Things became very quiet this past year for New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. The normally brash and outspoken player even toned down his act on Twitter, probably trying to fall in line with the Patriot way. But now that the offseason is here, Chad is back to entertaining all of us, his 3.5 million Twitter followers, with his more familiar way of doing things.

Take for example this exchange he had with some people that asked him about being in the midst of so many receivers on the Patriots roster.

I’ll whoop all their asses right now RT @BeevLeeJay: @ochocinco how do you feel bout the over abundance of receivers the #patriots picked up

A follower asked him why he would punch his teammates

I have to establish dominance before camp starts RT @Sandbox_22: @ochocinco why are you going to punch your team mates?!

the receivers weren’t the only ones that were gonna get it from Chad, apparently Tom Brady better watch out

I’m gonna whoop Toms a$$ 1st to set the tone in the lockeroom. RT @tehloneranger: That means you have to hit Tom Brady, doesn’t it?

Him and Welker then a slight back and forth until Welker asked him how he could make more money

No dammit, stocks, stocks, stocks and porn = more money RT @WesWelker: @ochocinco r we going to invest in cars with spinners?

This is the Chad that Patriots fans should want going into next season. Not the reserved guy who never seemed completely interested in what was going on. Let this guy out and it could pay big dividends next season. Some get turned off by him, I think he is hilarious when he is just himself. He’s not a bad guy, just a loud mouth.
