Eagles Want Ochocinco?

Though it’s still unclear whether the Cincinnati Bengals are ready to ship receiver Chad Ochocinco to any other team, Michael Smith of ESPN (via has suggested that the Eagles are interested in acquiring the veteran wideout. “I am hearing there is interest in Chad Johnson,” Smith said. “Now there’s been some back and forth as to whether or not he is officially on the market. I think everybody in Cincinnati has signed off on moving Chad Johnson except for owner Mike Brown. The Eagles could be in the picture. They have two first-round picks. They need a receiver.” Parsing through those words, it’s possible that one or more teams other than the Eagles are interested in Ochocinco, and that Smith is surmising that the Eagles might emerge as a candidate. We’ve previously heard rumblings that the Raiders have interest, but it’s unknown whether the Raiders and the Bengals have engaged in negotiations.
