In an interview with the Boston Herald’s Ian Rapoport, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis was asked his thoughts on a recent tweet from the Bengals wide receiver several weeks ago, suggesting Ochocinco would be interested in playing in New England.
Ochocinco’s tweet , “PePe and Bill #EPIC,” made some waves across the league and even led Bill Belichick himself to say, “I like Chad — I like him as a player. I like him as a person. [...] I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has with football, and I like how he competes on the football field. I have a lot of respect for that.”
It’s Lewis’ response that’s making waves now.
“Belechick’s smarter than that,” the Bengals coach told Rapoport with a laugh.
In response to hearing the story, Ochocinco responded via Twitter by re-tweeting Rapoport’s message, adding “##AssWhoopnTime.”
Rapoport has since tweeted, “Since the first @ochocinco Tweet, I think fans of at least 15 teams have told him they’d want him on their team. #MadChad getting madlove.”
This one could be just getting started.
