Patriots ask Ochocinco to restructure contract

The New England Patriots have asked wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to restructure his contract, acording to Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal.

Ochocinco joined the Patriots last season and the results were disappointing, to say the least. He had just 15 receptions all season and was a forgotten man in the New England offense.

Given that the Patriots are asking him to redo his deal - even if it means a pay cut - Ochocinco should probably be grateful that the Patriots still are considering having him around for another year. Ochocinco is currently scheduled to make $3 million in base salary for 2012 with a cap number currently of $4.68 million.
