According to Cincy Jungle, the Cincinnati Bengals all-time leading receiver has officially been traded to the New England Patriots. Here's a tweet from Cincinnati Local 12:
#85 was spotted getting onto a place at the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport in Hebron this morning. He's reportedly now in Boston to sign a contract.
The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy says that Ochocinco's deal has been renegotiated to a three years. Chad had 751 receptions for 10,783 yards and 66 TDs in ten years with the Cincinnati Bengals. Ochocinco's departure and Carson Palmer's 'retirement' really is the end of an era in Bengals football. Cincy will receive two late round picks for Ochocinco.
Earlier today, New England traded a pack of gum and a used condom to the Redskins for defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. The Patriots were 14-2 last year and Tom Brady won the 2011 NFL MVP award.
Yeah, the Pats are pretty much gonna kick the Colts ass on December 4th in Foxboro.
