Will Chad Ochocinco Succeed in Miami?
The Miami Dolphins made a surprising move on Monday when they signed former Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to a one-year deal for the 2012 season. Ochocinco is arguably coming off the worst season of his 11-year career as he only managed to catch 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown in 2011–which makes fans wonder why a team like the Dolphins would bring the wideout on board for the upcoming season.
If a former No. 1 wideout fails to produce big numbers playing alongside one of the best quarterbacks the NFL has to offer in Tom Brady, it says a lot about the type of work ethic they have. Instead of focusing all of his attention on football, Ochocinco has let his work ethic get in the way of other distractions off the football field–most of which seem to be pointless reality television shows.
Honestly, the only thing that makes sense on Miami’s end is they wanted to bring Ochocinco on board to help boost their ratings for HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” Everybody knows the Dolphins weren’t the network’s first choice to display on the hit series in August and for a team that already lacks exciting story lines–it seems like management hopes Ochocinco will boost the ratings considering he’s one of the most entertaining characters in the NFL.
