Ochocinco says he’ll punt, kick field goals in Pro Bowl

When Chad Ochocinco kicked an extra point during the preseason, he promised our own Tom Curran that an entertaining season was on the way. Ochocinco didn’t lie.

Now with the season set to come to a close, the Bengals receiver is ready to kick again in a meaningless game. (Although they are playing for cash this weekend.)

Ochocinco hit punts during the AFC’s Pro Bowl practice Wednesday, and says he will punt and kick field goals at some point in the game. He says he’s good on field goals to 48 yards. This being OCNN, it’s probably best to get confirmation of the news from Norv Turner.

When Ochocinco wasn’t interviewing players for NFL Network or searching for Tony Romo, he took grief from Deion Sanders for his effort against Darrelle Revis in his final two games.

“Child please on that first game,” Ochocinco said. “Okay, he had a good game. I’ve done what I’ve done over a long time. . . . Nobody talks about the front line putting on the pressure within two seconds so the ball gotta get out of there.”
