Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has come out and stated that there’s nothing wrong with him physically, even though some analysts believe he’s lost a step after watching him play in New England last season.
“For journalists, NFL writers, people who claim they actually know the game,” Ochocinco said. “I’m talking to people who think they know their stuff when it comes to athletes, for them to think something is wrong with me physically is ridiculous. But I was in a place I respect big time. If you don’t know every nook and cranny of the way that engine moves, if anything in that engine calls it to stall, it’s not going to work. And that’s what it came down to. I didn’t fit.”
I agree with Ochocinco, I think it’s too quick to say he’s done and can’t play anymore. From what I saw last season, he was lost in the Patriots’ offense and he’ll now have a chance to prove he can still play.
