Ochocinco wants to play until he's 40

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.
