Miami Dolphins WR Chad Ochocinco Plans on Playing Football Until the Age of 40
Chad Ochocinco is looking to revive his career with the Miami Dolphins after displaying arguably the worst season of his 11-year career in 2011 with the New England Patriots after catching just 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown all season. Even if he does appear to only have one or two good years left in him, it appears Ochocinco claims he wants to play for at least six more seasons.
Ochocinco recently discussed how he plans on playing in the NFL until he’s 40-years-old–with the first step of the process taking place during the 2012 season by proving to everyone that he still has some gas left in the old tank. It was no surprise to see the Patriots part ways with Ochocinco after just one season, but whether or not he’ll make an impact during his first season with the Dolphins remains to be unknown considering nobody knows if No. 85 can still handle being a No. 1 wideout.
Nothing against Ochocinco, but it seems highly unlikely he lasts another six years in the NFL considering he’s nowhere near being as effective of a wide receiver as he used to be. Even if he does manage to stick around that much longer, it’s doubtful he would have an impact on any team and would most likely just cheer for his teammates from the sidelines instead of actually playing.
Plus–this is a player that has struggled to focus 100 percent of his attention on football over the last couple of years and seems to be more focused on his off-the-field activities instead.
