Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco and Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman have been trading pleasantries via Twitter for months. With their respective teams playing on Sunday, the chatter between them shifted to the spoken word.
Specifically, Ochocinco told San Diego reporters that he wants to fight Merriman, according to 10news.com.
Merriman took the high road, explaining that he’ll apply a legal hit to Ochocinco during their game, if he gets the opportunity.
Though we’ve seen Ochocinco get up after taking some solid shots, we doubt that he’d be able to beat up Merriman.
But we’d pay to watch him try.
