Ochocinco will now be a Miami Dolphin, joining the place where he grew up.
What made the signing even more exciting was when he broke it on his sports blog at the OCNN Report. The Dolphins then confirmed the news for the six-time Pro Bowler.
Eighty-five is coming off the worst season of his career with the Patriots, as he was unable to cooperate with the playbook. It seems like he just couldn't get it.
Now in Miami, Ochocinco fills the need for them at wide receiver, as he could be their top option with Brandon Marshall gone. He provides a nice threat for defenses and a very helpful piece for new rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
However, the HBO show Hard Knocks must be the ecstatic with the news as they will host the Dolphins for this season. They had fun with Ocho's antics in the past shows when the Cincinnati Bengals were on there. Now in Miami, it's going to be a fun one to witness.
Congrats to Chad with the signing. Looking forward to him next year.
