Raiders Actually Interested In Ochocinco?

Notwithstanding a worthlessly bogus item on indicating that the Bengals already have traded receiver Chad Ochocinco to the Raiders for running back Michael Bush and a second-round draft pick, there actually is a belief in league circles that the Raiders have some interest in the player formerly known as Chad Johnson. It currently isn’t known whether any talks have occurred between the Raiders and Bengals. It remains to be seen whether the Bengals would trade him, especially since they could have gotten as much as two first-round draft picks last year from the Redskins for him. That said, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports recently reported that the Bengals might be ready to move the veteran wideout, in the same offseason that teammate T.J. Houshmandzadeh bolted via free agency for Seattle. Meanwhile, James Walker of reports that Ochocinco will lose a $250,000 bonus by not participating in voluntary offseason workouts.
