Chad Ochocinco Makes Rounds at Media Day, But Keeps Quiet About Patriots

No one would describe Chad Ochocinco as being quiet, but at Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day at Cowboys Stadium, he was just that.

Ochocinco was in Dallas Tuesday with his network, but everyone wanted to interview him as much as the Super Bowl players preparing for this weekend, according to The Boston Globe.  

The Cincinnati wide receiver has one year left on his contract with the Bengals, but recently there has been some talk that he is ready to move on.  

Through his Twitter account, Ochocinco has mentioned a possible future with the New England Patriots.  When he was asked about the Patriots on Tuesday, though, he said, "I didn't want to get into trouble" by talking about another team while under contract.  He ended by saying he "has respect for Coach Belichick."

After an NFL Network interview, Ochocinco was asked again about his supposed “flirting” with the Patriots.

"I've never flirted," he said. "I've always been an open and honest person. I would never flirt with the enemy. I'm under contract as a Bengal, and I always will be until [owner] Mike Brown or anyone else says, 'Your services are no longer needed here.' Period."

“And probably when they do tell me that we don't need your services no longer, I still might not go. Seriously. You're not going to make me play 10 years and tell me I'm no longer. No, you've got some explaining to do."

Everyone, stay tuned.
