Ocho Cinco Signs 3 Year Deal with New England Patriots [Video]

After a busy off season of bull riding, car racing, snake wrangling, trying out for a soccer team, and trying to impregnate a Basketball wife, Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson is now a New England Patriot.

The relationship between Coach of the Patriots and Ocho Cinco is unexpectedly warm with the two having complete opposite public personas.

“I like Chad,” Belichick said before last year’s season opener between the teams. “I like him as a player. I like him as a person. I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has with football, and I like how he competes on the football field. I have a lot of respect for that. An odd couple, but in the end I think we have a lot of things in common.”

Ochocinco was scheduled to make $6.35 million for the Bengals this year. The Patriots wanted him to restructure his contract to fit their cap.

The 10-year veteran caught 67 passes for 831 yards and four touchdowns last season. That was a drop-off from 2009, the last of his six Pro Bowl years, when Ochocinco had 72 receptions for 1,047 yards and nine TDs.

Michael Vick All For Brett Favre Joining the Eagles

The rumor mill has been buzzing about Brett Favre possibly joining Mike Vick in Philadelphia. There’s no indication that Brett is even interested in being backup to Vick in Philly, however Howard Eskin of WIP radio reported the Eagles have “some” interest in signing Favre, but no one is saying the interest is mutual.

“I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup. That will be amazing Learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career,” Michael Vick wrote on Twitter, which it oddly appears he has deleted.

It’s odd to see Favre willing to take the backseat, but to each his own. Perhaps he is noticing that his age is catching up and carrying a team is alot on his shoulders. Either way, no speculation or anyone on Favre’s team saying that the interest is mutual but with the NFL Lockout coming to an end soon, it’ll be interesting to see what chess pieces are moved.

Eagles Asante Samuels Adds Rapper to His Resume [Video]

Once again, an athlete has taken his talents to the studio in attempt to live out their dream of being a rap superstar. I’m kind of interested to see one of these guys show off their singing skills and dropping an R&B song, rapping isn’t that hard. At the end , rapping is just talking fast over a beat. Ha. Okay jokes.

The Fort Lauderdale native teamed up with his boys,  G.U.N.S. (Goons United by the New School) and dropped “Overtime.” Take a listen. What do you think?

Mike Vick Promotes Tougher Laws For Dog Fighting On Captiol Hill [Video]

I’d say that Michael Vick has apologized enough. Vick has even gotten his endorsement back from Nike. If Nike has accepted his apology, wouldn’t you say we all have? *giggles

We know you fought dogs and paid the time for that, but must you keep publicly speaking on the act. We all believe that Mike Vick has learned his lesson, or atleast I do, but his PR needs to keep him away from reliving the past and STILL speaking up against dog fighting. In my opinion.

What is your opinion on Mike Vick promoting now tougher laws for dog fighting?
