    The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to a one-year deal. The Dolphins worked out Ochocinco after he was released by the New England Patriots on Thursday. Ochocinco, 34, is a Miami native. He made the Pro Bowl six times, most recently in 2009, but had only a minor role in his lone season with the Patriots, catching 15 passes for 276 yards.

    Meh, I doubt he makes the roster unless he pulls a TO and shows he has something left.

    Really??? what wide outs are gonna outplay him. I think him getting the ball so little was because of the pats system he should do better on the fins

    Davone Bess is the only WR that they have who might be more than a 3 on another team.

    Baskett are you saying the Dolphins have a fisher-price offense that any idiot could pick up?

    Just because you don't know any names doesn't mean a team can't have success.

    Not saying its a fisher price offense but it has to be less complicated then the pats

    Im not going by there names i know there receivers one of my best friends is a dolphins fan but i mean the guys you guys have are not that great by any means. Chad is a multitime probowler that imo people shouldent be counting out. Its not like TO hes not coming back from an injury. Remember in 2008 when he did horrible and people were saying hes getting old then came back to have a 9td year the next? I think it could happen again im not hating on the fins i actually want them to do good

    I really doubt hes gonna be much of a problem as much as its hard to believe he has matured since his bengal days

    i think its a good fit, he was a bad fit in NE with their gimmicky butt pass system...he just is too much of a freelancer for what they run. they needed a WR and he fills that role. I dont think hes completely washed up yet.

    plus its hard knocks gold

    and i dont think hes "nothing but trouble" he never really was, he certainly isnt now

    He's never been "trouble.". Dramatic and excess sit baggage, but not trouble.

    Wasn't he a healthy scratch for the Pats championship game?

    Everyone knows he had problems learning the Pats offense...can he learn the west coast now?

    Not a horrible signing...maybe similar to the Moss signing in San Fran. I'm a little surprised it happened so fast.

    Questions that Joe Philbin will receive:

    Hard Knocks
    Chad Johnson
    Lauren Tannehill
    Maybe a Football related question

    My thoughts exactly. If not for Hard Knocks, would they sign him?

    Yes, he has inside info on the Pats, and he is a veteran to help the young players. CJ is a clown, but at least he has never been arrested.

    You shouldn't have said that. I bet he gets arrested before the season ends.

    About the "inside info" on the Pats...he's going to have nothing more than they already know. He'll have nothing from the offensive side, if anything he'll have less considering he couldn't grasp the concept of the playbook in NE and it's known that Brady had zero confidence in him as a player.
