Chad Ochocinco Reportedly Traded To Patriots

OK, now New England is just messing with us now.

A few hours after reportedly acquiring DT Albert Haynesworth for the measly sum of a fifth round pick, the Patriots have reportedly acquired Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco. ESPN's John Clayton reports Ochocinco had to restructure his contract to get the deal done. Now he has a new three-year deal in New England.

The cost? A late round pick in 2012 and another in 2013.

Unbelievable.

Every year, it seems the Patriots do it. Say what you want about Ochocinco, but I firmly believe he steps into New England and puts up big numbers sort of like WR Randy Moss did a few years ago when a lot of people thought he was done.

Soo...Monday night in New England on November 21 just got a little tougher.
