WR Chad Ochocinco catches on with Dolphins

Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has found a new place to call home, four days after being released by the New England Patriots. He'll still get to see the Patriots twice a year since he is now a member of the Miami Dolphins. The story was broken by Ochocinco's own news operation, OCNN. ProFootballTalk.com has confirmed the news and added that Ochocinco signed a one-year deal that has a "multi-million-dollar incentive package."

Fantasy Analysis:

As PFT points out, at least this should make the upcoming season of HBO's "Hard Knocks" more watchable. The Dolphins are starving for a difference-making wideout. Ochocinco is most certainly not that type of player at his current age, but he does give them some sorely needed veteran depth. Their No. 1 WR, Davone Bess @davonebess, is purely a possession guy. And their No. 2 WR, Brian Hartline @brianhartline, is still just Brian Hartline. I have no doubt that Chad will get more run in Miami than he did in New England. But I doubt the extra numbers will make him a fantasy factor.
