According to CBSSports’ Jason La Canfora, the Cowboys are not interested in Chad Ochocinco, who was released by the Patriots earlier this week. The Cowboys seemed like a potential destination as they need a 3rd receiver and because they’ve taken chances on frustrating players like Ochocinco in the past. The Cowboys reportedly did their homework on both Chad Ochocinco and, believe it or not, Terrell Owens, but have decided against both.
The Cowboys are not the only team to rule out Ochocinco. The Jets ruled him out earlier this week according to a report from ESPN New York. Also in La Canfora’s report, it said the Rams, Panthers, Ravens, Raiders, and Jaguars ruled out Ochocinco. That knocks out a good bunch of Ochocinco’s potential suitors. Jacksonville ruling him out is interesting because their offensive coordinator, Bob Bratkowski, was the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati when Ochocinco was there. Ochocinco does have one visit lined up, however. He’ll work out for the incredibly receiver needy Miami Dolphins next week.
