It only took four days for Chad Ochocinco to find a new team and home after being released by the New England Patriots, and the move gives him a chance to play the Pats twice a year. Chad signed a one year deal with the Miami Dolphins, who are in desperate need of some help at wide receiver. It's a homecoming for the Miami native.

Whether or not 85 could still play wasn't really a question, it was just a matter of who would pick him up. In Ochocinco, the Dolphins get a proven playmaker, but with questions still at QB, it's not apparent who will be throwing Chad the rock.

And there's always the possibility that Chad's antics could annoy his new teammates. With the Dolphins being so thin at WR, Chad could be the go to guy at the position and be expected to play a leadership role.
