Ochocinco stays in AFC East, lands with Dolphins
It appears as though the request from Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson fell on deaf ears.
Moments after the New England Patriots announced that they had severed ties with wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after just one season, Johnson sent a tweet to the 34-year old player to try and woo him to Buffalo.
@StevieJohnson13 OG @Ochocinco tell ya agent to set that up with The #BillsMafia. Ya Field Swag was Contained a Whole Season. Come TurnUp wit us in BuffCity.
While Ochocinco retweeted Johnson's request, the receiver jetted down to Miami for a workout over the weekend.
Upon that session, the Dolphins extended a one-year contract to the Miami-native to give a much-needed boost to their receiving group. Ochocinco joins Brian Hartline and Davone Bess as the likely top targets for whichever quarterback wins the job in Miami this season.
