If we start focusing more on the exploits of Chad Ochocinco on the gridiron instead of some of the zany stunts he pulls off the gridiron, this could turn into a heck of a deal for the New England Patriots.
The Cincinnati Bengals dealt Ochocino, who had clearly grown restless with the organization, to the Patriots on Thursday in a trade that had unknown terms. Well, Clark Judge of CBS Sports has uncovered those terms. Per his report, the Bengals will receive a fifth- and a sixth-round draft pick in exchange for Ochocinco.
The wide receiver had to restructure his contract a little bit for the Patriots. Many believe a new setting with a new team that is as structured as the Patriots will go a long way toward getting the best football Ochocinco has left in him.
If it doesn’t work out, it’s not like the Patriots paid a high price.
