Ochocinco gets his teammates a Super Bowl gift

Chad Ochocinco AP

Many would argue that wide receiver Chad Ochocinco hasn’t been worth the nearly $6 million that the Patriots are paying him for his services.

With 15 catches on the season, it’s hard to argue with that assessment. His teammates are likely happy that Ochocinco has so much money in his wallet right now, though. Ochocinco gave every member of the Patriots a pair of $400 headphones on Saturday to use on the flight to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports he bought 70 pairs of headphones overall, which would run him a cool $28,000 unless they were hotter than a set of Willard tip calculators.

Ochocinco’s teammates James Ihedigbo and Nick McDonald both tweeted their thanks to the wideout for the gift. McDonald included a photo for those who might be interested in having the same headphones as the Patriots. With the headphones and the Uggs they got from Tom Brady, the Patriots will be traveling to Indy with quite a bit of swag.

The only thing left unknown is whether Ochocinco got the idea to show his teammates’ ears some love from Randy Moss or Terrell Owens.

    It makes it easier for his teammates to not hear him cry and complain. He just wants support when he asks for a ring (if they get it) and he isn’t given one.

    Child Please

    Nice! They’ll match the championship rings. They’ll get in a few weeks.

    The only reason Josh Alper mentioned that the headphones might be stolen is becuase Ochocinco is black.

    SAD really.

    Anyone who would pay for a Monster product is borderline retarded.

    Ochocinco bought 70 of them.

    If my math is accurate….sounds about right.

    Sounds like a nice guy though. Just tragically stupid.

    With Gronk either out or at <50% at game time, i wonder if BB will activate Ocho….I know they brought on a TE to the roster, but the only guy the G-men aren't preparing for…would be Ocho!

    Chances of that happening: 20%
    Chances of Ocho being a healthy scratch: 80%
    Chances of Ocho tweeting pics of his ring (if they win) even though he watched: 110%

    you know what he should have gotten his team…16 catches. that would have been a start.

    Chad is such a good guy. Most people see him only for his sense of humor, or if you hate him his “childish behavior”. I like the guy, and most people forget he is really just a good guy and a team player.

    What on earth is a Josh Alper?

  9. nesuperfan says: Jan 28, 2012 7:51 PM

    Any wonder how these guys go broke as soon as the checks stop coming in?

  10. paulieorkid says: Jan 28, 2012 7:56 PM

    agree 100% with canadianvikefan, Chad is a really good dude. most conflate him with Moss or Owens.

    But Chad is different than the other two – Chad cares about others, and has a more playful good-natured spirit in him.

    And no way we see T.O. or the Freak on a pissed off 2,000 pound bull.

    Mine doesn’t have a 7. Im ruined!

  12. schmokes says: Jan 28, 2012 8:07 PM

    Doesn’t Ocho know that last year, monster gave all the steeler and packer players team colored headphones for free. They probably would’ve this year to. Idiot.

  13. rexachss says: Jan 28, 2012 8:07 PM

    Didn’t he & T.O. do a show together…..then why is T.O. broke and Chad Johnson is buying expensive gifts?

  14. teal379 says: Jan 28, 2012 8:49 PM

    Brady got the guys Uggs? Those boots all those Bieber screaming tween chicks wear?

    Really good way to break that princess image you have there Tom. Really…

  15. GG Eden says: Jan 28, 2012 9:23 PM

    Don’t be so gullible. This is just like Get Smart. Don’t trust Patriots and tech devices. It’s some elaborate set up. :P

  16. descendency says: Jan 28, 2012 9:24 PM

    Uggs makes both womens and mens products. As hard as it might believe, the mens shoes actually look “normal”…

    And no, the uggs comment was just a (bad) joke. Brady didn’t get them uggs.

    @rexachss,

    Do you see TO with a job?

    Please do point out which boots look feminine.

    He got the idea from Lebron I believe

  20. stevenfbrackett says: Jan 28, 2012 9:56 PM

    With his salary he should have got them all an mp3 player too. Still would have come out to a fraction of one game check.

  21. rc33 says: Jan 28, 2012 9:58 PM

    I seriously doubt he paid…or will end up paying…remotely near face value for these. The Super Bowl week pub alone will be worth it to Andre Young.

    Do men give other men presents a lot? Why?

  24. miamiron says: Jan 28, 2012 11:00 PM

    $400,000 PER CATCH SEEMS FAIR

    All the time. It just usually comes in the form of buying a couple of rounds or picking up the tab at the steakhouse.

    Well, at least the Patsies will get something for their trouble…other than their hat handed to them by the Giants.

  27. homelanddefense says: Jan 30, 2012 9:30 AM

    a really nice present for the team would be to play and be effective. Maybe double your best game and have 6 catches!
