Update: Chad Ochocinco; Fish, Fish Got What I Wish

     It's been reported by Adam Schefter through OCNN that Chad Ochocinco has signed a one-year-deal with New England's division rival, the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were looking for a veteran target for newly drafted quarterback Ryan Tannehill and it seems that despite his attitude issues, Ochocinco seemed like the perfect fit.
     Last year, the ex-Bengal was targeted 32 times by Tom Brady, but only caught 15 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown. All of these categories were career lows for Ochocinco. His longest reception was for 53 yards and he only produced 51 yards after the catch.
     On a team that has Reggie Bush, Karlos Dansby, Cameron Wake and just traded Brandon Marshall to Chicago for two undisclosed draft picks, Miami is certainly going to have the spotlight often this season. Unfortunately, the Fins aren't going to be all that good this year considering that a 34-year-old Chad Ochocinco is Miami's best receiver. To make matters worse, New England is still the king of the AFC East crop, the Jets still have it and the Buffalo Bills are a young, up-and-coming team. At least the Dolphins will be the center of attention while they're dwelling in the AFC East cellar in 2012.
