According to a source the New England Patriots have managed to acquire the wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after he had accepted a restructured three year contract by them. Sources said that the Bengals will also get two draft picks for the 2012 fifth rounder as well as the sixth round of 2013. Ochocino was all ready to make $6.35 million playing for the Bengals in 2011 but the Patriots needed to restructure his contract in order to fit him into their salary cap. Football spreads
Ochocino is a ten year veteran and has caught 67 passes for over 831 yards with four huge touchdowns just last season. This was a drop from back in 2009 which were the last of his six Pro Bowl years when Ochocino got 72 receptions for 1047 yards and around nine TDs He is also seven 1000 yard receiving seasons as he lead the league with 1369 in 2006. Ochocino now provides Tom Brady who is without a target since the Patriots had traded Randy Moss to the Vikings just last season. In the ten seasons with the Bengals Ochocino has 751 catches for over 10783 yards and 66 touchdowns. Football lines
Ochocino has a somewhat outlandish personality and has a knack for making headlines with is loose tongue, the veteran wide receiver has always maintained a great relationship with the team’s head coach Bill Belichick. The two had developed a bond back in the Pro Bowl years and prior to the post season game the on field microphones also caught the duo exchanging some good natured ribbing. Football betting lines
Ochocino said in September of 2010 that “It became a relationship beyond a football player and coach,” “He became a friend of mine. “He’s one that I look up to tremendously. One who I’ve never played for but who I share the same respect for as if he was my own head coach.”
Belichick said in exchange “It’s an odd couple,” “But in the end, I think we have a lot of things in common. “I like Chad. I like him as a player, I like him as a person. I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has in football, and how he competes on the football field.” Plus they are still friends.
