Jolly tweets he'll be at Tuesday's mini-camp

Is Johnny Jolly’s wait finally over?

According to a series of tweets on Monday night, the 6-foot-3, 325-pound defensive lineman indicated he will be back at the Green Bay Packers’ mandatory mini-camp on Tuesday.

Jolly, 30, was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in 2010 after multiple arrests in Houston for felony codeine possession. He served six months of a six-year term in jail for violating probation and was released last May and placed on shock probation for 10 years.

This isn’t the first time Jolly has indicated on Twitter he was returning to the team after saying he’d be back at last week’s organized team activities after graduating from his court-ordered drug-rehabilitation program in Houston.

However, Jolly remained noticeably absent as he continued to work through the process of returning, according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

This time, it seems the table is set for his return. Earlier on Monday, McCarthy told a collection of local reporters at his annual golf outing that he expects his full complement of players at Tuesday’s mini-camp.

Also on Monday, Packers cornerback Sam Shields signed his second-round tender and will report to mini-camp after missing OTAs as he looks to secure a long-term extension with the team.
