It’s all luv Evs.
Watch the bottle!
…. but sorry Foxes.
He will not be taking on his role has escort after all…
The signing was reported Monday on the wide receiver’s website, OCNNReport.com, and later confirmed by the team. Hours earlier, Ochocinco had a tryout with the Dolphins, who are thin at the position and dropping a lot of passes in offseason drills.
The Dolphins declined to comment but Ochocinco is likely to join the team for this week’s OTAs, which continue through Wednesday.
Ochocinco, 34, is a Miami native who has made the Pro Bowl six times, most recently in 2009, but had only a minor role in his lone season with the Patriots, catching 15 passes for 276 yards.
The Dolphins traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears in March for two third-round draft picks, and didn’t draft a receiver until the sixth round. Following a practice Monday, coach Joe Philbin conceded there has been room for improvement in the pass-catching during offseason workouts.
“You would like to have some players make it easy and distinguish themselves, maybe make the picture a little bit clearer,” Philbin said. “We have to catch the ball more consistently at every position on offense, because it is not quite where it needs to be.”
Marshall’s off-field issues wore on the Dolphins, and Ochocinco can be high-maintenance, too. His antics have sometimes annoyed his teammates and coaches, and his touchdown celebrations led to an NFL crackdown.
In his career, Ochocinco has caught 766 passes for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns. All of the Dolphins’ returning receivers have less than a dozen career TDs.
To make room for Ochocinco, Miami waive center Terence Brown.
You know what I hear?
The sound of Evelyn Lozada doing a deep sigh of relief.
All is well in reality tv… or is it?
