Chad Ochocinco is not happy that the NFL lockout has taken place. He is also not happy with the current team he is under contract with, the Cincinnati Bengals. The 33 year-old wide receiver doesn’t seem content spending a 11th straight season with the Bengals.
A member of the Bengals since 2001, when he was drafted in the 2nd round. In 151 games, Ochocinco has made 751 receptions for over 10,000 yards and 66 touchdowns.
His time with the Bengals will likely come to end with the threats made by Carson Palmer to retire if he isn’t traded. Also, Ochocinco like many other veteran players, wants to win a championship before his time in the NFL is over.
Ochocinco said he would welcome a move to the Bears: “Honestly man I’m just sick of losing.”
Ochocinco still has some talent left in him no doubt and if the Bears decide to trade some draft picks or sign him if the Bengals release him, it could turn out to be a great decision. Add him to the mix alongside Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett and Devin Hester and the Bears receiving core would make them much improved.
Ochocinco is sick of talking about the lockout. By asking him what his take was on the lockout, he responded “I don’t give a f***.”
Obviously many people have been constantly asking him and other NFL players that same question, so I didn’t expect anything else from him in return.
In the meantime, Ochocinco has been in the news for possibly making some MMA appearances and as of today a scheduled tryout with the MLS. Sporting Kansas City an MLS team has invited Chad Ochocinco to a four-day tryout next week. He says “soccer was his first love.” Maybe taking his mind off American football will be a good idea for Ochocinco.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Ochocinco. Maybe Ochocinco will head to the Bears, we will just have to wait and see, in the meantime he certainly isn’t pleased with the Bengals, so a change of scenery is much needed for him.
