopes of impressing the Bengals enough to sign him.

It was reported this morning that a handful of teams are interested in Russell.

However, the Bengals are the only team that has publicly shown interest in the former No. 1 pick.
