(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) — The New England Patriots released six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Ochocinco Thursday.
“Thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play for the “Patriot” organization…fans were f****** wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best…,” Ochocinco tweeted Thursday afternoon.
The 34-year-old Ochocinco played just one season in New England, where he had 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown.
Before signing with the Patriots last off-season, Ochocinco spent his entire ten-year career in Cincinnati, where he had seven seasons of 1,000 or more receiving yards.
