Chad Ochocinco: Possible Destinations in Free Agency

With the sudden yet expected release of Chad Ochocinco, the disgruntled receiver became one of the best receivers now on the market.

There should be a number of teams chasing after Ochocinco's services, even though he had the worst season of his career in 2011. He is 34 years old, but I firmly believe he can still get the job done. He has a couple of solid years left in him.

As of right now, there are a number of teams that desperately need a receiver, and a few of those teams should be looking at Ochocinco to come in and (hopefully) make the impact he didn't show in New England.

Even though he is in his mid-30s, Ochocinco has played fairly well since reaching the 30-year-old landmark. Before then, he was one of the most feared receivers in the game, making phenomenal plays in his days as a Cincinnati Bengal.

Since 2002, his second season in the NFL, Ochocinco has accumulated seven 1,000-yard seasons, including a league-leading 1,369 yards in 2006. He narrowly missed out on his eighth 1,000-yard season in his last season as a Bengal, recording 831 yards in just twelve starts. Additionally, Ochocinco has caught at least seven touchdowns in six seasons, maximizing at 10 in 2003.

As I said before, I believe Ochocinco can come into the right offense and put up decent numbers. He has shown over his career that he can be one of the best in the NFL, even though those days are behind him. But in 2012, Ochocinco has all the capabilities of registering a 700-yard season if he's in the right offense.

He's just got to find it and hopefully, one of the following teams contains the correct offense for Ochocinco.
