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 a wide receivers corps led by Brian Hartline and Davone Bess. Ochocinco, at 34 years old and entering his 12th season, was available.
Its not an indictment of any of the players that we have, coach Joe Philbin said of the Dolphins taking a look at Ochocinco. We like the players that were working with at this point in time.
Remember when Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said they had a plan when they traded wide receiver Brandon Marshall to Chicago for a pair of third-round picks? Signing Ochocinco, as the Dolphins did Monday, wasnt part of the plan.
Make no mistake. Theyre both desperat...
BEST OF MAXIM
Ochocinco is coming home ! Love him or hate, but Chad Ochocinco is now a Miami Dolphins. The very mediocre Dolphins receiving core gets a very interesting facelift!
While there will be sceptics, including myself who is not sure how I feel about the move but none the less the circus is coming to town. Chad certainly a character is a player who comes to work everyday, puts his all...
Chad Ochocinco and Miami could be the perfect match. That idea isn't based on the potential for on-field success, which is there for Ochocinco given the Dolphins' lack of receiving depth. Instead, it's the result of just how entertaining the polarizing veteran's Miami tenure could be. Upon learning that the Dolphins would be featured on this year's version of...

According to OCNN (Chad Ochocinco’s news network), Ochocinco has officially signed with the Miami Dolphins, which will make this year’s Hard Knocks a lot more interesting.
The Dolphins are hoping that Ochocinco will be the number one receiver that they desperately need.
The challenge for Ochocinco is that he has to prove he can still play at a high level, or his...
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...
The big news in the National Football League last night was the Miami Dolphins signing of wide receiver/ PR specialist Chad Ochocinco,the former Bengal turned Patriot that was released by New England just a few days ago due to poor performance.
This appears to be a solid move for the Dolphins, who boasted very little experience at the receiver position. Before brining Ochocino...
Hot News for WR Chad Ochocinco
The Chad Ochocinco experiment didn't work out in New England. But it looks like the Patriots are going to test their luck with another reality TV star. Jesse Holley, a 28-year-old receiver and winner of the reality TV series 4th and Long, signed with the Patriots on Monday. After going undrafted out of North Carolina in the 2007 NFL Draft, Holley was signed to the Cincinnati...
The Miami Dolphins have signed wide receiver Chad Ochocinco just four days after he was released by the New England Patriots. Some are wondering if HBO’s reality show “Hard Knocks” is the motivation behind the decision.

A week before their last set of practices until training camp, the Dolphins continue to tweak their roster. Of course, the signing of Chad Ochocinco was the most noteworthy transaction, but the Dolphins also added a new fullback and released two rookie free agents.
Although fake, these jerseys would look pretty nice as a change-up for the 'Fins
