While Marvin Lewis has publicly made it sound like he’d be open to having Chad Ochocinco back on the team, Ochocinco doesn’t seem to believe it. (Neither does Bengals.com.)
Ochocinco was asked for his feelings on Lewis’ return on Sporting News Radio’s 2 Live Stews:
“I have nothing to say about that. I’m not the owner of the team. My hands are out of that situation,” Ochocinco said via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “The only thing I can remember, as of right now, about Coach Lewis, is Coach Lewis throwing me under the bus. When it was time to play the Chargers, knowing that I was hurt. That’s the only thing I can remember at this point.”
The Ocho said he was “really hurt” by some of Lewis’ recent comments and didn’t know if they could co-exist.
It’s unclear if Lewis truly got more personnel power when he agreed to return to the team. Whether Ochocinco returns to the team or not should be a great indication.
