After a solid workout with the Miami Dolphins on Monday afternoon, Ochocinco has signed a one-year deal to keep his talents in South Beach for the upcoming season, according to OCNN.
The report from the receiver's own Ocho Cinco News Network stated that Ocho himself confirmed the signing.
"We just got confirmation from Chad Ochocinco that he has just signed with the Miami Dolphins," the website said late Monday night. "The 6 time Pro Bowler will now get a chance to finish his career in his home state. More details as they arrive."
The talented receiver had worked out for the Dolphins earlier in the day, and there were reports that Miami head coach Joe Philbin was interested in signing the troubled wideout. Running back Reggie Bush also expressed his interest in bringing Ocho on board.
Ochocinco played in 16 games for the Patriots last season, including the Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants. The 34-year-old caught 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown in his lone season in New England.
Ochocinco also changed his Twitter profile to indicate that he had joined the Dolphins.
