Chad Johnson may be looking to play with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The wide receiver is a free agent, and is headed to the City of Brotherly Love on Tuesday.

"5 hours past my bed time... if I miss this flight to Philly in the morning it'd definitely be a pisstified moment," tweeted Ochocinco on Tuesday morning.

Could Johnson be heading to Philadelphia for a tryout with the Eagles?

He did not specify why he is going to Pennsylvania, but it's possible that he might be trying to sign with another team. According to Pro Football Talk, Tuesday is usually the day that teams in the NFL try out players.

The Eagles could use some help at wide receiver. Both Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson have been battling injuries. Riley Cooper has missed the first two weeks with a broken collarbone.

Johnson started the summer with the Dolphins, but was released on Aug. 12. Miami decided to get rid of the wide out, following an arrest. Johnson is currently facing a domestic violence charge, after allegedly head-butting his wife.

Even before his troubles with the law, Johnson was struggling on the field. He caught just 15 balls for 276 yards with the Patriots in 2011.
