Houstonian and former Green Bay Packer Johnny Jolly says he's taking steps to return to the NFL.

The 29-year-old Jolly tells us he has applied to Commissioner Roger Goodell for reinstatement. Jolley was suspended indefinitely back in 2009 in connection with drug charges here in Harris County.

He was recently granted 10 years of "shock probation" instead of serving six years behind bars. If Jolly is allowed to return, he tells the National Football Post that he'd like to go back to Green Bay.
