Just don't assume yet that Ochocinco will make it. The OCNN reporter likely needs to win a starting job or he'll get cut. There is no in-between, unlike last year in New England.
Teams don't carry fourth or fifth receivers that don't help on special teams unless they really have to. New England did it last year with Ochocinco because they committed money and draft picks on Ochocinco and wanted to see if he could turn it around. The Dolphins should be able to decide in training camp whether Ochocinco will be on the field for them or not.
He's got a great opportunity.
The potential is there for Ochocinco to start. If that doesn't happen, he should be out of a job entirely.
