Patriots release WR Chad Ochocinco


After spending Thursday trying to trade wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, the New England Patriots decided to release him.

Ochocinco took to Twitter on Thursday to thank Patriots fans.

"Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the "Patriot" organization... fans were f------ wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best...," Ochocinco tweeted.

I'm sure the Patriots' fans are thanking the front office for making this move as well.

The Ocho Show is probably good enough to be the Broncos #2WR. The only reason the Patriots cut him is because he was set to make $4.7M as a back-up to B. Lloyd.

Funny that they waited until the last day of OTA's to cut him. I really hate the Patriots.

I always like Chad err. Ocho. I never really saw the parallels people made between him and TO. Unlike Owens, most of his stunts seemed to be sort of good-natured. Chad seems to enjoy playing the game and I think many of his celebrations were designed as entertainment, not from the same crazed ego for the sake of ego place that Owens did his stuff.

Even if he's 75 or 80 percent of what he was in Cincinnati, he would still be a upgrade over Willis, or Caldwell, or a 35-year-old Brandon Stokley. Even at the top of the depth chart there are some questions. Demaryius has had a string of injuries and all Eddie Mac jokes aside, Decker doesn't seem to me to be an impact WR in the mold of Fitz, or Calvin Johnson. I imagine worst case, Johnson would wind up being the 3rd receiver.

I agree that Ocho just sort of a harmless troublemaker, but he did cost his team yards with his antics. He isn't as hateful as TO was with his QBS though.

I think Denver should bring him in for a look. T-Mobile hasn't had a talent like this manning their kiosks in years.

I'd rather "take a look" at Braylon Edwards or Anthony Gonzalez, maybe even Plaxico before Ocho.

No chance he ever plays with Peyton Manning, guys like Peyton and Tom are perfectionists when it comes to being where you're supposed to be and that was Ocho Cincos problem, he was too stupid to learn the playbook.

Manning and Brady run the most complex offenses in the NFL with multiple checks and reads.

I doubt there's anything too complex about the pats offense. I think CJ was too stoopid* to figure it out.

The McDaniels/Brady is complicated. Manning's no-huddle Offense is simple.

Ocho (if the Broncos choose), would integrate rather quickly.

Braylon's Edwards? Ya let's bring in a complete disaster who gives no effort. If Jim harbaugh couldn't get anything out of him no way Fox would. The niners most desperate need last year was WR. And they didnt want him.

Chad Ochocinco - WR - Patriots
Multiple sources tell the Boston Globe that Chad Ochocinco just didn't have the "football I.Q." to succeed with the Patriots.
"The Patriots would literally tell him to run a route a certain way, and a minute later he would run it the other way," wrote the Globe's Greg Bedard. "It happened all the time." During recent OTAs, he also struggled to recognize zone versus man coverage. Even if it irked Carson Palmer, Ochocinco often got away with freelancing as opposed to running the correct route in Cincinnati. That was never going to work in the Patriots' precision timing offense, which relies on receivers to make pre-snap reads and run exactly where Tom Brady expects them to run.

I don't like to agree with ol numb nuts but I think he might be right!

If this is true, then he absolutely would not be an upgrade over anyone on the roster. Manning is just as anal about this as Brady.

You do realize he missed most of last year because he was hurt.. And that I would choose him over Ocho. Nowhere did I say let's go out and get him. Way to stir the pot bro.

Stokley is a paid coach, he won't make the final roster. He is there to show the young receivers how play with Manning.
