According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin stated that they already worked out free agent wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. If that’s the case, then they never offered him a contract, which likely means they’re not interested in signing him.

I believe the reason why the Dolphins chose to not offer Ochocinco a contract is because he simply wasn’t that impressive during his work out.

Dolphins, please just say NO to Ochocinco

The Miami Dolphins don’t have a whole lot left to do with their roster before the 2012 season.  Sure, they still have to sign Ryan Tannehill, Olivier Vernon, and Michael Egnew…but those contracts should be done in the next couple of weeks.  All that’s really left for Jeff Ireland and the Dolphins front office, is [...]

Will Ryan Tannehill stop the Miami Dolphins QB carousel?

The Miami Dolphins are a very proud franchise that has won 2 Super Bowls back to back in 1973-74 (VII and VIII), and have appeared in 5 throughout their history (losing in Super Bowls VI, XVII and XIX).  They had the highest winning percentage in the 1970’s in all of professional sports.

David Garrard Takes First-Team Reps In Miami Dolphins OTA’s

David Garrard is getting first-team reps at QB for the Dolphins. There was a very interesting development today in Miami as the Dolphins were giving quarterback David Garrard the first-team reps in their organized team activities according to a report by NFL.com. At this point, it is way too early to jump to conclusions on the decision to give Garrard first-team reps. Dolphins...

Dolphins’ Daniel Thomas blames injuries for his poor rookie year

Daniel Thomas was a 2nd round pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2011, but struggled as a rookie, rushing for just 581 yards on 165 carries (3.5 YPC), catching  only 12 passes for 72 yards, and only scoring once. Today, Thomas blamed injuries for his struggles as a rookie. If that’s true and he’s healthy in 2012, he could have a breakout year. He’s a very talented player and Reggie...

Ochocinco in Miami? It only makes sense

At first glance, the marriage between wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and the Miami Dolphins wreaks of desperation. It reminds you of one of those relationships that starts shortly before closing time at the bar. Then you take a longer, deeper look at this union and nothing changes. Its a move borne of desperation. But heres reality: Training camp is fast approaching. Miami had...

OCNN reports Ocho has signed with the Dolphins

Only one person could break the news of where Chad Ochocinco would sign, and guess what happened on Monday night, OCNN reported that Ocho has signed a 1 year deal with the Miami Dolphins. There had been speculation all weak that Ocho would return home to Miami and join the Dolphins and he has done exactly that. Miami is a solid fit for Ocho where he will have the opportunity to...

Is Chad Ochocinco a good fit for the Miami Dolphins?

As predicted, veteran wide receiver Chad Ochocinco will hold a tryout for an NFL team next week. First up, the Miami Dolphins according to several sources, but is Ochocinco a good fit for the Miami Dolphins? It certainly would be for Ochocinco as he can escape the snowy confines of Gillette Stadium and spend his time on the sands of South Beach. He’ll love the fact that HBO’s...

Chad Ochocinco signs with Miami Dolphins, now what?

After working out for the Miami Dolphins early on Monday, the franchise announced Monday night that the veteran wide receiver Chad Ochocinco had indeed been signed by the organization to a one-year contract. Now what? Personally, I think this was a poor decision by a team which has a rookie head coach and will be starting a rookie quarterback at some point this season. The folks...

It’s official: Ochocinco signs with Miami Dolphins

According to Chad Ochocinco, Chad Ochocinco has officially signed with the Miami Dolphins. A short while ago, Ochocinco broke the news on his @OCNN twitter account.

Chad Ochcocinco to the Dolphins: Fantasy Impact

Chad Ochocinco has agreed to a one year deal with the Miami Dolphins in a move that many are calling a PR ‘move’. Hard knocks notwithstanding, Ochocinco, if he can learn the offense, is a solid addition to this team, even if he is primarily acting as a decoy and tying up the oppositions number one corner. His play really suffered with the Patriots, but he should have a couple...

Miami Dolphins sign Chad Ochocinco

This is just a one year signing for minimal money, but I don’t like it. The Dolphins aren’t going to compete this year either way so all Ochocinco is going to do is take reps away from all of their young receivers, who need experience and a chance to prove what they can do for 2013 and beyond. I know the Dolphins have a rookie quarterback in Ryan Tannehill and they need to do...

Chad Ochocinco Could Be Close to Joining Miami Dolphins, Reggie Bush 'Would Love' Former Patriots Receiver

Chad Ochocinco finally received his walking papers from the New England Patriots late last week. Only four days later and the 34-year-old wideout may have already found a new landing spot. After plenty of rumors over the weekend, Ochocinco had a tryout with the Miami Dolphins on Monday and could be close to landing a deal to stay in his home state. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin...

What Boston Sports Team Would You Most Want to See Featured in Behind-the-Scenes Reality Series?

HBO's Hard Knocks has been one of the most anticipated and entertaining sports shows on television over the past few years. Based with the Miami Dolphins for the upcoming season, the show seemed to be headed for one of its more bland years -- it certainly wouldn't compare with Rex Ryan and the Jets. But the addition of polarizing wide receiver and reality TV efficiando Chad...

Report: Ochocinco signs with Dolphins

Free agent wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday. Ochocinco had announced the signing on his website, the Ochochinco News Network, but Schefter later confirmed the report. Ochochinco had been released by the New England Patriots, and the Dolphins had confirmed earlier on Monday that Ochocinco...

OchoCinco Lands in Miami

Wide receiver Chad OchoCinco has agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Financial terms were not disclosed. Fantasy Spin: OchoCinco is coming off a dismal 2011 campaign with the high-powered Patriots, but he will have better odds of making some noise with a Dolphins offense that gravely lacks weapons at receiver. In other words, the 34-year-old former stud is at least...
