Chad Ochocinco is joining the New England Patriots, according to ESPN.

According to a random tweet earlier in the day, Ochocinco dropped hints that he was coming to New England, sending a direct message to @JC-Shivley stating, “Media knows nothing but I’m going to enjoy clam chowder.” 

The Patriots are taking risks this offseason. With the trade for Albert Haynesworth and his on-the-field and off-the-field issues, and now Chad Ochocinco with his antics, Patriots fans should be in for a wild season.
