Chad Ochocinco wasn't out of work for long.
The veteran wide receiver has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, the team confirmed on Monday night.
The Dolphins undoubtedly know they're not getting the same Ochocinco who posted six consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2002 to 2007. He'll likely have to fight to find a role in Miami's offense. If he struggles to grasp Miami's system in the same way he did with New England, his union with the Dolphins could be brief.
But probably not so brief that he won't have a prominent role in the new season of "Hard Knocks." Makes you wonder ...
