The Cincinnati Bengals traded wide receiver Chad Ochocinco to the New England Patriots for a pair of late-round draft picks in 2012 and 2013. The relationship between Ochocinco and head coach Bill Belichick has grown over time, even prompting the wide receiver to beg Belichick for a trade during Chad's "Trade Me" character suicide campaign in 2008. Yet during this offseason, which was expected to witness a departing Chad Ochocinco one way or another, several teams inquired about the wide receiver's availability.

According to Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald, the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers were granted permission to trade for the wide receiver.

As for the Bengals, the part where we actually need to focus, Cincinnati will finally transform into the youth movement at wide receiver we thought was supposed to happen in 2008 after T.J. Houshmandzadeh split town, replaced by second-round draft pick Jerome Simpson and third rounder Andre Caldwell. Now we can also add A.J. Green, Jordan Shipley and tight end Jermaine Gresham.

Chad wins by heading out to New England and the Bengals win by giving their younger talent room to expand. A win-win for everyone.
