It seems highly doubtful that he'll be here in New England next season, so where does Chad "Johnson" land with his name change?
We now know that a complicated verbiage system isn’t going to work for him, so who has a system that will fit his skill set?
First off, he’s used to running numbered routes instead of the word terminology the Patriots use. That means he needs to go to a true west coast offense that doesn’t use bunch formations or multiple personnel changes.
To make it simple, he needs to be in an offense that features him as the two or three number wide out.
He can’t have to think about it, he just has to instinctively go out and do it, and that’s again a west coast system where the quarterback makes the adjustments and reads, not the receiver.
With that being said, what team fits the new Chad Johnson (or the old Chad Ochocinco… I’m confused now)?
The Seattle Seahawks have a pretty straight forward west coast system, and if they are going with Tavaris Jackson for another year, Ochojohnsinco would be a good fit.
The Minnesota Vikings are another west coast style team that could use a receiver.
However, we think we know where he's going to land... during the playoffs, Ocho tried to make nice with...yes …the Cincinnati Bengals, sending a thank you note to them for sending him to New England. That translates into 'please, I’ll be good now, I’m a new person.
Expect Chad Ochocinco Johnson to head back home to Cincy, where he can help them as a third receiver in the same verbiage he has always known. Keep it simple.
