On an incredibly active day for the New England Patriots, the mercurial Chad Ochocinco has joined Albert Haynesworth on his way to the New England Patriots.
Joining Wes Welker, Deion Branch, and a host of other wide receivers, Ochocinco brings the deep-threat possibility that Patriots fans have been looking for since Randy Moss was traded last season.
ESPN Boston is reporting that the former Bengal has agreed to restructure his deal come August 4th, making it a 3-year deal. Ochocinco was set to make $6 million in 2011, and still will when you add in some bonus money.
Bill Belichick and Ochocinco have had a famously amicable relationship, sharing a love of football. Read Chris Price’s piece on the pair for a great look at how they interact. We don’t see Ochocinco causing problems in Foxboro.
Currently on the Patriots roster, each number in the 80’s is taken, with the exception of #89. Perhaps a change to Chad Ochonueve is in the cards?
