Post 85 cut by Pats

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots have released wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.

The former Chad Johnson spent one unproductive season with the team, even though the Patriots went to the Super Bowl. He had 15 receptions for an 18.4-yard average and one touchdown, but rarely was a key part of the offense.

Ochocinco, who played 10 seasons for Cincinnati before joining the Patriots. In seven seasons, he had seven 1,000-yard receiving years and a high of 97 catches.

Ochocinco tweets Thursday: "Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the "Patriot" organization... fans were ... wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best..."

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says he is "in the process of gauging interest from potential teams."


I seem to remember him working out with Staff and CJ last offseason... Wonder how much he would pay Scheffler for his #?

Hopefully nothing, he's a bum and he'll be unemployed next offseason.

Whys this in the draft section??

Chad Ochocinco takes his talents to South Beach

Chad Ochocinco wasn't out of work for long.

The veteran wide receiver has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, the team confirmed on Monday night.

The news comes hours after Dolphins coach Joe Philbin acknowledged during a news conference that the team "recently" worked out the six-time Pro Bowl selection. Team owner Stephen Ross later confirmed that the workout was on Monday.

Ochocinco, 34, was released by the New England Patriots last Thursday. He had just 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown in his lone season with the team.

Ochocinco joins a Miami offense attempting to fill the void left by Pro Bowl wideout Brandon Marshall, who was traded to the Chicago Bears in March. Other receivers on the roster include Brian Hartline, Davone Bess and Legedu Naanee.

The Dolphins undoubtedly know they're not getting the same Ochocinco who posted six consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2002 to 2007. He'll likely have to fight to find a role in Miami's offense. If he struggles to grasp Miami's system in the same way he did with New England, his union with the Dolphins could be brief.

But probably not so brief that he won't have a prominent role in the new season of "Hard Knocks." Makes you wonder ...

I hope you are joking. If not, you need to take your medication, because you must be having flashbacks of Chad Johnson as a Bengal being a good receiver. Now he is average...and that's on a good day.

Chad Johnson had problems with route running back when he was Chad Johnson. Those skills have not improved at all...and now that he's lost a step, he's all but worthless.

He's there, he was just a free agent and Chad never looked there.

I was going to say that it seemed like a stretch. The year that Brock Lesnar was trying out for the Vikings, he was all the way at the bottom of the free agents list. I think it was Madden 2005. Pretty funny, not a lot of people know that.
