The New England Patriots have decided to release their wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after failing to trade him following a less than stellar season.
The 34 year-old, who played for the Cincinnati Bengals for ten years, spent only one season with the Patriots for which he was reportedly paid $5.75 million.
Welcome to unemployment, Ochocinco!
Chad thanked the fans for their incredible support. â€œThoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the ‘Patriot’ organization … fans were f****** wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best,â€ he tweeted.
Thankfully, Chad will not go homeless since his fiancÃ©e, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, vowed to support him through this difficult time. Yep, itâ€™s time for Evelyn to wear the pants and become a breadwinner. Right?
Evelyn tweeted, â€œAww baby you got cut @ochocinco I got your back! I’m the bread winner now, which means I make the rules!â€ Ah. Girl Power!
