T.O., Ochocinco, want to play for the Jets

By Marc A. Greenberg

With the Jets facing the departure via free agency, whenever free agency begins, of receivers Braylon Edwards and We’ve heard it all season from New York Jets players; everyone is going to want to play for Rex Ryan next season.

Well, we have two candidates: Terrell Owens and Ochocinco.

On this week’s edition of The T. Ocho Show, both T. and Ocho made their plea.

“They will make it to this point every year,” Chad Ochocinco said regarding the team’s second straight berth in the AFC title game. “I’d do anything to play for someone like Rex Ryan or anyone who has that type of mentality.”

Said Terrell Owens: “I’m jumping on that bandwagon, too, because I was thinking the exact same thing, Chad.”

While Owens will be a free agent, Ochocinco remains under contract with the Bengals for one more year. We know Cincinnati Head Coach Marvin Lewis won’t be offended by Ochocinco jumping ship. Lewis is coaching at the Senior Bowl and was asked by Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald how Ochocinco would fit with the Patriots.

“Belichick is smarter than that,” Lewis said. Ouch.
