Ochocinco’s possible next role: Holdout insurance

Chad Ochocinco AP

Chad Ochocinco has gone from playing soccer to riding bulls this offseason.  At some point, he’ll become a football player again.

It’s assumed that he won’t be returning to the Bengals, especially after all his verbal jousting with coach Marvin Lewis this offseason. Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com raises an interesting scenario of how Ochocinco could get stuck in Cincy for a little while longer.

“While Ochocinco looks on the way out with the drafting of A.J. Green he does have one year left on his deal and with Green represented by agent Tom Condon in the No. 4 slot. The Ocho may be insurance if Green doesn’t get to camp on time,” Hobson writes.

That sounds like such a Mike Brown move.   (And the Condon/Bengals combination sounds like a long holdout waiting to happen.)

Ochocinco could show up to Bengals camp and make things uncomfortable for Lewis if he truly wanted out, but that hasn’t been Ochocinco’s style in the past.  Of course, his style may be forced to change if Brown starts to hurt Ochocinco’s earning potential on his next deal.

    Pretty sure he looked on the way out waaaaaaaaaaay before the draft.

    I normally like Chad’s tweets, but this story isn’t even derogatory about him. That guy just really hates PFT I think.

    Two things you’re good for… bad grammar/spelling and stirring up the hornets nest

    Someone seriously plagiarized this story. I’ve read the EXACT same writeup on 3 different sites. Word for word…. Even down to the shot at Mike Brown.

    Every other yr tha media has him headed elsewhere, i’d love to see him in Stripes again. He made some gr8 catches last yr

    Do you think that when all is said and done and everyone has eventually grown indifferent to his attention seeking prancing clown antics that Ochocino will regret never having won a playoff game?

    GO STEELERS!

    Sinko may not have to worry about a contract after he rides the bull.

    Used to love Chad. he should just change his name to Sad. Social media has apparently replaced his interest in leaving it all on the field. Here’s to AJ Green..

    at least he’s keeping busy as opposed to getting high and drinking and driving.

    This guy is just a jerk. If we never hear from him ever again we’d all be better off. He shouldn’t worry about Green coming in. Shipley is already there (unfortunately in Cincy) and is a better receiver than Chad Johnson (not Ocho anything- this is not Mexico) ever was.
