Club Option Approaches In 2011: Chad Ochocinco Would Like To Remain In Cincinnati

On April 20, 2006, Chad Ochocinco signed a six-year $35.5 million contract with the final year on the contract being an option year. If the Bengals exercise the option, then Chad Ochocinco will be paid $6 million. If they do not and Chad leaves Cincinnati, the team still owes him $3.5 million. Chad reflected on returning for a possible 11th season.

When asked if he would like to be back next year for an 11th season in Cincinnati, Ochocinco said: “I don’t know. I hope. Yeah, why not? I’ve been here this long.”

Ochocinco is having the best season in the past three years, on pace to record over 83 receptions for nearly 1,000 yards receiving. Still, the 32-year old will fall short of the 93 receptions, 1,374 yards receiving and nearly nine touchdowns touchdowns he averaged per season between 2003-2007.
