BREAKING NEWS: Patriots Acquire Chad Ochocinco Via Trade


Just hitting the wires now is news that the New England Patriots have traded an undisclosed draft pick for the Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco. Ochocinco has agreed to restructure his three-year deal to fit under the Patriots’ salary cap. The man-crush between Chad and Bill Belichick has been well documented, but I honestly never thought a move like this would happen.

Chad’s view on the trade? This from his twitter (@ochocinco):

God is so Good

Think he’s excited?

TE Aaron Hernandez currently wears #85, so it looks like Chad will have to work a deal with Hernandez for 85 or change his name. More to come…

    Coach has lost his mind. Today’s transactions tell the league that we’re running a personaltiy disorder rehab. If it work then it works, but risking the entry of these two into a well built team – you cant be that lucky to have history repeat itself ala Moss and Dillon.

    Dammit Bill, what are you doing…?

    @derekcaron You bring up valid points. These trades can either end up being really great or really bad, and there’s not much in between. Bill’s taking a big locker room risk with these guys, but you have to believe he’s done his homework on these guys and feels comfortable about it. I hope.

    @musketfire Or… Bill is still reeling from the Jets loss last season and developed a drinking problem?
