Report: Ochocino traded to Patriots


Report: Ochocino traded to Patriots

Chad Ochocinco has finally gotten the chance to play for his pal Bill Belichick.

According to a report by ESPN, Ochocinco has accepted a restructured three-year deal to join the Patriots in a trade from the Cincinnati Bengals. The terms of his new deal are not yet available.

ESPN is also reporting that the Patriots sent the Bengals two late-round draft picks, for 2012 and 2013, in exchange for Ochocinco.

Ochocinco was seen boarding a plane to Boston on Thursday. Soon after reports of the deal broke, he tweeted "God is so Good."

According to Pro Football Talk, Ochocinco will receive 6 million this year, exactly what he was owed in Cincinnati.

From PFT:

In New England, Ochocinco will still get 6 million this year, via a combination of salary and bonuses, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

The contract was extended for two more years. Details regarding compensation in 2012 and 2013, and regarding the compensation the Bengals received for Ochocinco, are not yet available.

Perhaps the biggest question is how much of that money hell have to give to Aaron Hernandez in order to avoid having to apply Ochocinco above a number other than 85.
