The New England Patriots have released wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after a forgettable tenure with the organization. The outspoken former All-Pro wideout caught just 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown. In the high octane Patriots offense, if a receiver can get open, Tom Brady WILL get them the ball. In my opinion, his career is likely over.
NFL analysts seem to think that Ochocinco is not finished, and somebody will give him a chance, but the flamboyant wideout is more of a circus act than an offensive weapon and I cannot imagine that any NFL team would want to bring him into their locker room. I take that back, the New York Jets will probably think its a good idea, imagine Tim Tebow throwing ducks to Ochocinco in New York.
If I had to bet, I would say thay we next see Ochocinco on a reality show on VH1, with his reality star fiancee…who I think used to date Flavor-Flav. Yuck. Everyime she kissed me I would think of Flavor-Flav’s mummified body wearing a clock and Viking helmet laying into her and instantly projectile vomit.
If Chad Ochocinco really gets desperate, the Allen Wranglers of the IFL recently cut ties with his buddy Terrell Owens, they have a job openings for an attention hungry wide receiver…
