Chad Ochocinco is saying he wants to play until he's 40.
Im going to play 'til Im 40 years old, and this year Im going to show the world I can, Ocho told Omar Kelly of the Florida Sun-Sentinel.
We don't doubt he really feels this way, but whether other teams will want a 40-year-old receiver is another story. Ochocinco insists that everything is on the up and up when it comes to physical ability.
There is physically nothing wrong with me. I want to race Clyde Gates right now, Ochocinco said, referring to a teammate who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds at the Scouting Combine. Ive asked him. Ive still got it. Im a lot smarter and Im still fast.
One thing's for sure: If he continues to get the same workload he got last year, wear and tear is not going to be an issue.
