Patriots Acquire Chad Ochocinco

Chad Ochocinco (

After dealing for Albert Haynesworth¬†Thursday morning, the Patriots have not stopped with their acquisitions as they have traded for Bengals’ WR Chad Ochocinco¬†this afternoon. Terms of the trade are still unknown, but what we do know is that Ochocinco has accepted a restructured three-year deal in order to come to New England.

The former All-Pro receiver has over 10,000 career receiving yds in his 10 NFL seasons (all with Cincinnati) and is well-known for his on and off-field antics. Can Bill Belichick once again tame another out-of-control player? He certainly thinks so by acquiring two in one jam-packed trading day.

  1. Oh my beloved Patriots. I’m now in mourning. What am I going to watch on Sundays this year?
