Chad Ochocinco is “taking his talents to Miami,” like Lebron! It looks as though his fiance Evelyn Lozado will be smiling from ear to ear. Her man, former Pro Bowler Ochocinco, just inked a one year contract with the Miami Dolphins only four days after being released from the New England Patriots. The couple already share a home in Miami, Fl. so it couldn’t have turned out better!
“Congrats to Chad,” tweeted his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. “It’s nice to come home.”
The 34-year-old Ochocinco, a Miami native, made the Pro Bowl six times, most recently in 2009. He had only a minor role in his lone season with the Patriots, catching 15 passes for 276 yards. It wasn’t clear if he couldn’t find his place with the Superbowl winning Patriots, or if they didn’t make a place for him, but either way, I’m glad he’s no longer there.
Ochocinco is known for his outlandish personality, his high-maintenance attitude and his willingness to ruffle feathers and challenge authority. He is a true talent, that can be very entertaining and silly. But, this past season, he was noticeably more reserved. Maybe it’s a sign of maturity? Who knows?? Either way he is a perfect fit for Miami. They need a great receiver and visually it will be nice to see both Chad and Reggie Bush in the same uniform. Serious eye candy!
I hope this football union lasts. I’m sure Miami will welcome both the talent and the antics of Mr. Ochocinco.
