NBC Sports – ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that [Chad] Ochocinco restructured his contract for the 2012 season, lowering his base salary from $3 million to $1 million.
Talk about desperate… Chad Ochcocino restructured his deal last season when he joined the Patriots and he has just done so again. Now number 85 will only make $1million this season instead of the $3million he originally agreed to. I give him some credit, he wants to play for a winning team and is being a true team player. I never thought I would ever say Chad Ochocinoco is being a team player. Now lets see how the Patriots plan on using all of these wide receivers. Paying Ochocinco $1million to be a mascot isn’t a bad deal.
Chad Ochocinco and Tom Brady will combine to make less than $2million next season. How do the Patriots do it?
