Patriots Get Ochocinco In Trade With Bengals

This article is more than 8 years old.

A person familiar with the deal says the New England Patriots have obtained wide receiver Chad Ochocinco from the Cincinnati Bengals.

The person, who spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the trade, says Ochocinco has agreed to a new three-year deal with New England.

The trade was first reported by ESPN.

It was not known what the Patriots gave the Bengals.

Ochocinco provides another option for Tom Brady, who has been without a deep target since the Patriots traded Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings last season. In 10 seasons, all with the Bengals, Ochocinco has 751 catches for 10,783 yards and 66 touchdowns. He has made the Pro Bowl six times.
