Patriots Make Bold Move to Shore Up WR Core by Trading for Ochocinco

By Columnist Chris Bach

He was coy about it earlier, and now CBS affiliate WKRC in Cincinnati is reporting that former Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco has been traded to the New England Patriots. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the compensation is two late-round draft picks: a pick in 2012, a pick in 2013.

Chad Ochocinco has agreed to a restructured 3-year deal, according to ESPN’s John Clayton and NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.

Entering his 11th season and assuming Joey Galloway is retiring, Chad Ochocinco would be 6th among active players with 10,783 receiving yards and 7th with 66 receiving TDs.
