Report: Patriots ask Ochocinco to restructure contract


Report: Patriots ask Ochocinco to restructure contract

If Chad Ochocinco is going to be back with the Patriots for the upcoming season, it won't be with the contract he's currently under right now.

The Patriots have reportedly approached Ochocinco about restructuring his deal, a deal that has him being paid 3 million in 2012-13, and 3 million in 2013-14, according to a tweet from Sports Business Journal's Liz Mullen.

The news shouldn't be too shocking, as Ochocinco had a letdown year across the board, finishing with just 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown.

Ochocinco made over 5 million dollars this season with the Patriots, or in other words over 1 million dollars for every three catches.

But seriously, how could they do this to him on National Pancake Day?

He also tweeted that he donated "a thousand" dollars to Shriners Hospital for Children in order to get free pancakes.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1


Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
