Receiver Chad Ochocinco signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins after he worked out for them on Monday — and just four days after his release by the New England Patriots.
The Dolphins confirmed Monday that they gave Ochocinco a workout. The 34-year-old Ochocinco made the Pro Bowl six times, most recently in 2009, but had only a minor role in his lone season with the Patriots, catching 15 passes for 276 yards.
Ochocinco is a Miami native who played for the Hurricanes. The Dolphins are thin at receiver after trading Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears in March for two third-round draft picks.
